Russell Wilson didn’t let Ciara’s birthday week pass without an epic surprise!
On Wednesday night, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback made a secret trip to Los Angeles, where his wife was opening Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic World Tour at the Staples Center. Unbeknownst to her, he snuck backstage, bringing a massive bouquet of red roses with him.
As Russell made his way towards the stage wing, the “Level Up” singer spotted her hubby and gasped. “Oh my god! Hi!” she squealed, leaping into his waiting arms. The NFL star held her as she wrapped herself around him, emotionally overcome by the birthday gesture.
“When bae surprises you after you get off the stage.. you jump on him,” Ciara captioned an Instagram video of the heartwarming moment. “#Birthday Lovin is ALL I wanted, and he gave it to me.”
Russell followed up his romantic move with a touching Instagram tribute to the musician, who turned 33 on Thursday.
“My Love… every day you bring love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and so much faith to our family, and today is just another special day that we get to celebrate having you in our lives,” he wrote alongside a photo with children: 4-year-old Future Zahir (who Ciara welcomed with ex Future) and 18-month-old Sienna Princess.
“Happy Birthday Baby,” he continued. “You just keep getting younger. I Love You.”
