Ciara and devout Russell famously embraced a no sex before marriage policy, with Russell explaining during a July 2015 interview with Pastor Miles McPherson that he'd been the one to suggest it.

"I said to her – and she completely agreed – 'Can we love each other without that?' If you can love somebody without that, then you can really love somebody," he said (according to People.)

"I ain't gonna lie – I need ya'll to pray for us. Because I know you have seen her on the screen now. If there's a 10, she's a 15. Pray for me, keep my mind clear, keep my heart clear."

Ciara, meanwhile, told Access Hollywood: "It's until the deal is sealed. Absolutely. It was an organic thing for him and I think he was just being honest about where we are. It's cool when you get to build a foundation with someone on how much you care for each other and really know each other's personalities, so it's really fun."

The singer has a son, Future Jr, two, with rapper ex-fiance Future.
