Russell Wilson is scheduled to join the Pittsburgh Steelers as their quarterback later today.

The 35-year-old ignited social media on Monday with a post on X, previously known as Twitter, that featured “Renegade” playing over videos of fans waving Terrible Towels. His wife, Ciara Wilson, shared it with a series of black and gold hearts.

Ciara is a star in her own right — a singer, songwriter, dancer, model, actress and more — gaining fame in 2004 with the popular single “Goodies” featuring Petey Pablo. Since then, she has had a number of successful singles, including “1, 2, Step” featuring Missy Elliot, “Oh” featuring Ludacris and the 2018 viral sensation “Level Up.”

Her collection of awards is quite extensive, encompassing a Grammy Award, two BET Awards, two MTV VMAs, a Billboard Woman in Music Woman of the Year Award, and multiple Soul Train Awards and Ascap Music Awards.

According to, her acting roles include the 2006 television movie “All You’ve Got,” “The Game” television series and most recently, as Nettie in the 2023 remake of the movie “The Color Purple.”

She has worked as a model for Wilhelmina Models and IMG Models, and has been a Global Brand Ambassador for Revlon cosmetics. She was also one of four models to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue in 2022.

In the business world, Ciara is the founder and CEO of Beauty Marks Entertainment, described as “a company at the forefront of the rapidly changing music industry.”

She and Wilson became part owners of the Seattle Sounders FC in Major League Soccer in 2019. Following the success of Wilson’s The Good Man Brand, the couple founded fashion house The House of LR&C with Christine Day (former CEO of lululemon athletica) in 2020, and own the TV, advertising and film production company Why Not You Productions, which is associated with Amazon Prime Video.

Ciara and Wilson started dating in 2015. They tied the knot in 2016 and welcomed daughter Sienna in 2017, son Win in 2020 and another daughter, Amora, in December 2023. Ciara also has a 9-year-old son named Future, whose father is rapper Future.
