In a recent interview at The Rock church in San Diego, California, Wilson, NFL player for the Seattle Seahawks, opened up about his relationship with R&B singer Ciara. 

“She was on tour; she was traveling, and I was looking at her in the mirror, I was sitting in the dressing room, she was getting ready to go…and she was sitting there, and God spoke to me and said, ‘I need you to lead her,’” Wilson recalled. “And I was like, ‘Really, right now?’…And he goes, ‘No, I want you and need you to lead her.’ So I told her right then and there, ‘What would you do if we took all of that extra stuff off the table and just did it Jesus’ way?’…And she was relieved.”

Just to clarify, Wilson continued, “We’re talking about sex.”

He also admitted that it was not going to be easy — since he considers his girlfriend a “15 out of 10.” 

“I ain’t gonna lie to y’all now, I need y’all to pray for us,” he joked to the congregation. 

Besides the fact that such a public couple is making such a counter-cultural move in a sex-obsessed culture, it’s exciting to me that mainstream publications took notice, too. This story has been covered by TMZ, People Magazine, and US Magazine
