Dwyane Wade and his longtime girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union, chose the Miami Heat’s holiday party as the scene for a big announcement.

The Heat star and Union announced on Instagram and Twitter that they are engaged. It will be the second marriage for Union, 41, and Wade, 31. They shared no further information, other than details about the rock and Union’s manicure.


Union wasn’t the only one inclined to say yes to Wade. His teammates seemed to like that he hadn’t forgotten them (even though these might go straight to the attic) with the gift of Masters-like green jackets.

LeBron James posted the images on Instagram and wrote: “@dwyanewade’s in the giving mood tonight! Gave everyone from our championship team last year a green jacket reminiscing of the Masters! Unbelievably thought out! Fashion at the same time! Crazy! #TheHeatles #ChannelingOurInnerMastersAtGolf #RoleWithTheWinners #IsThisWhyTheyHateUs #HaveFunWithWhatYouDo”
