This morning, “Being Mary Jane” Gabrielle Union appeared on ‘Live With Kelly & Michael” in New York City to promote the new season of the BET scripted show and to dish on her recent engagement to Miami Heat baller Dwyane Wade and skips questions about Wade’s baby mama drama.
When asked about how DWade popped the question to her on Christmas Eve, Gabby said:
“I was completely surprised by it. He and the boys had planned it as a family. We were just going to spend the day having family time by going to lunch. He said, do you want to do your hair or makeup? I was like, ‘No.’ We were going from there to our house that is under construction and I was dressed for a construction site.”
“So the boys are like, can we do a presentation for you. So me and Dwyane turn around and then the boys say, ‘OK we’re ready.’ And we turn back around and they’re holding signs that say “Nicki Nique?,(because my middle name is Monique) will you marry us?”
But I thought they were just playing, because they ask me all the time. So I was like, ‘Well this is embarrassing. Now they bring in signs.’
I suddenly turned to Dwyane and he was already down on one knee. He was like, would you marry us? And I was like, ‘Are you serious?! Oh, of course!’
The kids then thought I was saying no, and I’m like ‘Yes, Yes!”
The actress however skipped the questions about the whole cheating rumors and baby mama drama involving her new fiance, but Union did reveal that they are currently building their dream home. Watch the clip below:
Be sure to watch the premiere of “Being Mary Jane” tonight at 10/9 on BET.
