On Tuesday night, newlywed Russell Wilson took the stage during an event for his Why Not You? Foundation and opened up about what marrying Ciara and becoming a stepdad to her son Future Jr. means to him
While he takes to social media early and often to share his love for his new bride and new step son, this was one of the first times he has spoken about him in public.
Wilson took the stage to say, "[Ciara] has been an inspiration since day one, and her little one, too, just watching him. You know, it’s interesting. I was saying to somebody the other day—this is a little bit personal, but I think it’s important—but, you know, I was saying to somebody the other day that being a stepfather is one of the most loving things you can do. You know, you really, really learn how to love love."
He continued, "Because especially when it’s not yours, you know, you realize that every kid matters in this world. You know, every person matters. Every child matters. Every heart matters. Every soul matters. Every mind matters. And that’s why we’re here honestly, just for situations like that. That’s what I think about. When I see her little son every time I’m around her and when I’m not around her, I always think about them, too, so they’re an inspiration."
Check out a quick clip his beautiful and emotional words.
Russ seems more than happy to step into the stepdad role, and it is clear that he truly loves his wife and her son.
Say what you will about Russell Wilson, it seems like Ciara really found herself a good one.
