After a romantic vacation that led to their engagement, Ciara and Russell Wilson were ready to celebrate some more.

On Saturday, the 30-year-old R&B singer brought the 27-year-old NFL star with her to Las Vegas, where she performed at the Cosmopolitan Hotel's Marquee dayclub season opening. The two were all smiles as they cuddled up and posed for photos inside.

Ciara wore a sleeveless black leather crop top, paired with a black and orange leather mini skirt and knee-high gladiator-style stiletto sandals. Oh yeah, and her massive diamond engagement ring that she first flashed to the world in an Instagram video posted earlier this month, which showed her and Wilson announcing their engagement.

The clip was shot during the couple's romantic beach vacation in the Seychelles. Over the past couple of weeks, the two have shared on their Instagram pages gorgeous photos and videos from their getaway.

"Bae All Life..." Ciara wrote alongside a recent pic, which shows the two cuddled up on what appears to be a lounge chair overlooking the ocean.

Bae All Life...????

Wilson took several pics of Ciara posing in swimsuits.

"My OffSeason Hobby: Photography. I'll take your photo any day baby," he wrote.

The two also appear in a cute video in which they agree "fiancé" sounds better than "girlfriend" or "boyfriend."

Ciara and Wilson have been together for about a year. She was previously engaged to rapper Future. The two broke up in 2014. They share a 1-year-old son, Future Zahir Wilburn.

Ciara told E! News in September she "definitely" wants to have more kids.

"We discuss a lot of things," she said about Wilson. "A lot of good things!"

"Honestly, him being in my life is really sweet," she added. "Life is pretty good, I can say that."
