In the February issue of Essence, loves of nearly three years Union and Dwayne Wade talk candidly about their views on marriage — and why Union may be headed to reality TV.
Will Gabrielle Union join the growing list of bride-to-bes in Hollywood?
“We’re not rushing it,” Wade, a 29-year-old NBA player, says. “Both of us have been married before, and we understand that if we choose to marry again, we want it to be right.”
(Wade has two sons, Zaire, 9, and Zion, 3, with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches; Union was wed to NFL player Chris Howard from 2001-2006.)
“We both took failing at marriage hard,” Wade explains. “The next time it’s gotta be forever.”
Union, who next stars in Tyler Perry‘s Good Deeds, echoes her boyfriend’s sentiments. “When it happens, it’s going to be something that only our friends and family know about,” the 39-year-old actress tells Essence. “That is, unless the E! Network comes up with the right number, of course.”
