Newly Engaged Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s Holiday Photo Shoot Might Just Be the Cutest Thing Ever

 Celebrity, Celebrity Weddings, Gabrielle Union  Comments Off on Newly Engaged Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s Holiday Photo Shoot Might Just Be the Cutest Thing Ever

Just earlier this week came news that actress Gabrielle Union is engaged to NBA star Dwyane Wade, and already more adorable details are surfacing about their relationship!

Long before Wade put an engagement ring on it, the pair, who have been together since 2009, acted as a cozy family unit. After all, when word spread that Wade did finally propose, news that the couple's holiday card was signed as the "Wade/Union family" also surfaced. Plus, Wade enlisted his two sons and nephew to play an integral role in his romantic proposal (they three boys held up signs asking Union to "marry us"). Even if it wasn't official yet, the Miami Heat player and his longtime girlfriend were in a very serious and committed place. This is the precise reason why we couldn't be more thrilled that Wade posted a behind-the-scenes video on YouTube of the family's holiday photo shoot.

The clip opens with Gabrielle getting her makeup done, announcing that they are behind-the-scenes of the shoot, and making a quick jab that she'd "just say the Wade family shoot, but we're not married" (and subsequently makes a face at the camera). The jokes don't stop there, Wade comes out, stands in front of Union, and says "The reason we're doing this photo shoot is me."

Sprinkled in between various dance breaks, costume changes, adorable exclamations from the kids, and the couple's fight for the spotlight are stolen moments between Gabrielle and Dwayne (um, can you say most attractive couple ever?!). Our favorite part, though, is a "Mr. Swag" cutaway, in which Wade's youngest son walks viewers through his stylish attire in a way that will make your heart instantly melt (forget most attractive couple, they're the most attractive family ever).

Needless to say, we're loving this glimpse into the Wade/Union unit! Wade is clearly a family man, so we're sure when the couple does tie the knot, the kids will be just as involved in the ceremony as they were in the photo shoot and proposal.

Happy holidays to the soon-to-be Wade family and happy watching!

Well, she sure hit a slam dunk: Gabrielle Union got engaged to Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade this past weekend.

It didn't take long for the actress to share her joy with the world. Immediately following the proposal, Union posted a picture to Instagram of her stunning (and huge) ring with the caption: "Sooooo this happened... #Yessss"

No, you don't need to check your eyesight. The ring is an 8.5 cushion-cut diamond solitaire fashioned by Jason of Beverly Hills, reports Us Weekly (the same jeweler that crafted Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles's Heather Bilyeu's round-cut stunner). Union joins the likes of Kim Kardashian and Kelly Rowland, who also sport sizable (and by sizable, we mean out-of-this-world) cushion-cut engagement rings.

Wade also took to Twitter and Instagram to share the happy news. "She said YES!!!" the NBA star wrote alongside a picture of Union's hand in his, with, of course, the eye-catching ring on her finger. He popped the question right before the Miami Heat Christmas party. His teammates couldn't have been more thrilled for their guard, and expressed their excitement via social media as well. "The @MiamiHEAT Christmas party always brings great traditions and the BEST surprises," Adrienne Bosh, wife of Heat forward Chris Bosh, tweeted at the party. Micky Arison, the Miami Heat managing general partner, also tweeted "A special evening-congrats."

The newly-engaged couple have been open about their love for one another ever since they began dating in 2009. The Associated Press even reports that the pair sent out holiday cards from the "Wade-Union" family this year, before the engagement was even announced. Wade has three sons (one of which is a nephew he's raising as is his own) who adorably helped pop the question. The Heat star told the Associated Press that his youngest son, Zion, held a sign with Union's name, his nephew, Dahveon Morris, held a sign that said "Will you?" and his oldest son held a sign that said "marry us?" The only thing that's cuter than that news is the photo, below, of the couple's joyous embrace post-proposal.
