Russell Wilson did a magnificent job during his first day of practice with the Yankees. The celebrity father had his daughter, Sienna, and stepson, Future Zahir, cheering for him on the sidelines.
Wilson recorded a cute video with his and Ciara’s kids that spoke of how much the family missed the matriarch of the family. “Mama, we miss you but we love you,” Russell told Ciara. “I know you’re wearing your Yankees hat right now,” he added. “I know you’re all over the world, but we love you.”
Love from the sidelines and worldwide went far as Russell Wilson delivered impressive batting skills on his first day. The NFL player hit six home runs, which quieted rumors of him practicing with the Yankees just for publicity.
“Some people always, for me, get confused on ‘is this just a stunt’ or whatever,” Wilson told media. “They don’t know me,” he added. “If you really know me, baseball’s been part of my blood. It’s been a part of who I am and where I’ve come from and what I’ve done. When you see me make plays on the football field, a lot of that’s a direct correlation to baseball.”
Will Russell Wilson also teach his daughter and stepson the wonders of baseball? Maybe so. We have to keep watching to see. Stay tuned for more celebrity dad news!
