Christian Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson insists he has no regrets after publicly announcing his decision to follow God and refrain from sexual intercourse with his singer girlfriend Ciara Harris.
Wilson, 26, took to the stage at The Rock Church in San Diego, California on July 5 where he revealed that God told him to lead Ciara in abstaining from sexual activity until marriage. The announcement was received with some harsh criticism, like CBS Chicago sports radio host Dan Bernstein from the show “Boers & Bernstein” implying that Wilson could be a homosexual or ESPN journalist Bomani Jones questioning the QB’s honesty.
After KIRO radio personality Rachel Belle questioned Wilson about his endorsement deal with Austrian bread company Eat The Ball Tuesday, she asked if he regretted sharing so much of his personal life with the world.
“Do you regret the comments that you made when you did that video interview talking about the fact that you and Ciara have chosen not to have sex,” Belle questioned Wilson at an Eat The Ball event. “That’s something that was in the news nationally, internationally. Is that something you wish you never brought up?”
Even though Wilson seemed confused that the topic of his interview changed from speaking about his sponsor to his personal life, he stood by his public proclamation.
“Well, it went from Eat the Ball to this, I don’t know how that happened,” Wilson told Belle. “But, no, I don’t. I don’t have any regret, no. I’m a blessed man, I’m very, very grateful.”
Belle also asked Wilson if he had any reaction to Ciara’s former fiance, the rapper known as Future, speaking out against the NFL player publicly pushing the stroller of the recording artist’s 1-year-old son whom he shares with the singer. In a radio interview with Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” Future said “of course I wouldn’t want anyone to push my son — that’s like the number one rule.”
After Belle prompted Wilson to respond to the rapper, the football player said, “Uh, I don’t pay attention to all that.”
