Ciara and her Seattle Seahawks quarterback boyfriend, Russell Wilson have gone public saying they will not have sex until they are married.
That is a different kind of news, nowadays. It is not unheard of, but when it does happen, the name Duggar is usually involved somethere.
Asked to confirm or deny this rumor, Ciara did not hesitate.
"It's until the deal is sealed! Absolutely," she said.
It is one thing for a couple to decide that between themselves. Is Ciara ok with the idea that Russell Wilson is telling everyone about it?
"It was an organic thing for him and I think he was just being honest about where we are," Ciara said.
That doesn't mean it's easy.
"I think both of us look at each other and we're like – whew," Ciara laughed. "But we take it one day at a time and keep it going with each other, and I'm really enjoying every day that we're sharing."
Russell Wilson concurs. In an interview with Pastor Miles McPherson, he joked, "I ain't lie – I need y'all to pray for us. Because I know you have seen her on the screen now. If there's a 10, she's a 15."
I love how Ciara and Russell Wilson are remaining celibate. That's how it should be anyways! ❤️

Russell Wilson is so head over heels about Ciara, he can't stop talking about her.
“[Ciara] is one of a kind,” he says. “A good friend introduced us, you know, when I was in LA at one point. So ever since, we’ve been talking every day. It’s been so good.”
Ciara's ex and father of her child, hip-hop artist Future, did not take kindly to Ciara having Wilson around their son.
"You don't even bring a man around your son," Future said. "You know this dude for a few months and you're bringing him around your kid? Who does that? Nobody does that."
Ciara blew the comments off.
"Ciara was more annoyed with Future's comments than sad or upset," a source said. "She is really strong now and so happy. She thinks Future needs to live his life and leave her happy relationship out of it."
If you don't like Ciara, I don't like you
