Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are engaged.
The Miami Heat star proposed to his longtime girlfriend Saturday and the actress accepted. They announced the news through social media, around the same time as the two-time defending NBA champions were gathering for a team Christmas party.
“She said YES!!!” Wade posted to his Twitter and Instagram accounts, with a photo of Union wearing a large diamond solitaire on the ring finger of her left hand.
“A special evening,” Heat managing general partner Micky Arison wrote on Twitter.
Added Adrienne Bosh, the wife of Heat forward Chris Bosh, also on Twitter: “The @MiamiHEAT Christmas party always brings great traditions and the BEST surprises.”
Wade proposed to Union before the party. The couple have been together for several years and there were recent indications that marriage was in the plans — specifically how their Christmas cards had a return address sticker calling them the “Wade-Union Family.”
