Ciara's Boyfriend, Football Star Russell Wilson, Explains Why They're Abstaining From Sex

Russell Wilson believes Ciara is the "most beautiful woman in the world." That's one of the intriguing statements the football star made about his girlfriend in a revealing interview with Miles McPherson, a pastor at the The Rock Church. But it's the Seattle Seahawks quarterback's comments about why they're abstaining from sex that are grabbing headlines.

According to Russell, the couple made the decision when he joined her on tour. "She was in the dressing room getting ready to go before she went on stage, and she was sitting there, and God spoke to me and said, 'I need you to lead her,'" Russell said. "And I was like, 'Really?' And he was like, 'No, I want you to lead her.' So I told her, 'What would you do if we took all of that extra stuff off the table and just did it Jesus's way?'" Russell also touched on the challenges of abstaining, joking, "I ain't going to lie to you all now. I need you all to pray for us. I know you've seen her on the screen. If there's a 10, she's a 15."

Ciara and Russell went public with their romance at the White House in April, making a stunning debut at a state dinner. The couple got even cuter when they hit the BET Awards red carpet in late June. Until now, though, Russell and Ciara have remained private about their budding relationship.
