In 2015 Ciara was a popular R&B artist and single mother. Russell Wilson was a quarterback with the NFL Seakhawks. Both were looking for love. They met for the first time at a Wisconsin Badgers basketball game and went out for dinner. A year later, they married in an English castle, announcing, “We are the Wilsons!”
Eight years later, they have a growing family, Ciara’s 9-year-old son Future from a previous relationship, the couple’s 6-year-old daughter Sienna and another son, 3-year-old Win. Ciara is currently expecting the couple’s third child. They reside in the Denver area in a $25 million mansion featuring an indoor basketball court, nine-car garage, and indoor pool. It is also considered the most expensive home sold in the region’s real estate history.
With a reported combined net worth of $185 million, the Wilsons’ independent and collective successes make them a certified power couple.
Wilson has a reported net worth of $165 million. He was drafted into the NFL in 2012 after playing college football. As a quarterback with the Seattle Seahawks, Wilson earned nine Pro Bowl nods. In 2019, Wilson signed a $140 million contract for four years. The deal included a $70 million guaranteed and a $65 million signing bonus and is considered one of the greatest contracts in NFL history.
In 2022, Wilson signed a five-year deal with the Denver Broncos for $245 million, becoming one of the highest-paid players in the NFL.
Wilson also has sponsorships with brands including Bose, Nike, Wheels Up, Mercedes-Benz, Wilson Sporting Goods, and Amazon.
In December, Ciara is set to star in the movie musical “The Color Purple” as Nettie Harris.
But many years ago, she was dubbed “The First Lady of Crunk.” Ciara burst on the scene in the mid-2000s. She’s recorded seven studio albums and two have gone platinum. Singles such as “Goodies,” “1,2 Step” and “Promise” topped the charts, and Ciara has been nominated for five Grammy Awards. In collaboration with Missy Elliott, Ciara won a Grammy Award for Best Short Form Music Video.
Not only are the Wilsons successful independently, but they are also working hard on their joint business endeavors. Collaborating with businesswoman Christine Day, the couple established The House of LR&C. The fashion house oversees Lita by Ciara, Human Nation and Good Man Brand.
The couple also joined the ownership group of Major League Soccer’s Seattle Sounders FC in 2019. And that’s not all. The Wilsons are part of the Portland Diamond Project, an investment group hoping to bring a Major League Baseball franchise to Portland.
Since 2021, their production company, Why Not You Productions, has been affiliated with Amazon Studios and has produced “God. Family. Football.” Finally, the couple co-wrote a children’s book, “Why Not You?”
