Union shared the good news on Twitter, with a pic of her dazzling engagement ring:
Union and Wade have faced their share of challenges, with Wade’s ex-wife Siovaughn battling for custody of their two sons, and back in 2010 filed a lawsuit against the “Being Mary Jane” star, accusing her of alienation of affection and “engaging in sexual foreplay” in front of her children (the case was dismissed ).
In a 2012 interview with Jet Magazine, Union explained why she didn’t publicly rebut Siovaughn’s accusations: “The kids. For the people that hire me, it’s a non issue. But at the end of the day, Dwyane’s kids are going to be the ones who really suffer. They’re 10 and 4 and a half. They’re old enough to understand the mean things that strangers can say.”
Earlier this year, Wade admitted on “Jay Leno” that he and Union split up briefly, due to their demanding careers: “Celebrity relationships are very hard. For us this was a big year for our relationship from the standpoint she was shooting her show, Being Mary Jane and gone most of the year. I was dealing with my injuries [and] trying to win a championship. So we kind of took a step back. We supported each other but we took a step back for a little while. At the end of the day, we came back together and said we want to continue this and we want to get better each day. She’s been with me and I’ve been with her all summer long. We’re going strong now.”
We’re happy to see the two lovebirds found their way back to each other. Congrats to Dwyane and Gabrielle!
