The NFL star was raving about his biggest inspirations and — after talking about his faith and his family — the football player confessed that his new wife and his two-year-old stepson, Future Jr., have really had a huge impact on his life!
The athlete gushed:
"She's been an inspiration since day one—since moment one. And her little one, too, just watching him. I was saying to somebody the other day being a stepfather is one of the most loving things you can do. You really learn how to love love, especially when it's not yours."
The 27-year-old continued:
"You realize that every kid matters in this world. Every person matters, every child matters, every heart matters, every soul matters, every mind matters.. That's why we're here honestly, for situations like that."
Watch the tender moment in his Facebook Live video (below)! The sweet stuff starts around 14:14!
And after all the heartwarming speeches, the Seattle Times reported that Russell's event raised $300K for his foundation, which included $100K of his own money!
