Indeed, in August 2014 Ciara broke up with Future, and there were rumors that he had cheated on her. But despite that heartbreak, the singer was able to bounce back and build a relationship with Wilson, eventually leading to their engagement in March 2016. It was certainly a whirlwind romance. Ahead of their wedding, though, the pair made an interesting decision together.

Born in November 1988, Wilson was a native of Cincinnati, Ohio, before his family packed their bags for Richmond, Virginia. There, the future-NFL star grew up alongside his two siblings, Anna and Harrison IV. During this period, he was introduced to football by his brother and his dad, Harrison III.

Wilson’s dad was in fact a former college football player and had represented Dartmouth College some years before. After that, in 1980, he actually made the cut for the San Diego Chargers pre-season team and played as a wide receiver. Years later, his son would follow in his footsteps.
