Congrats are in order for Ciara and NFL player Russell Wilson. Wilson posted a very special video to Instagram, captioning the moment: "She said Yes!!! Since Day 1 I knew you were the one. No Greater feeling...". In the video, Ciara can be seen showing off a *huge* sparkly diamond, while saying "I'm so excited! God is good."

Ciara, 30, and Wilson, 27, started dating in April of 2015—and even vowed to remain celibate in their relationship until marriage. This will be the first marriage for Ciara (who was engaged to her daughter's father Future for 10 months until their split in 2014) and the second for Wilson (who was married to Ashton Meem from 2012 to 2014). 

Congrats to the happy couple!
