Grammy award-winning singer Ciara and Super Bowl-winning quarterback Russell Wilson are engaged to be married, the NFL star announced on Instagram.

“She said Yes!!! Since Day 1 I knew you were the one. No Greater feeling… #TrueLove @Ciara,” Wilson said.

In a picture posted Friday to the singer’s Twitter account, Wilson took a knee while the couple was vacationing in a tropical locale. People magazine reported Ciara and Wilson were in the Seychelles Islands.

“I feel complete,” she wrote.

Wilson, 27, is one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL, last year signing a four-year contract extension worth a reported $87.6 million. He guided the Seattle Seahawks to a Super Bowl championship in 2014 but, with his team on the verge of a game-winning touchdown, threw a last-minute interception in 2015 in the championship contest.

He has been married once before to his high school sweetheart.

Ciara, 30, has released six studio albums — five of which hit the top 10 on the U.S. R&B charts. She has been nominated for five Grammys, winning one for best short-form video. She has one son with her former fiance, rapper Future.

Ciara and Wilson have been dating since early 2015. The couple has been very public about their decision to abstain from premarital sex.

Neither announced a wedding date.
