Ciara Attends White House State Dinner With Her ‘Baby’ Russell Wilson [VIDEO]
Ciara and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson looked adorably chic at the White House State Dinner on Tuesday night (April 28). Their attendance at the prestigious event adds to the growing rumors that the two are an item.
Dressed in a slim-fitting rose gold silk gown, Ciara was all smiles next to her reported new beau Russell while they posed for pictures at the White House. The new couple looked poised in front of cameras, and the Washington Post reports that they looked a little confused as to where they needed to stand for the photos. You can see footage of Ciara and Russell -- her "baby" as the publication noted she called him during photos -- below.
News about this high-profile date was reported last week after buzz started regarding the singer and pro football player's budding relationship. The date occurred only three days after Russell was at the White House Correspondents' dinner, an event he took his grandmother to instead of the R&B songstress.
On April 19, Ciara and Russell were spotted at baseball game between the Texas Rangers and Seattle Mariners. The "I Bet" singer and athlete were then seen grabbing a snack at Pike Place Market in Seattle. Considering their respective celebrity status, the two have been trying to keep things quiet and low-key -- at least they're trying.
When Entertainment Tonight chatted with Russell about his love life, he tried his best to blow off the question and explained that he keeps his relationships private. And when the interviewer continued and asked if the woman's name started with the letter "C," he just laughed it off.
Meanwhile, Ciara has been attempting to do the same thing when E! caught up with her. When asked about Russell and the Seahawks, her eyes started to light up and she got very giggly. Although she may have been glowing, Ciara, whose sixth album, Jackie, arrives May 4, kept her cool and showed her support for the pro football team.
