UPDATE: After this story was published, Russell Wilson posted a Facebook video that said he was taking his grandma to the White House Correspondents' Dinner. No word yet on whether this means he'll have a lady on each arm or Grandma is attending instead of Ciara. See the video at the bottom of the post.

Looks like Future is a thing of the past.

Rumors started swirling that Ciara had found a new beau this weekend, after the "Body Party" singer was spotted Sunday (April 19) with Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson at a Mariners game in Seattle.

Enterprising fans recognized the singer based on a selfie she shared earlier that day on Instagram, more than compensating for Seattle's lack of paparazzi.

Though neither Ciara's nor Russell's reps have confirmed the relationship, an innocent press release on the White House Correspondents' Dinner guest list from AOL suggests things are more than platonic. Russell Wilson is listed as attending this weekend's event "with his date Ciara."

Ciara, 'I Bet': Exclusive Song Premiere

The Super Bowl-winning QB may seem like a pretty big change from rapper Future, Ciara's former fiancé and father of her 11-month-old son Future Zahir Wilburn, but if Ciara's interview last week with Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club is any indication, she's ready for something different. When asked if she'd date someone in the industry again, she said "Never say never, but I do think you gotta switch it up a little bit."

Russell was a consummate host, taking Ciara all around Seattle during her visit, from a trip to church...

...to Pike Place Market...

...to Pet Smart (!)...

...to the Bellevue, Wash. P.F. Chang's.

Look for more details to emerge when the pair hit the Correspondents' Dinner this Saturday (April 25).

Can't wait to dance with my beautiful date at the WHCD this weekend! #shesgotmoves #loveugrandma
