Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Gabrielle Union and NBA star Dwyane Wade are engaged, the “Being Mary Jane” star announced via Instagram on Saturday.
Union posted a photo of her hand wearing an enormous cushion-cut diamond ring on her finger captioned, “Sooooo this happened… #Yessss”
Wade himself also made an announcement Saturday, posting the very same photo, which he captioned, “She said YES!!! @gabunion”
According to TMZ, the sparkly 8.5 carat ring is worth nearly $1 million dollars. It was made by Jason of Beverly Hills.
The engagement does not come as a surprise as last year, Union opened up to Access Hollywood saying marriage was “absolutely” in the cards for her and Wade, but that they were taking their time.
Union, 41, and Wade, 31, started dating in 2008. This is the second marriage for both, as Union was previously married to Chris Howard from 2001 to 2006, and Wade was married with his high school sweetheart Siohvaughn Funches from 2002 to 2007.
