Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are not letting Wade’s alleged cheating scandal impact their happiness. The NBA player celebrated his 32nd birthday aboard a yacht alongside his fiancée, friends and Heat teammates over the weekend in Miami.
The yacht, appropriately wrapped in his “Way of Wade” motif, was covered in a graphic black-and-white pattern, which matched Wade’s outfit. Union kept it simple and chic in a white sleeveless dress and black clutch.
Wade, who officially turns 32 on Jan. 17, posted photos of the extravagant event, including a touching photo of himself and Union looking lovingly into one another’s eyes.
"Ohhh what a night...early birthday bash for me in Miami on this amazing yacht.. #TeamWade and @liningusa know how to make a guy feel special. Thanks to all my teammates and EVERY1 who came out... Moments like this I'll never forget. 32yrs on this earth here I came. #thebetterversionofmecomingup [sic],” he wrote as the picture caption.
It has been quite a few weeks for the power couple, ever since Wade admitted to having a child with a woman other than his fiancée. His baby’s mother, Aja Metoyer, has allegedly been publicly bashing Wade and his relationship with the 41-year-old actress. She also accused Wade of cheating on Union, though the NBA star claimed he was on a break from the relationship when the child was conceived.
In his announcement, Wade said, "I had a time, a part in our break, in our pain and our hurt; a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son that was born healthy. This is something that my family knows and my now-fiancée worked through when we got back together, and understood that we wanted to continue our lives together and continue supporting our family and we’re going to do that … So I’m moving on.”
The couple began dating in 2009, but they took time apart earlier this year because of their busy schedules.
