Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union Are Finally Engaged!

The relationship that seems to have lasted forever finally has a ring on it.  Dwyane Wade and his girlfriend Gabrielle Union have announced that they are going to tie the knot officially, according to ABC News.

Wade, who is the star of the Miami Heat, proposed to his future wife this week, right before Christmas.  The two then went to social media to tell the world the good news.

“She said YES!!!” Wade said on his Twitter page.  He then showed a picture of Union wearing a gigantic diamond ring on her left hand.

There is a pretty big age difference between the two:  Wade is 32 and Union is 41.  Most celebrity marriages with this kind of age difference haven’t lasted, and some end in disaster.  But so far, the ship has been steady between the two.

“A special evening,” Heat managing general partner Micky Arison wrote on Twitter.

Adrienne Bosh, the wife of Chris Bosh, another Heat player, tweeted, “The @MiamiHEAT Christmas party always brings great traditions and the BEST surprises.”

Wade dropped the proposal on his wife-to-be right before the party began. The two had been passing hints of their pending engagement by sending out Christmas cards labeled “The Wade-Union family.”

Wade has been with the Miami Heat for a decade, helping the team win three championships and positioning himself as one of the great leaders in the NBA.
