Gabrielle Union is engaged to Dwyane Wade, according to a Dec. 21 E! News report. The “Being Mary Jane” star shared her good news and showed off her huge diamond engagement ring on Instagram on Saturday. “Sooooo this happened... #Yessss @dwyanewade,” the 41-year-old giddy bride-to-be wrote.
The soon-to-be groom joined in on the social media love, sharing the same photo with his caption, “She said YES!!! @gabunion.”
People magazine reports that Union’s engagement ring is a custom 8.5 carat cushion cut engagement ring by Jason of Beverly Hills.
According to Us Weekly, Wade shared his feelings for his now fiancé with Oprah Winfrey on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” last summer. "She makes my eyes sparkle. The biggest time she makes my eyes sparkle is when Zaire [his 11-year-old son from a previous marriage]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.”
The couple has been dating since 2009. This will be the second marriage for both Wade and Union.
