Before her new BET series Being Mary Jane invaded small screens Tuesday (Jan. 7), actress Gabrielle Union stopped by ABC HQ to chat with Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan on Live! With Kelly and Michael and discussed the mushy story behind her engagement to longtime beau/ NBA baller Dwyane Wade.
“I was completely surprised. Him and the boys planned it completely, as a family,” she said. “We were just gonna spend the day together, having a little quality time, went to brunch, I’m clueless.”
It gets better. “Me and D turn around and they’re like, ‘OK, now!’ And they’re holding signs that say, ‘… Will you marry us?'” But the thing is, they ask me all the time, so I was like, ‘Oh, this is embarrassing! Now they’ve made signs!'” she said. “I turn to D like, ‘Here we go!’ and he’s down on one knee.”
Despite the paternal controversy surrounding D-Wade’s newborn son, the two still seem crazy in love. Catch Kelly and Gab joke about her ring’s height below.
