(Seychelles News Agency) - The Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson popped the big question to Grammy-award-winning singer Ciara while visiting the Seychelles islands. The answer: Yes! The couple have been posting news of their engagement on social media sites, Twitter and Instagram since Friday.
Celebrity news magazine ‘PEOPLE’ reported being told exclusively by Ciara’s representative that Wilson had planned a surprise holiday to the Seychelles, more precisely at the North Island Resort, which is where he proposed to Ciara.
North Island is a popular honeymoon destination among the rich and famous. Celebrities who have honeymooned at the luxury resort include the royal couple Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.
Pictures posted by the couple on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook show Wilson taking to his knees on a beach setting, against the backdrop of the setting sun to propose marriage to his girlfriend. The pair have been dating since early 2015.
