Russell Wilson buys gifts for Seahawks teams
Russell Wilson splashed out on lavish gifts for his American football team.
The 28-year-old sportsman – who is quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks – followed tradition by purchasing two first-class tickets to anywhere in the world for his teammates as well as curved-screen 4K Samsung TVs for his linemen.
A source told the New York Post’s Page Six column: "Every player, all the coaches, trainers, strength coach, equipment staff … Everyone in the Seahawks organisation. He has a lot to be grateful for. He really is one of the most generous and thoughtful guys on the planet. He even picks up doughnuts for the team at 5 a.m. on the way to practice."
Russell showed off the gifts on his Snapchat account as he clutched a handful of Alaska Airlines tickets.
Meanwhile, Russell has had a great 2016. He tied the knot with ‘Dance Like We’re Making Love’ hitmaker Ciara and the couple are also expecting their first child together.
Ciara – who already has two-year-old Future Zahir Wilburn with her ex-partner Future – and Russell have already settled on a name for their little bundle of joy.
She shared recently: "I do know [if it’s a boy or a girl]. I’m not telling, not yet, but I’m very excited. We’ve already done that [chosen a name] actually."
And Ciara has revealed Future "can’t wait" to be a big brother.
She added: "He rubs my belly and he says, ‘Hi baby. I love you, baby,’ … and then he puts my shirt down and says, ‘Bye, bye baby.’ So, that’s his own thing.
"He sees a baby walking, smaller than him and walking — it doesn’t matter, it’s a baby. So, he goes, ‘baby’ and he looks at me and he goes, ‘Mama, baby’ – and he tries to pull my sweatshirt up."
