Over the weekend Dwayne Wade proposed to Gabrielle Union and she said yes.
The two have been dating since 2009 so marriage was inevitable. In a sit down interview with Essence magazine February 2012 , D. Wade tells why they were in no rush to get married:
We’re not rushing it. Both of us have been married before, and we understand that if we choose to marry again, we want it to be right. We both took failing at marriage hard. The next time it’s gotta be forever.
In a quite interesting surprise this year the loving couple took a brief break from their relationship which only allowed their love to grow stronger. In an interview with Oprah, Wade shares his feelings about Gabrielle in these words:
She makes my eyes sparkle. The biggest time she makes my eyes sparkle is when Zaire (his 11-year-old son) comes home and homework is a little hard that day, so he’s stressing, and she goes to the table with him and she sits down until he gets it.
And at that time my heart is smiling a little bigger that day because I know her love is deeper than just me.
Check out the picture of the gorgeous ring they both shared on instagram.
According to reports,Dwayne did have a few of Santa’s little helpers to aid in his proposal. His two sons Zion and Zaire, as well as his nephew Dahveon each participated in the proposal process. The couple were getting ready for the Miami Heat’s holiday party when the three boys surprised Gabby by holding up three 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?”
Congratulations to the happy couple
