Ciara found the ultimate love in Russell Wilson after a bad break-up with rapper Future. Not only did Wilson come into her life and uplift her, but he’s also become a father figure to her son Future Jr. Russell is very hands-on with their kids and seems to be an incredible father despite some backlash from people who think he is trying to replace Future Jr.’s biological dad.
Back in 2020, The Wilsons got some heat from fans who did not like that Russell called himself “daddy” in a birthday post for their eldest son. In the video he shared of himself and Future swimming, Russell thanked the boy for being his best friend and daily inspiration. “I thank Jesus every day for who you are & being able to lead & guide you.” He ended the touching post with “Happy 6th Birthday Future! Daddy loves you! 🙏🏾💪🏾❤️.” In the comments, people fully supported him stepping up and being a father figure to the boy. “I love this. Such a blessing to have a husband that treats your child in a respectful manner as he would treat his own.” Others knew the post was likely to upset Future Sr., saying, “Future punching the air 😂😂😂😂.”
Whatever Russell and Ciara are doing, they are doing it wonderfully as young Future has already displayed a number of talents. His mother, Ciara, is known as one of the top dancers in the business, and her son has taken after her a bit. She frequently shares videos of them dancing together, including one viral post from December of 2021. In the clip, you see her son sitting on the floor rapping to the camera while mommy danced. He then joined her in a second clip where they danced in green pajamas and made silly faces.
Future also takes from his parents’ musical talents as well. Mom posted a video praising the young man for his impressive piano skills. “He’s a natural. He learned two hand after one week of being taught,” Ciara wrote in her caption. “Proud, mommy. Gods Child.” He played a riff of Cory Asbury’s “Reckless Love.” Russell commented on the post, saying, “Our baby boy is growing! #GodisGood!”
While he got the entertainment genes from his mom and biological father, bonus dad Russell is teaching young Future about sports as well. He joined the Seattle Seahawks for training back in 2015 and has been a mainstay on the fields watching Russ do his thing. In 2019, ESPN shared a video of Future running drills with the team and tossing the football around. A Russell and Ciara fanpage also shared some videos of Future throwing the ball with Russell before a game. “Future catches great and can throw a spiral already!!! Great coaching, dad!!!🙌🙌👏👏” said one fan.
Russell called out the NFL in a post this week, asking them to watch out for his boy. “Post-workout work with the young fellas! Future & Kingston young legends. Watch out @NFL.” In the clip, you can see him playing catch with Russ and some friends. The @NFLonPrime page responded, “First pick in the 2032 NFL Draft 👏” In addition to football, Future has also been seen playing some golf. Russell has been seen giving the young man golf lessons back in February of 2020. “That lil boy gone be somebody special. papa Russ plays a big role in his life 🙏🏽❤️ that’s wsp,” said a fan. Do you think Future will follow his mom into show business or Russell into sports?
