Russell Wilson is celebrating eight years of marriage with Ciara — and a “lifetime” to go!

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, 35, marked the milestone with a sweet compilation of the couple throughout the years, including some cute cameos from their kids: Amora, 6 months, Win, 4, Sienna, 7, and Future Zahir, 10, from her previous relationship with rapper Future.

Alongside the sweet clips, which range from red carpet appearances and lovey-dovey home videos to footage from the couple’s 2016 wedding, Wilson also wrote a sweet message for the “Like a Boy” singer.

Earlier this year, Ciara celebrated a different milestone in her relationship with longtime love Wilson: the anniversary of the day the pair met.

In March, the “One, Two Step” artist shared an Instagram post to commemorate the day when she and the quarterback first crossed paths.

Alongside photos and videos of herself with a large bouquet of heart balloons, Ciara wrote, “3.26 the day that we met…9 years ago & forever one of the best days of my life.”

"I love you so much @DangeRussWilson,” she added.

Opening up about her life as a mom and wife in 2021, Ciara told GQ, "I feel like, if I could look back in a crystal ball when I was a little girl and I looked at the idea of my family and what it would be for me, it's exactly this."

Added Wilson: "Every day I come home from work and it's late at night, it's after film and practice and all that, and me and Ciara are together, and we just smile from ear-to-ear in the kitchen because we realize that our family is a beautiful blended family but it's also, you know, our family. It's us."
