Future better get on board with Ciara and Russell Wilson‘s relationship, because it’s happening, no matter how much shade he throws.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson covers the September issue of Rolling Stone, and he looks like he means business. Inside he gushes over his relationship with Ciara, revealing that it was God who brought the two stars together.

“I knew God had brought me into her life to bless her and for her to bless me and to bless so many people with the impact that she has and I have,” Wilson explains in the article. “He has anointed both of us—he’s calling for us to do something miraculous and special.”

Wilson then quotes the book of Romans: “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”

One of their first interactions went as follows:

“She was on tour,” Wilson said, “and I was looking at her in the mirror 15 minutes before she went onstage. God said, ‘I need you to lead her.’ I was like, ‘Really? Right now?’” And at that moment he asked if she would be OK with taking “that extra stuff off the table.”

Ciara joined in on the mushiness, before sharing her man’s cover photo on Instagram.

“The thing about Russell is he’s real,” Ciara explains to Rolling Stone about that incident. “And that was a moment that got real real.”

She adds, “We share similar views on pretty much everything. It’s just super organic.”

It just “feels right,” is the sentiment they both shared, Russell adding:

“We connect so well, and we have the same vision,” he echoes Ciara’s words when asked about becoming a part of the hip-hop world. “It’s a perfect fit, you know? Is it weird? No. It feels right.”

Apparently, Russell is just like his late dad, Harrison, who died in 2010 “from complications of diabetes.” His older brother explains:

My brother’s known for his clichés,” says Harry. “But that’s who my dad was too. My dad was like an old sitcom: There’s always a lesson at the end of it, you know? Like a Fresh Prince episode.”
