After four years together, Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union got engaged last night. But how exactly did D-Wade do it? Well, Wade discussed the details with The Associated Press, giving a quick rundown on the entire process. 

The three boys that the Miami Heat guard is raising, his two sons and a nephew, all were part of the engagement surprise, Wade said Sunday when he spoke out about the big news for the first time.  

  • His youngest son Zion held a sign with her name.
  • His nephew Dahveon Morris’ sign said “Will you.”
  • And his oldest son Zaire’s sign read “marry us?”

If you know anything about Wade's personal life, you know that his kids are an important part of his life, so it should come as no surprise that he incorporated them in the proposal. Nice touch with the "us" part, by the way. And for those of you worried about Wade getting down on one knee with those brittle knees, he had y'all in mind as well. “I planned it,” Wade said. “No concrete for my knee. I planned it very well.” We said it before and we'll say it again, congrats to both of them.
