Russell Wilson is a proud stepdad.

Even before tying the knot with Ciara last month, 27-year-old Wilson has bonded with the singer’s 2-year-old son, Future Zahir. And, now, the NFL star is proud to take on a new role with the toddler.

“She has a little man, he’s awesome and cute as can be. A little baby Future. Such a special, special kid. I think about him, and being a stepdad. I’m a stepdad now,” the Seattle Seahawks player told Maria Shriver on her Architects for Change web series.

Ciara seems to be having the best summer yet!

The R&B sensation married Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson at a romantic castle in England earlier this month, and now, the newlywed is making a splash with her baby, Future Zahir, 2. The star, 30, posted a video on her Instagram Friday, which showed a very adventurous baby Future giggling and swimming around in a pool.

She captioned the video, “Today Juicy Man wanted to swim without help:) … So sweet! My Angel Baby.”

“Woah!” Ciara cheers on her toddler in the video. “Swim to mommy, swim to mommy!”

When Ciara‘s engagement to Future ended, the singer focused on her son and came out stronger in the end.

“That wasn’t necessarily part of my vision,” she tells Essence in its latest cover story. “But the moment I realized I was going to be a single mother, I had to reflect and reorganize my thoughts.”

The star “decided to trust that God had a plan” for her and subsequently “put all my love and focus on my son,” she says of life with Future Zahir, 2 next month. “And he’s made me become even more fearless.”

Ciara Says Son Future Is ‘Very Expressive for His Age’

02/18/2016 at 10:00 AM ET

Ciara may have sizzled in a barely-there Alexandre Vauthier haute couture gown on the Grammys red carpet Monday, but getting ready for big events takes time.

Luckily, the singer can count on some cute company during the process.

“I always love listening to music and then my son is also probably running around somewhere too, so it’s very eventful while I’m getting ready,” she told PEOPLE at the Primary Wave 10th Annual Pre-Grammy Party sponsored by Candy Crush Jelly Saga.

Ciara, 30, is mother to son Future Zahir, 20 months. While Mom may play games on her phone like Candy Crush Jelly Saga, her baby boy is a little too young for them — but that doesn’t mean he’s bored.

“Right now I let him focus more on the educational, fun things. He actually really loves learning,” she shares.

Ciara on Having Another Baby: I ‘Definitely’ Want More Kids

09/15/2015 at 09:30 AM ET

She may have named her latest album, Jackie, after her mother, but Ciara also loves boasting about her sweet baby boy.

“He is awesome! He is 15 months going on 3 years old,” the singer told PEOPLE of her son, Future Zahir, while attending the Essence Street Style Awards on Sunday.

As Future switches from baby babble to his first words, the Grammy winner admits she’s had to watch what she says while around her son.

“He’s like a parrot now, he’s in the parrot stage so he [copies] everything you say — which you have to be careful with!” she says.

“The other day we were saying, ‘Thank you, Jesus’ and I would say, ‘Say, thank you!’ and he would say, ‘Tank you!’ I’d say, ‘Je-sus’ and he’d say, ‘Yee-yus.’ It is so sweet!”

Ciara Responds to Ex-Fiancé’s Concerns About Their Son Spending Time with Russell Wilson

08/19/2015 at 09:00 PM ET

Ciara has spoken out after her ex-fiancé raised concerns about their 15-month-old son Future Zahir spending time with her new boyfriend, NFL star Russell Wilson.

The singer is making no apologies for having her baby boy bond with the new man in her life.

“Wouldn’t you want someone to love on your child, or love on the child that you’re speaking about?” the 29-year-old said Wednesday on CBS This Morning.

The singer/songwriter, who featured her son in her “I Got You” video last May, says her son is her top priority — and she’s primarily concerned about how he will respond to the comments.

“People are going to talk about me. I was built for this, this is what I’m supposed to be doing,” she explains. “But when it comes to your child, it’s something I don’t take lightly. At the end of the day, my son will be the one that’s affected the most out of this. I think people have to think about that versus just shouting out things.”
