Russell Wilson shared a heartfelt Instagram tribute to his stepson Future on his 6th birthday. The post included a video of them both underwater in a pool, swimming toward the camera with smiles on their faces.
The Seattle Seahawk quarterback wrote in the caption, “You are my daily inspiration. My best friend…Full of Love, Joy, and Grace. I thank Jesus everyday for who you are & being able to lead & guide you. Your future is forever endless and I pray you swim into every opportunity and obstacle in life with this much Love and Enthusiasm. Happy 6th Birthday Future! Daddy loves you! @ciara.”

Of course, little Future is the child of Wilson’s wife Ciara and her ex-fiancé Future. The Freebandz boss tweeted his son a birthday greeting on Tuesday (May 19) as well, writing “Happy Birthday FUTURE. Love u FOREVER twin.”
Happy Birthday FUTURE. Love u FOREVER twin

For some reason, Twitter is highly invested in the love Wilson has for his stepson and wasted no time presenting various opinions on the matter. While most people were highly supportive of Wilson’s gesture, others took it as an opportunity to drag Future’s biological father.
Some also appeared salty about Wilson taking little Future under his wing as his own. Those who did, got clowned.

I don’t see nothing wrong with Russell Wilson post about Baby Future. Do your job as a father and you won’t have to worry about another man expressing his love for your child. Y’all niggas insecure & toxic.

Look I’m the biggest Future fan around but nobody should have an issue with this man treating his step son like a son. That’s a blessing for baby Future pic.twitter.com/fQCTYN51IU

Why are you niggas mad at Russell Wilson? He's doing what you trifling fuck niggas won't do. He's a stand up man and a great role model for Baby Future. What the fuck is his sperm donor going to teach him? How to pop Molly and percs? That nigga belong to the streets.. Trash

It's funny how Future tweets about Baby Future like he is the Step Dad and Russ Wilson tweets like he is the Dad.
It is hilarious to me.

Future has a dad already. Acknowledge the babies you're not claiming who need a father. https://t.co/VfhX9ME30p

While the topic is hot..from what I see or have seen..Russell Wilson is a dope step dad/father. I’m not debating about it so take that up with God before you @ me
