Details on How Wade Propose to Gabrielle Union [Photo]
This past week Dwyane Wade proposed to his girlfriend of several years Gabrielle Union. She then said yes and they both showed off the rings from their respective IG accounts. Now D. Wade has spoken out and discussed the details of the proposal with AP, read below.
The three boys that the Miami Heat guard is raising, his two sons and a nephew, all were part of the engagement surprise, Wade said Sunday when he spoke out about the big news for the first time.
— His youngest son Zion held a sign with her name.
— His nephew Dahveon Morris’ sign said “Will you.”
— And his oldest son Zaire’s sign read “marry us?”
Bewildered, Union turned to Wade and saw him on bended knee, then realized what was happening. An 8½-carat cushion cut diamond sealed the deal, and with that, Wade was an engaged man again.
“I planned it,” Wade said. “No concrete for my knee. I planned it very well.”
“Just a regular Saturday,” Wade said. “My kids were involved in it. We asked her to marry all of us, not just me. We’re a package deal, so it was cool.”
“It took a lot for him to do it,” said James, a four-time NBA MVP and a longtime friend of Wade’s. “But I think Gab is perfect for him. I think D-Wade is perfect for Gab. For them to be at one now and for their whole family to come together, man, I think it’s amazing. It’s another step for him. I thought it was pretty cool. I’m all for it. I’m happy for them.”
Wade said Union didn’t hesitate in saying yes, though his kids were concerned that she would turn them down. It will be the second marriage for Wade and Union, who have been dating for several years.
“Terrific news about Dwyane and Gabby,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “It was a special night.”
