Naturally, the newlywed took to social media with an adorable message for his special lady. Sharing a cute snap of the pair laughing as the NFL player, 27, led his leading lady into the White House State Dinner, Wilson tweeted, “Come on lil’ Pretty Young Thing… you’re coming with me for Forever. Happy Birthday My Love! I Love You to Heaven & Back.”

According to Wilson’s Instagram, the couple got a head start celebrating Ci Ci’s special day, with a big birthday dinner in Washington the night prior. According to E! News, the dynamic duo dined at Salish Lodge, with the Snoqualmie Falls serving as their backdrop. “Entered My Birthday With A Tasty Dinner Overlooking The Falls With My Love…#Grateful,” Ciara wrote alongside an adorable image from her intimate dinner via Instagram.

Back in August, the mother of one praised her relationship with the NFL player, telling E! News that their new life together has been a cake walk. “Married life is the best life,” she explained. “It’s definitely life-changing, and you do feel a difference between the stages of being boyfriend and girlfriend to being engaged to actually being married. You feel the definition of what ‘being one’ is, and it’s really cool. Nothing compares to what this feels like.”

The “Goodies” recording artist went on to suggest that it doesn’t feel like the excitement will ever fade: “My new life changes that have happened with my son and being married puts more pep in my step because the foundation of my life is solid.”

If you ask us, Ciara is right to be excited. She’s having the year of her life and we couldn’t be happier for her.
