The NFL baller surprised his girlfriend Ciara in such a sweet way that it not only made her swoon, it totally made us melt too. Russell threw an epic surprise costume-themed party to celebrate her 30th birthday, which falls close to Halloween (Oct. 25).
To kick things off, Ciara was given instructions to change into a Catwoman suit and head to the Warner Bros. studio, according to Vogue. Once she got there, she found Russell dressed up as Batman next to an actual Batmobile (!) - it was used in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Then, to top that off, she walked into her birthday party at the Batman exhibit on the lot, where Beyoncé (dressed up as a fierce Storm from X-Men) and Kelly Rowland, Serena Williams, La Anthony and Lily Collins, were all dressed up too, along with 100 of her closest family and friends. Even her adorable 17-month-old son Future Zahire was there, dressed up in a Superman costume with a big smile on his face (we can't take all the cuteness in these shots).
As she walked in, "they screamed 'Surprise!,' a source told People. "Ciara was overwhelmed with emotion and began to cry tears of joy." A deejay started to play Stevie Wonder's "Happy Birthday" for her too, and those who couldn't make the party in person, like Ludacris, Joe Jonas, Jennifer Hudson, Missy Elliott, Michael Strahan and more sent well wishes by satellite. "All the guests dined on sushi and danced into the evening," the source said.
Following the bash, Ciara posted a ton of photos from it, including a shot of herself standing with Russell. "Batman To My Rescue ❤," she captioned it. She also put up a snap of herself posing with Kelly, Serena, Beyoncé and more friends. "The Squad Was Thick..... @Valgabond @KellyRowland @LaLa @Beyoncé @AngieBeyince @SerenaWilliams #TheBestSurpriseBirthdayPartyEver," she captioned it. And there were more, including another where she sat in the Batmobile with Russell with a big smile on her face. "You Make Me Smile.. #TheBestSurpriseBirthdayPartyEver," she wrote alongside it. #relationshipgoals
