Russell Wilson and Ciara attend the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Radhika Jones at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts on Feb. 9, 2020 in Beverly Hills.

Ciara and Russell Wilson sat down (virtually) with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (April 8), and the interview was heartwarming from start to finish.

To kick off the chat, the couple revealed that they donated one million meals to the Seattle community, via Feeding America's Food Lifeline. "We have our foundation, the Why Not You foundation, and my dad used to always ask me this fundamental question, every day almost, he would say, ’Son, why not you?’ And it was the fundamental conscious and subconscious question that drove my whole life," Wilson explained.

"I think the same thing with Ciara, and that’s why we created the Why Not You foundation, to implement this attitude to kids all over the world. We want to be able to impact with coronavirus right now. So what we did was donated a million meals to Feeding America in Seattle, which has been a blessing and very, very cool."

Their "Meals Up" campaign went on to donate 10 million meals, thanks to Tom Brady, JJ Watt and more.

Halfway through the interview, viewers were treated to an adorable surprise when Fallon's six-year-old daughter Winnie is heard shouting off-camera, "Daddy, I lost my tooth!”

She comes into the frame and showed off her missing tooth. "Oh my gosh, Winnie, I'm so happy," proud father Fallon exclaimed.

When Ciara asked how it happened, Winnie very candidly admitted, "Mommy put a string around my tooth and she tried to pull it out and then it worked."
