Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson might need a hand after his new baby boy is born, because the last time his pop singer wife Ciara gave birth, she squeezed his hand so hard it almost broke.
Russell Wilson and Ciara share two children, 6-year-old Future Zahir (Ciara’s son with rapper Future) and their 3-year-old daughter Sienna Princess Wilson. Ciara is also pregnant with a baby boy. In a recent interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with guest host Joel McHale, Wilson shared a funny story about Ciara almost crushing his throwing hand when she was giving birth to Sienna.

Last time, she grabbed my hand,” Wilson recalled. “She almost broke my hand. She was squeezing my right hand,” he added. “I said, ‘Baby, baby, baby, other hand, other hand.’ So, she grabbed my left. So, hopefully, she’ll know this, this time.”
Russell Wilson also spoke about balancing his football career with his family, especially with his new son on the way. “I’m trying to get as much relaxing time because I know I’m going to have to be doing baby duties here soon while trying to play football,” he said. “So, it’s going to be an interesting balance.”
Russell Wilson is very much looking forward to returning to the football field, however, he and many other prominent NFL players are concerned about the NFL’s lack of safety protocols for players amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Wilson is especially concerned since Ciara is pregnant, and he made his concerns known in a tweet criticizing the NFL for not addressing player safety. “I am concerned. My wife is pregnant. @NFL. Training camp is about to start… And there’s still No Clear Plan on Player Health & Family Safety. 🤷🏾,” said Wilson. “We want to play football but we also want to protect our loved ones. #WeWantToPlay.”
