It is a time for Gabrielle Union to celebrate after just getting engaged to long-time boyfriend Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat. So to go out and get her party on she took a little trip to the beach with some of her girlfriends. She uploaded photos to her Instagram account to show everyone how happy she is. She rocked a red bikini, cowgirl hat, and sunglasses while posing for her photos. She sent multiple photos of her adventures out and sent out a tweet stating that she had just done a shark dive.
Just a little over a week ago she let her 2 million Twitter followers know that she had gotten engaged. She showed a photo of the 8.5 carat rock that was nestled softly on her ring finger. The estimated cost of the ring…a cool million! It took Wade a while to find the perfect ring, and when he finally found the stone that he liked he had it placed in a platinum band for Union.
Union and Wade began their relationship in 2009 but had broken up for a while earlier this year because of conflicting career schedules. Union was filming her new show Being Mary Jane and Wade was tending to injuries that he go while playing with the Heat. He told Jay Leno in an interview on the Tonight Show that since she was filming and he was trying to help his team win the championship with his injuries they decided to take a step back from the relationship for a bit.
Obviously they have found their way back to each other and couldn’t be happier. Wade’s sons from a previous marriage love Gabrielle.
