Russell loves Ciara, and the world loves the Wilsons. The first year of marriage, if anything, has made Russell Wilson fall even harder for his wife, Ciara. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback took to Instagram on Wednesday, October 25, to share a loving and true-to-his-heart message for the singer on her 32nd birthday.

“Hey, C! You know, a lot of people say that they’re your number one fan, but I’m actually your number one fan—without a doubt,” Wilson expressed in a video. “I just want to say you’re the best women I know, the best mom I know, the best wife I know, the best thing I could ever imagine.”

My Love… You are the best a man could ask for. I love you! @Ciara

From there, the doting husband continued to pile on the praise. “I thank God every day that he brought you into my life,” Wilson said to his wife. “There is so much I could say right now, but I just love you and I am grateful for you. There are a lot of people who love you, but I love you the most. Okay, we love you. Thanks, mama.”

The couple celebrated her special day with a private, sushi-making cooking class, which was followed by a romantic, candlelit dinner overlooking the sunset–all in the comfort of their own home. The tabletop was decorated with a “C” centerpiece and yes—champagne was served. “#AllINeedIsYouForMyBirthday,” Ciara wrote on Instagram.

The “1, 2 Step” hitmaker and her husband spent the day before her actual birthday giving back to the local community, opting to engage with kids and their families inside the Seattle Children’s hospital.

The power couple married last summer at Peckforton Castle, a historic 19th century venue in Cheshire, England, where they were joined by their fellow athletes and artists alike. Designer Peter Dundas, who was previously the creative director of Roberto Cavalli, crafted a custom gown for the bride.

The Wilsons now share a daughter named Sienna Princess. Wilson is also a doting stepdad to her 3-year-old son from a previous marriage, Future Jr. “Wherever you wanna go… I’ll take you,” Wilson wrote to the mom of two on Wednesday. “I Love you! @Ciara Happy Birthday Mama! #YouStoleMyHeart.”
