Gabrielle Union said yes when Miami Heat star Dwayne Wade proposed to her on Saturday. Union, who is 41, was married once before–as was Wade, who will turn 32 in January.

Dwayne Wade proposed to Gabrielle Union shortly before the two attended the Miami Heat Christmas party. The two have dated for several years.

Those close to the couple received a bit of a hint about their future plans when they received Christmas cards from them. The return address read ‘The Wade-Union Family.’ This is the first year for that connotation, and it was continued inside the cards as well.

“Happy Holidays from the Wade-Union Family,” the signature reads.

Although no official announcement came from either Gabrielle Union or Dwayne Wade, social media was abuzz with the news.

Dwayne Wade posted the same photo to his Instagram account with the caption, “She said yes!”

The official Miami Heat team Twitter account was all to happy to share the news as well.
