Gabrielle Union will be turning 40 this year, and her relationship with Dwyane Wade is still going strong, as well. But neither of those things are pushing her to have a kid anytime soon. She told Ocean Drive magazine:
On life with Dwyane Wade in Miami
D and I have a life together, too. I love my life in Miami. I can’t imagine functioning without both. I love the design district, I love Midtown, I love what’s happening downtown now. I’m comfortable. It’s rare for me to feel that level of freedom. Miami represents joy for me. A week away is pretty much it for me. When I land in Miami, I feel like I’ve been holding my breath and am finally exhaling. I can breathe. I feel accepted, welcomed. I feel like I can be my true self, the woman I always aspired to be… More in Miami than any other place.
On having children:
I was never someone who thought about having kids – I mean, they’re great in theory, but I never imagined having one [myself]. Maybe over the next five years I could wrap my brain around becoming a mother and what that would mean in terms of sacrifice and dedication. I don’t do anything impulsively, so more toward the five years out than the one-year.
Are Gabrielle & Dwyane in it for the long haul?
