From the pictures and videos, it looks as though Wilson popped the question over a beach picnic at sunset. The two have been vacationing in Seychelles at the exclusive resort North Island.
“Following Paris Fashion Week, Russell surprised Ciara with a surprise holiday,” Ciara’s rep told People magazine. “She was shocked when they landed in the Seychelles at the exclusive resort North Island. The biggest surprise was that Russell proposed to his new fiancée at the romantic private ‘Honeymoon Beach’ located on North Island.”
Wilson and Ciara, who are abstaining from sex until marriage, first sparked dating rumors in early April of last year. They went public with the relationship later that month, with Wilson bringing Ciara as his date to a White House State Dinner.
Ciara was previously in a longterm relationship with rapper Future, with whom she has 2-year-old son Future Zahir Wilburn.
