Ciara and her husband, Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson, have had a whirlwind of a year.
Last offseason the pair made a big change when they requested and were granted a trade from the Seattle Seahawks to the Denver Broncos. A lot of optimism surrounded the move, but ultimately things didn’t go as planned.
Not only did Wilson have one of his worst career years ever, but there are now very serious questions about what sort of football player he can be going forward.
Ciara, for her part, attempted to keep his spirits up as best as she could. Between her very public intimate messages to him and constant words of support, she was a trooper through and through.
For what it’s worth, it appears as though her efforts were largely successful. Wilson seems to be in a much better place mentally nowadays, as evidenced by a dance video Ciara shared to social media featuring him this week.

Fans loved it.
“Ladies when your partner in this life GETS YOU! Understands your look on life and still say ‘you don’t need me but I need you’.. and Vice versa!! Ciara making this song is super dope to be married.. but Russ understanding what she meant to teach their daughter is doper,” one person wrote.
“How could you hate on this love?!” another person added.
“A confident husband is a blessing,” a third fan agreed.
Obviously Ciara and Wilson are permanent fixtures in the headlines at this point. Between their Oscars outfits causing a stir, wild beach day video going viral and intimate Valentine’s Day celebration, it has been one thing after another.
This is just par for the course.
The real question is what the future holds for them. A lot of Wilson’s identity, for better or worse, is still tied up in him being a top-tier NFL player.
Last year he wasn’t one.
The Broncos went out and acquired head coach Sean Payton in an effort to remedy the terrible play-calling and decision-making that plagued them during the Nathaniel Hackett Era.

Hopefully that will help to some degree.
But will it help enough to justify all the draft capital and financial resources they invested in their starting quarterback? That remains unclear.
One way or another, Wilson will try his best to return to form next season. And no matter what, Ciara will be by his side every step of the way.
