Power couple alert!
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife Ciara were tapped to present. And they made sure they represented on the red carpet. They got fresh in all black everything and looked GREAT.
CiCi slayed the hell out of this cut-out high slit gown. Werk!
As they made their way down the carpet, they stopped to chop it up with Entertainment Tonight where they dropped some marriage gems after recently celebrating their 3rd year wedding anniversary.
"I think the most important thing is, first of all, just loving one another, you know? For love, you'll do anything and you take care of one another," Wilson reflected. "And also communication."
"There's always a lot of highs, and there are lows, and everything else, but communication is everything," he added. "And I think when you're able to do that and take care of your kids, it's a lot of fun."
The couple was tapped to present the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance to Rob Mendez, a high school football coach without arms or legs who led his team to the league championship game in his first year as head coach and inspired millions more with his determination and “who says I can’t” attitude.
Peep their ESPN interview below:
