The rumors you've heard are half-true: Yes, Russell Wilson is bringing a smoking hot date to the White House Correspondent's Dinner.

But no, that hot babe is not pop singer Ciara. It's actually Wilson's grandmother.

Rumors had been swirling after an alleged RSVP from Wilson to the dinner showed that his guest joining him was named "Ciara." Observers quickly attributed him to the singer and wondered if the couple had been secretly dating.

Wilson posted a video on Facebook to offer a simple clarification: He'll be spending the evening with his grandma.

"Can't wait to dance with my beautiful date at the WHCD this weekend! #shesgotmoves #loveugrandma," Wilson wrote in the post.

Of course, that hasn't quelled rumors about his relationship with Ciara. Many celebrity news outlets remain convinced that the two are dating, and that Wilson's decision to bring his grandma may simply be a smoke-and-mirrors act he came up with after drawing so much media attention.

That's all speculation. What can be sure of: His grandma is one lucky lady.
