Dwyane Wade Says: Gabrielle Union “Makes My Eyes Sparkle”


The Miami Heat basketball player, 30, gushed when referring to his girlfriend during Oprah’s Next Chapter July 8. And it’s all because of the way Gabrielle Union helps raise his sons, Zaire, 10, and Zion, 5 (from his previous marriage to Siohvaughn Funches, his high school sweetheart).

Dwayne said he loves her especially when, Zaire (his oldest son) 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,” Wade said of Union, 39, his love of three years. “And at that time my heart is smiling a little bigger that day because I know her love is deeper than just me.”

In March 2011, Wade was awarded custody of his boys after a three-year court battle with Funches. Despite their highly publicized family drama, Wade made sure his sons never doubted both of their parents’ love. But in the meantime, Siohvaughn might lose her 12th lawyer in the child custody battle with Wade due to her erratic and bitter behavior. Siohvaughn was recently arrested for refusing to return the boys to Dwayne father’s day weekend.

But Dwayne Wade, the two-time NBA champ said, with Gabrielle Union by his side, his life has only gotten a whole lot better. “We’re a family, and we’re growing as a family every day. And I think that’s the great thing about it,” Wade said. “We have so much more room to improve as a family and it’s awesome.”

Oprah’s Next Chapter aired Sunday (July 8th) on OWN.

      Well I’m going to say this I’m all for black couples being in love and being sucessful but YES @Angelhair, lets not forget that he did cheat on his ex-wife with Ms. Gabby and then fought the ex wife for the kids so that he wouldn’t have to pay her child support amoung other things after she loved him when he didn’t have two dimes to rub together and still gave him two kids.

      I still think a whole lotta this could have been prevented if that nigga woulda been a man about his marriage and not some typical rags-to-riches hollywood pussy-struck athlete.

      But at some point Siovaughn is without a doubt responsible for being a fuckin adult too, and goin’ through lawyers like Tiger Woods go through ugly white bitches only makes her case for anything involving D-Wade or those boys hard to take seriously. I wish her the best because she’s the mother of those kids and she lost her husband to the lure of pussy that come with havin’ major money, but life goes on. Learn your position, learn how to let shit go that you can’t control, and master what you can control. But first you gotta get up off the fuckin couch and stop watching Gabby clips on youtube – fuck that bitch…

    3. LOL @ Sane!!!!!
      Remember, we only get to hear ONE SIDE of the story and it’s always from Wade’s point of view or his “sources”.

      And believe it or not, people go throw attorneys all the time when they’re not happy or feel they’re not getting the representation they deserve. Wade is a high profile athlete using his PR machine to skew shit in his favor. It seems to be working.

      I know that things aren’t always as they seem. This woman didn’t suddenly become crazy. She was his high school sweetheart that he married whom he then went on to have not just one, but TWO children with. She was perfectly “normal” when everything was good, but now she’s become psychologically unhinged during divorce proceedings.

    1. YEAH I HEAR YOU EVERYBODY GOES THROUGH 12 LAWYERS. IT’S A VERY NORMAL OCCURRENCE FOR PEOPLE TO GO THROUGH 12 DIFFERENT LAWYERS DURING DIVORCE PROCEEDINGS AND DWAYNE WADE CAN’T POSSIBLY BE A COMPETENT FATHER BECAUSE BLACK MEN ARE INCAPABLE OF BEING GOOD FATHERS OR PARENTS TO THEIR BIOLOGICAL CHILDREN.

      SHE’S DONE NOTHING TO BE CONSIDERED CRAZY AND DWAYNE SHOULD BE PUT IN JAIL FOR HIS PART IN MAKING PEOPLE INCLUDING THE JUDGE THINK THAT SHE’S MENTALLY UNSTABLE OR CRAZY. SHE CAN’T POSSIBLY BE CRAZY AND SHE SHOULD BE “MOTHER OF THE YEAR” FOR ALL OF THE WONDERFUL THINGS SHE’S DONE DESPITE HAVING DWAYNE AS A HUSBAND.

      HOW DARE US TO BELIEVE THE DOCUMENTED THINGS THAT HAVE BEEN EXPOSED ABOUT THIS WOMAN’S BEHAVIOR AND ACTIONS. DWAYNE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF HIMSELF FOR WANTING TO BE A FATHER AND RESPONSIBLE PARENT TO HIS BIOLOGICAL CHILDREN.

I love him but at some point it’s about self preservation.”

You know when your marriage cannot be saved and if that’s the case there is nothing wrong with dating.

  16. I DO NOT like this woman, and I DO see her as a gold digger. She entered this situation while this man was still married and fighting over the custody of his children. To most people, this is a big old red sign that a man is unavailable. If her man was some poor working class dude, still married and fighting his wife for custody of his children; she wouldn’t have anything to do with him. It IS all about the money and the fame.

    The real reason I cannot stand this broad is because every time she get’s bad press, she trots out her rape story. She has done this quite a few times. I’m sorry, but rape is not a joke, and something used as a bargaining tool to make folks forgive the other rancid shit you are doing.

    Another reason I cannot stand her is because she is one of those folks who went to party the day Whitney died, and whose body was still on the premises. Some people who went, decided to forgo the red carpet in honor of Whitney. She was one of the people cheesing and pimping on down the red carpet. I cannot stand her.

  21. It is rumored that this relationship stemed from an affair while DWade was still married. To be on the front of magazine covers together and flaunting this bitch around in public is str8 WRONG. Gabby was screwing this man while he was still married, she just sat her sneaky ass in the background. now that he’s divorced it’s open season to rub “this relationship” in Siovaughn’s face. I hope they both get waht’s coming. Just like Angelina HoLee will, AKeys, Fantasia and every other married Ho screwing around out here.
