Up until the last minute, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson wasn't sure who he would bring to the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday. Ciara! His grandmother! Ciara and his grandmother! Nope, just his grandmother.

But on Tuesday night, he and rumored love interest Ciara made their first official public appearance together at the Japan State Dinner at the White House. They had been spotted at a Mariners game earlier this month, but the Obamas' State Dinner was the first time they had "stepped out" together for the press. (To be clear, neither one has said that they're romantically involved.)

They held hands! She called him "baby"! They took goofy pictures in front of the White House podium! Best first (public) date ever!
