Russell Wilson is still on cloud nine after his fairy-tale wedding to Ciara. Wilson tells PEOPLE exclusively.
â€œIâ€™ll tell you, the best part of the wedding was watching her walk down the aisle. I had so many [thoughts], but to see her gracefully walk down the aisle in that long train â€¦ and to realize I was going to spend the rest of my life with her gives me chills,â€Ever since the first day I met her, sheâ€™s always been, honestly, my best friend. Weâ€™ve been so close,â€ he says.
And while he doesnâ€™t have any children of his own just yet, Wilson is already a doting dad to Ciaraâ€™s 2-year-old son, Future Zahir .He said
â€œI think ultimately, the one thing I can say about being a step-dad and any person thatâ€™s a parent â€“ but especially when you come into a new situation â€“ the key is loving the child as your own,â€ Wilson says. â€œThatâ€™s the biggest thing.â€I want to have a bunch of kids â€“ me and Ci do,â€ he said, laughing. â€œI think that ever since the first day I ever met Ciara and Little Man, too, itâ€™s been really cool and really special.â€
Adds the star: â€œCiaraâ€™s such a great mom. She reads to him every night. I read to him too, and we just share so many special moments together. Thatâ€™s what family is all about. Ultimately, itâ€™s about giving back and loving as much as you can to your fullest. Thatâ€™s what youâ€™re able to do together.
