Ciara and Russell Wilson are one of Hollywood’s and sports’ most influential couples. While the singer is known as one of the most popular R&B artists, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback has risen to become one of America’s most popular athletes.
He is also one of the highest-paid NFL players, having signed a $140 million contract with the Seattle Seahawks.
Wilson will remain with the Seahawks through the 2023 season thanks to a four-year agreement negotiated in 2019. The extended contract also includes a $65 million signing bonus, making him the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL.
The deal has boosted his self-made fortune, which has already reached an astonishing $135 million. Wilson put his earnings to great use by acquiring a beachfront property on Seattle’s outskirts with his wife Ciara Wilson.
The property is close to the Seahawks’ practice facility in Renton, Washington.
Certainly, the professional athlete has outstanding real estate taste.
Seattle Mansion worth $6.7 Million
The Seattle Seahawks quarterback purchased a stunning $6.7 million home on Shoreland Drive in Bellevue’s Meydenbauer Bay neighborhood in 2015.
The Puget Sound Business Journal revealed that the residence belonged to former Microsoft manager Harish Naidu and his wife Shalini Naidu.
Built in 2008, the property sits on 6.67 acres with 84 feet of stunning high-bank shoreline. The two-story bungalow is 10,210-square-feet and includes seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
The master bedroom has a glass turret that provides a 180-degree perspective of everything while keeping the outside world out. The custom-made kitchen has a large center island, a walk-in pantry, wood cabinets, and exquisite chandeliers.
A stunning circular wood stairway with elaborately made wrought-iron railing leads to the second story and provides breathtaking views of the lake from every corner of the house.
Some of the best features include the soaring ceilings, Mediterranean-style amenities, multiple skylights providing natural daylight throughout, and five fireplaces.
It also has a media room separated from the rest of the house by giant Tibetan doors, a gym, and an outdoor private port for boating.
Above all, the property includes a football field and a wine cellar that can hold up to 2,000 bottles.
Wilson and Ciara’s Relationship
Ciara initially met Wilson in March 2015, after splitting from her then-fiancé, Future. The two also share a son, Future Jr. who was just 10 months old at the time.
They started off as friends. Soon after, the friendship turned into a relationship and eventually grew into an unbreakable bond. The beautiful couple made their relationship official in April 2015.
They also expressed their decision to forgo intimacy and wait till marriage to complete their love.
Wilson eventually popped the question to his lady love in March 2016, making their commitment permanent.
They married at a ceremony at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England, just a few months later, in July of the same year.
Their family grew bigger when Ciara and the NFL athlete announced the pregnancy news in October 2016. The pair welcomed their daughter, Sienna Princess Wilson in April 2017.
Another splendid news for the couple came in early 2020 as Ciara and Wilson confirmed they were having their second child, the singer’s third, together.
They welcomed a baby boy, Win Harrison, on July 23, 2021. He shares his middle name with his late grandfather and Wilson’s father, Harrison Wilson, III.
The blended family of five has been living in the Seattle mansion and also spent their quarantine days together during the pandemic.
