Gabrielle Union’s new rock is big enough to make any celebrity bride jealous.
According to reports, Dwyane Wade picked out a 8.5 carat cushion cut diamond ring for his new fiancé. It was designed by famous celeb jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills, who took three trips to Miami to find the perfect perfect jewel. TMZ learned the ring is valued at nearly 1 million dollars.
Sources say Dwyane was on the hunt for the stone of Gabrielle’s dreams for months. From the looks of things, the NBA champion did a fabulous job!
The longtime lovebirds announced their engagement to friends and fans on their Twitter and Instagram accounts yesterday. “Sooooo this happened…#Yessss,” the 40-year-old actress wrote. The Miami Heat star added, “She said YES!!!”
The soon-to-be bride and groom have been an item since 2009. On an interview on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” last summer, Dwyane said, “She makes my eyes sparkle.”
“The biggest time she makes my eyes sparkle is when Zaire (his 11-year-old son from a previous marriage to Siohvaughn Funches) comes home and homework is a little hard that day, so he’s stressing, and she goes to the table with him and she sits down until he gets it,” she said. “And at that time my heart is smiling a little bigger that day because I know her love is deeper than just me.”
Congrats to the happy couple!
