Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson guest-starred on Tuesday’s episode of Kevin Hart’s Cold As Balls: Cold Calls internet show where the athlete discussed the Super Bowl, life in quarantine, and, of course, his wife Ciara, who is eight months pregnant with the couple’s third child

During the interview, Wilson discussed his father’s passing in June 2010 the day after he got drafted. “The highest of the high to the lowest of the low, just like that. And that was heavy on me,” he explained. “I had to take control of my own career, my own life, my own destiny and make the decision I had to make.”

The comedian also asked the athlete about his decision to play baseball or football professionally. Wilson explained that it was “one of the hardest decisions in [his] life.” He was an All-American at baseball but, after not receiving any offers equal to his asking price, he chose to pursue football instead.

The Seattle Seahawks player also shared an adorable pregnancy story about his famous wife when she was 2-months along and the two were preparing for a date night. 

"I'm getting all dressed up, ready, prepared, everything else. She says, 'Hey, I'm going to wear my Uggs.' Then she says, 'my feet hurt,'” he shared. “I wanted to finish the night strong, so I said, 'I'm going to rub your feet for the rest of the night.'"

Wilson also shared he’d like to make it to at least 13-15 years before retiring. Watch the full interview below.
