An Ivy honorary doctorate, a super inspirational commencement speech, and a viral video surprising his bomb wife with flowers, butt grabs and kisses at her event. This whole weekend has def been a flex for Russell Wilson. Get into it inside.
If this is what Square Life looks like, sign us up. Twice!
Yesterday, Russ and Ciara headed to Hanover to Dartmouth College where not only his four uncles attended, but where his late father also attended and played football and baseball. Yup, the double sport stardom runs in the family.
The Broncos QB pulled up to give the commencement address to the graduating class, escorted by his uncle and alum Benjamin Wilson. Russ joined his family legacy and nabbed an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters as well. Nice!
It's the Black Excellence for us.
During his speech, he joked he's often introduced as "Ciara's husband." And aint nothing wrong with that when you're both successful AF. Of course, folks had jokes of their own:
They'll never let Russell Wilson forget

Get into Dr. Wilson's super inspirational speech below:
Before his big commencement speech, Russ headed to Ciara's Ten To Rum event to surprise her with flowers and kisses while she was in the middle of shooting content. And he had all the jokes talking about "Stay squared up my friends."

We know that's right! Love everything about this. And we love seeing men on the timeline supporting all of this here, and not playing into the "loving your black wife is lame and corny" B.S. Because if you don't have the emotional and financial security to love your wife out loud, just say that.

I saw a comment where someone said that some men are threatened by Russell Wilson because he represents an idea of a man they never had access to….and I just….whew. Sheesh.

Grown men be calling Russell Wilson a simp. Imagine calling a man who takes care of his family a simp? Make it make sense. This shit is coming from squares who put on a facade for social media, still live with their momma & don’t take care of the bare minimum in a household.
