Russell Wilson : Seahawks QB 'his date Ciara' listed as correspondents dinner guests

Russell Wilson reportedly has found himself a date to Saturday’s White House Corespondents’ Dinner, and you may have heard of her.

The “I Bet” crooner is reportedly dating Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, according to E! Online, which added that the relationship is “still very new,” but “going great so far.”

“It’s still at the beginning stages and it’s very fresh,” a source told the site. “She thinks he is a complete gentleman and has really enjoyed hanging out with him these past few weeks. It’s constant laughter and fun with them.”

Rumors first sparked that Ciara and the NFL hottie were dating when she was spotted sitting next to him at a Seattle Mariners game last weekend. Russell also reportedly listed Ciara as his date to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, which will be held this Saturday.

The 29-year-old singer and Russell both appear to be giving new love a shot after ending things with their significant others last year. Russell filed for divorce from his wife Ashton in April 2014 after two years of marriage, and Ciara split with her former fiancé Future last December. Ciara and Future have one child together, 11-month-old old Future Jr.

Ciara previously revealed that her song, “‘I Bet’ was inspired by her own life,” adding, “it was one of those topics everyone could relate to.” In it she sings, “I bet you start loving me/ As soon as I start loving someone else/Somebody better than you/I bet you start needing me/ As soon as you see me with someone else/ Somebody other than you.”

It’ll be interesting to see if Ciara predicted the future on this one.
