Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and singer Ciara Harris have announced their engagement. The couple have been dating for nearly one year and have made their choice to remain abstinent until marriage public.
Both Harris and Wilson tweeted a video of the singer showing off her new ring. Harris wrote, “I feel complete. God Is Good. Grateful For You @DangRussWilson. You Are Heaven Sent. I'm Looking Forward To Spending Forever With You."
Last year, Wilson spoke with Pastor Miles McPherson at The Rock Church about his relationship with Harris. The Christian Post reports Wilson presented Harris with the idea to remain abstinent after feeling a call from God.
Wilson said, "I asked her 'what would you do if we took all that other stuff off the table and did it Jesus' way, no sex? 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. We're not going to be perfect, by any means."
He continued, "He's anointed both of us and He's calling for us to do something special.”
Last month, Harris said that not having sex strengthened their relationship.
"He's such an awesome guy and the cool thing is that every day, we're growing with each other,” she said. “We get to have really healthy conversations and focus on each other as people. That is very important to me and him. It's very valuable."
