This past weekend Miami Heat baller Dwayne Wade put a ring on it and proposed to his girlfriend actress Gabrielle Union with a 8.5 carat ring
The happy couple both announced the news of their engagement via Instagram on Saturday night when Gabby posted a picture with the caption “So this happened…… #Yes @dwyanewade and Dwayne shared the same image with the caption, “She said YES!!!! @Gabunion..
According to my plug the proposal happened right before the two lovebirds headed out to the Miami Heat holiday party.
D Wade also got a little help from his two sons Zion and Zaire and his nephew Dahveon who was all holding up signs:
— 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?”
Gabrielle was caught off guard as she turned around and read the signs the boys were holding up and spotted D Wade standing there on one knee with the ring. He later revealed that he included his sons and nephews as part of the proposal because they all come as a three package deal.
I planned it. 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. They were all happy and excited to be involved.
D Wade also opened up about the ring he put on Gabby’s finger stating:
I kind of know my lady. I know she’s simple, but at the same time, I just wanted the rock to kind of speak for itself and not do too much with the diamonds. I think it’s a simple ring, but it’s nice. I wanted something that years from now I don’t have to spend no more money to upgrade it.It was nicely done … it’s timeless.
D Wade and Gabrielle have been dating since 2009 and they are thinking of a 2014 wedding date.
Congrats again to the happy couple….
