Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade and his longtime girlfriend Gabrielle Union are engaged.
Wade and Union announced the news on social media at the same time on Saturday. Wade posted the photo below on Twitter and Instagram with the caption: “She said YES!!!”
Union posted the same photo of her 8.5 carat cushion cut diamond ring made by Jason of Beverly Hills, with the caption: “Sooooo this happened… #Yessss.”
According to reports, Wade had help from his two sons Zion and Zaire and his nephew Dahveon. The proposal took place at their home while they were getting ready for the Miami Heat’s holiday party,
The three boys surprised Union 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?”
“I planned it. My kids were involved in it. We asked her to marry all of us, not just me,” Wade said. “We’re a package deal, so it was cool. They were all happy and excited to be involved.”
Union was caught off guard by the timing of the moment.
“I kind of know my lady,” Wade said. “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.”
Wade and Union have been together officially since 2008. Many assumed an engagement was in the works because their Christmas cards had a return address sticker that read “Wade-Union Family.”
The couple plans to marry in September of 2014. This will be the second marriage for Wade and Union.
