Russel Wilson gets that when you love a woman, you have to love all of her, and the former Super Bowl MVP has no problem professing his love for his wife Ciara and her first born son Zahir Wilburn, 4. That she shares with Atlanta rap superstar Future Hendrix.
Russ sat down with Buzzfeed, and shared some advice to parents on what it takes to make a blended family work.
“In terms of tips, I mean, you know being there for your kids, you know, tucking them down, putting them to bed, going to as many things as you can.”
He also talked a little bit about what this experience has taught him about love.
“And I think ultimately—you know the thing that I’ve learned the most and I think this is real, the thing that I’ve learned the most is that being a stepdad and then also having our little daughter as well, being a stepdad, you really find out what love’s like. It’s interesting. It’s easy to love somebody that’s blood and everything else, but when you can love somebody just like it’s your own child and everything else, that’s what real love is like.”
