Russell Wilson has ignored his critics and has no shame in gushing about his stepfather duties after she married singer Ciara, who has a child Baby Future, with rapper Future.

Wilson stopped by Maria Shriver’s Architect For Change show and gushed about being a stepfather to the child after he tied the knot with Ciara about a month ago.

“[Ciara] has a little man, he’s awesome and cute as can be. He’s a special kid. I’m a stepdad now. When I see this kid, he’s 2 years old, he’s so sweet and loving, always has a smile on his face. Being a stepfather, it’s about loving the child because the child can do something amazing in his life.”

Wilson got a bit of criticism in the early days of his and Ciara’s relationship after he was getting extra close with the child. The rapper, Future, even expressed his concern with Wilson being in the picture early. Still, Wilson has hinted that he and Ciara want more children together; but in the far future.

“Ciara is back in the studio working on new music. She has already written and recorded a couple of new songs. It is early in the process but 2017 is gearing up to be very exciting,” a source told E! News.

On top of that, Wilson, who is the quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, is gearing up for another season with the team.
