A happy Mother’s Day wish from Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson to his wife Ciara did not go over well with fans of rapper Future, the father of Ciara’s first child.
In an Instagram post, Wilson wrote, "Nothing better than spending time with you. You are an amazing mom & I'm so grateful I get to spend the rest of my life with you & raising our kids. I love you! #HappyMothersDay Weekend my love. @Ciara."
Ciara gave birth to Wilson’s biological daughter, Sienna Princess Wilson, late last month. The baby girl is the singer’s second child. In 2014, she had a son fathered by Future, her ex-fiancé.
Some commentors on Wilsons’s post took exception to him characterizing both children as “our kids.” Plenty of others, though, came to his defense.
"Russ, go worry about your done career. The man's child can never be yours," one person commented, via the New York Daily News.
Retorted another Instagramer, “It's also his child, as he raises him, and this is more important than being a sperm donor," one fan wrote. "I was also raised by non-biological father and I am his daughter and he is my real father, period."
Added another Wilson advocate, “If he had said our child people would be jumping on him for excluding baby Future. He just can't win. Smh.”
