On Mother’s Day, Russell Wilson took to Instagram to pen a beautiful letter of love to Ciara.

“Nothing better than spending time with you. You are an amazing mom & I’m so grateful I get to spend the rest of my life with you & raising our kids. I love you! #HappyMothersDay Weekend my love. @Ciara,” he wrote.

While Wilson had a daughter, Sienna, with Ciara, many people on the internet, mostly fans of Future, took exception to the fact that Wilson had used the phrase “our kids,” since Ciara has a three-year-old son, Future Jr., with her ex, Future. Apparently, people didn’t like the idea of Wilson claiming any part in the life of Future Jr.

But others defended Wilson for having such a loving relationship with his stepson.

“It’s also his child, as he raises him, and this is more important than being a sperm donor,” one fan wrote. “I was also raised by non-biological father and I am his daughter and he is my real father, period.”

“He’s doing a great job!” another said. “When you marry you take on that role as a father to her child!! What’s the fuss about anyway!”
