The man who America has had in the back of their minds all week is finally speaking up!
Who knew Dwyane Wade was such a romantic?!?
This weekend, the Miami Heat shooting guard finally popped the question and proposed to his longtime girlfriend Gabrielle Union! But he didn't do it alone, as he tells us he had a little help from his kiddies!
D-Wade opened up about the team effort and said he had the whole thing planned out, and had his youngest son Zion hold a sign that read "Gabrielle," his nephew Dahveon Morris held a sign that said "will you," and finally his oldest son Zaire had the last sign that said "marry us?" By the time the actress realized what was going on, she turned around to find her soon-to-be hubby on bended knee with a HUGE rock!
He dished about the experience, saying:
"My kids were involved in it. We asked her to marry all of us, not just me. We’re a package deal, so it was cool."
Awwww! How cute is that! No wonder she said yes!!
Dwyane also opened up about the bling he picked out for Gabrielle, saying:
"I kind of know my lady. 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. It was nicely done … it’s timeless."
If by "simple" he means HUMONGOUS, then yes, it's very simple! LOLz!!
But Dwyane wasn't the only one to open up about the proposal, as his teammate LeBron James also spoke out and said he knew it was coming:
"It took a lot for him to do it. But I think Gab is perfect for him. I think D-Wade is perfect for Gab. For them to be at one now and for their whole family to come together, man, I think it’s amazing. It’s another step for him. I thought it was pretty cool. I’m all for it. I’m happy for them."
There's still no date set for their wedding yet, however Dwyane says he expects their big day to be sometime in September of 2014!
We couldn't be happier for Gabrielle and D-Wade and can't wait for them to tie the knot! Congrats, guys!
