Gabrielle Union has made Dwyane Wade's week!

The Miami Heat All-Star's girlfriend threw him a huge birthday bash to celebrate his 30th at the Setai Hotel in South Beach.

Usher, T.I, Rick Ross, Common, Kelly Rowland, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Udonis Haslem, Alonzo Mourning and Pat Riley joined the party with special celebrity performances. The night culminated with Rowland serenading D-Wade with a seductive Happy Birthday, the Huffington Post reports.

In addition to the hot birthday bash, D-Wade was given a $230,000 2012 McLaren MP4-12C from a local car dealership as well as a vintage 1982 bottle of Dom Perignon and a diamond-encrusted Hublot 3000 watch. All for free.

Sports fans may wonder how D-Wade has lucked out with a lavish party and extravagant gifts to embrace his 30s. But, who is his girlfriend, Gabrielle Union?

Union, 39, is an American actress and model. She is best known for her role as the lead cheerleader opposite Kirsten Dunst in Bring It On.

Union and D-Wade were featured on the February 2012 cover of Essence magazine. The pair has been together for three years.

When asked if the couple has plans to marry, Wade said they are holding back.

We're not rushing it, Wade, a 29-year-old NBA player, told the magazine. Both of us have been married before, and we understand that if we choose to marry again, we want it to be right.

Wade was previously married to Siovaughn Funches and has two sons, Zaire, 9, and Zion, 3, from the marriage. Union was married to NFL star Chris Howard from 2001 to 2006.

We both took failing at marriage hard, Wade explained. The next time it's gotta be forever.

Union is also taking time to focus on her career. She is currently working on an upcoming romantic comedy, Good Deeds, with Tyler Perry. In the past, she has also played roles like Syd in Bad Boys II and Dr. Courtney Ellis on City of Angels.

When it happens, it's going to be something that only our friends and family knows about, the 39-year-old actress told Essence. That is, unless the E! Network comes up with the right number, of course.

Take a lot at these pictures of D-Wade's girlfriend, Gabrielle Union.
