Ciara & Russell Wilson Give Us The Secret Sauce To Leveling Up Your Marriage

Hard work and intentionality make for a really dope union.


Ciara and Russell Wilson have a love as strong as Megan Thee Stallion's knees, and recently, the couple spilled all the tea on how they keep their marriage poppin' like the 4th of July all damn year.

The couple, who initially made their relationship public in 2015 and married only a year later, is constantly serving up some of the most adorable moments the internet has ever seen and it's clear that for these two, the honeymoon is never-ending. CiCi recently opened up to PureWow about their holy matrimony and revealed that their journey is one that has required intentionality and hard work. She explained:

"We make sure to make an effort to balance and make time for our marriage and our relationship."

Ciara revealed that the key to her and her husband's balancing act has been consistently making time for one another despite their very busy schedules. Surprisingly, the secret to spicing up your marriage can be as simple as scheduling a date night (or week):

"The way that we really balance things is that we commit to date night and we make a conscious effort to do that. Literally, we don't miss it. If I travel for longer than a week, we make sure that right when I get back, date night happens and sometimes we end up doing two date nights in a week because we just missed out on one prior."

The "Level Up" singer and her husband celebrated their 3-year wedding anniversary four months ago in Fiji and say that although sometimes their time together is limited, they make sure to spend it wisely. The mother-of-two explained:

"Yes, we were in Fiji. I was thinking about South Africa. We went to South Africa the year before, which was our official honeymoon because we didn't get to do a proper one after we got married, but we did go to Fiji… and that was really fun! It was a short, quick trip for us, but really good."

When it comes to family planning, Russell Wilson is all over it and uses every opportunity he has to slip in a request for a fifth addition to their family of four. While in the past, Ciara has been bashful about her husband's suggestions, she recently told Extra that she could easily see their family grow into a family of 8.

"If you ask [Russell], we're talking eight babies. We'll just go one day at a time, but I definitely do look forward to having more kids … We got time for that."

I’ve never been a foundation girl. Truthfully, I typically stay away from it because it can break out my skin, and it’s tough to find a shade that fits. I have yellow undertones with a sprinkle of hyperpigmentation from previous acne struggles. Foundations with yellow undertones don’t seem to have it all the way together yet. In my experience, the foundations always give banana-hued vibes. I usually purchase two foundations and mix to find my perfect shade, which isn’t always ideal for my wallet.
