He recently told E! News ahead of Nickelodeon’s 2016 Kids’ Choice Sports Awards (which he’s hosting on Sunday, July 17):
“To share a special moment and a lifetime with somebody that you truly love and really cares about you is amazing. That’s what everybody is searching for. I found that. I was fortunate and blessed to find that and the best part was watching her walk down the aisle.
Just to see her face and the long train she had. And then Earth, Wind and Fire took the night away.”
Though the couple just wed, they already have kids on their mind, Russell revealed.
“Down the road, I would obviously [want kids]. She does too and hopefully, god willing, as long as they’re healthy, that’s what we pray for and whether it’s a boy or girl, who knows but we’ve got some time for that. She’s making her music right now and I’m playing my sports and hosting shows so we’re pretty busy.”

Ciara and Wilson wed on July 6, 2016 at Peckforton Castle in front of approximately 100 close guests. She wore a custom Roberto Cavalli Couture by Peter Dundas gown while her son Future sported a custom suit from Giorgio Armani.
The couple infamously revealed after they began dating last year that they were abstaining from sex until marriage. Ciara admitted it was difficult to remain celibate Wilson before their wedding, saying, “You go one day at a time, and keep [the romance] going with each other. It’s alright.”
