Cue the awws!
Over the weekend, Russell Wilson set the ultimate #FiancéGoals when he gave his lady, Ciara, a shout out during his commencement speech at the University of Wisconsin. Too cute!

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback opened up his address by dishing out some truths he's learned so far in his career. First Wilson admitted that, despite having a professional singer as a fiancée and his passion for belting a tune, he CANNOT sing. He shared:
"I love singing. Michael Jackson, I'm Michael Jackson's Tito. I'm Janet Jackson's long lost brother. My moonwalk cuts the rug. Dancing machine, smooth criminal, this guy. But no matter how badly I want to be a pop star, it would not matter how much self-confidence I had or have or how many hours I spend at the studio. Trust me on this. I cannot sing. So the question I asked when life told me no was: 'What am I capable of?' Once you know the answer, don't be afraid to let everyone else know it too."
That's deep stuff, Russell! Still it appears that the 27-year-old is capable in seeing a good thing when he has it, as he added:
"If you're dating a woman that's way out of your league, ask her to marry you."
LOVES it! In case you forgot, the NFL star asked the Ride singer to marry him back in March.
Although everything is going swell for the American athlete, we can only imagine that he wishes his father was alive to be apart of his success. On his father's death, Russell relayed:
"I got drafted to play baseball on June 8, 2010. And the next night, my dad passed away. I miss my dad every single day. People have asked me, if I had five more minutes with him, what would I say to him? But I wouldn't say anything at all. I would just hug him. That's what I would do."
Nonetheless, we couldn't be happier for Russell and Ciara as they continue to build their life together.
