But, some people on social media are wondering... was Russell Wilson's photo announcing the news photoshopped? 

After looking at this from many possible angles, I still can't decide. 

The main point of confusion rests on Russell Wilson's shoulders... literally.

The main point of contention is the indent off Wilson's right shoulder.

If you've ever used Photoshop, it can be difficult to cut/crop out a person cleanly for the purposes of adding it to another layer or photo. 

However, this could just be Apple's Portrait Mode messing up. Or, it could be how Wilson is holding the phone and contorting his body. Maybe Wilson's shoulder has been messed up to the point that that's the appearance. Or, maybe someone's hand was removed during the cut-out portion of the edit and wasn't replaced. But wouldn't we see that person in the reflection of Wilson's glasses? And there's the tree in Ciara's photo and the reflection of the tree in Wilson's

It could also be edited. But, why would it be?!

It's very likely 100% totally real and Apple's portrait mode is throwing things off. 

You decide for yourself. 

UPDATE: We have an answer from the man himself.

Looks like it wasn't photoshop or Apple's portrait mode. Just football.
