Ciara and Russell Wilson’s Video Tribute to One Another Following the Birth of Their Babe Will Make You Ugly Cry
It was just yesterday that Ciara and Russell Wilson welcomed their first child together into the world, a baby girl with a name fit for a princess: Sienna Princess Wilson.
Though the couple surely has their hands full ATM, fully immersed in lavishing love on their little one, it didn’t stop them from taking time out to show their appreciation for one another.
Ciara uploaded to Instagram a black and white video taken during her pregnancy of her and Wilson spending a day the beach. Set to a romantic tune entitled “No Turning Back,” with uber-sweet lyrics that speak of love eternal by Joy Oladokun (set for release next week), the lovebirds are seen swinging with one another as they overlook the water, before taking a hand-in-hand stroll along its edge.
Though their actions are simple enough, the imagery (perhaps partially captured by the duo, with Wilson seen holding a camera?) is absolutely stunning, making our throats catch and our eyes well up with tears no less than five seconds in. In fact, by the time the video closes on a shot of the now-expanded family sitting quietly together, both of their hands on Ciara’s rounded belly, we were in full-on ugly cry mode.
Ciara dedicated the vid to her QB husband, saying,“You bring us peace.” Wilson, in turn, also posted the vid with the adorable note of, “I got you momma.”
In short? It is, quite possibly, the sweetest thing we’ve ever seen. Do yourself a favor and click play.
Congratulations, guys — your family is beautiful.

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
