Ciara, Russell Wilson


There's no raining on Ciara and Russell Wilson's parade.

On Saturday, Ciara's ex Future dropped a new mixtape, Purple Reign. As an unexpected result, Future's fans commented on dozens of Ciara and Wilson's photos using a "purple rain" emoji. On Sunday, the Carolina Panthers beat the Seattle Seahawks 31-24 in a NFC divisional playoff football game at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. Ciara was there to support Wilson, but the opposing team tried to shake his confidence by playing Future songs in heavy rotation.

It could have been a bad day for the couple—but it wasn't.

In spite of the negativity that directed at their relationship, the couple kept their cool and even found the humor in the situation. "Ciara and Russell actually thought all of the Purple Reign comments and emojis were funny. It really didn't faze the two of them at all," a source tells E! News. "Ciara is in the best place in her life now and has no energy or focus on Future. Her only focus is on baby Future and Russell. She knows fans will be fans and stuff like that is expected."

To be fair, Future wasn't leading the charge with the flurry of emojis. And luckily, his former fiancée isn't one to retaliate. "She has always thought Future was an extremely talented artist," the source says. "She won't knock him ever on his craft because she is way too mature for that."

Indeed. Rather than respond to her haters, the 30-year-old "Dance Like We're Making Love" singer took to Instagram to sing the 27-year-old quarterback's praises. "My Love. I am So Proud Of You! What A Phenomenal Season It's Been. You Never Cease To Amaze Me With Your Faith, Will, Integrity, Resilience, and Courage. You Always Find A Way To Make Things Happen When It Seems Absolutely Impossible! Constantly Inspiring Me and Others Around," she wrote in the caption. "A Rare Breed You Are. My Champ. The Best Is Yet To Come. I Love You. #GoHawks #3." Before Wilson and his team lost, Ciara also took a few selfies with her son during Sunday's game. "So Many Reasons To Smile. Grateful," the singer wrote on Instagram. "God Is So Good."

"Things with Russell and Ciara are amazing," a source says of the two, who began dating last April. "It was so cute having baby Future see Russell play football this season. Russell loves baby Future and it means the world to Ciara! Baby Future is a little Seahawks fan in the making!"
