Gabrielle Union is already having quite a year, after her show “Being Mary Jane” debuted on BET Tuesday night and got rave reviews. Weeks earlier, NBA star Dwyane Wade proposed to her, after dating for several years.

On the big day, Union was helping out around the house, when Wade’s youngest son Zion held a sign with her name. His nephew Dahveon Morris had a sign saying "Will you," and his oldest son Zaire's sign read, "marry us?" Wade told the Associated Press in December.

News of their union has been marred, however, by reports that Wade admitted to having a child with a woman other than his fiancée. His baby’s mother, Aja Metoyer, has also allegedly been publicly bashing Wade and his relationship with 41-year-old Union. She also accused Wade, 31, of cheating on Union, though the NBA star claimed he was on a break when their child was conceived.

Now, it is rumored that Union is pregnant with Wade’s child, and due in the summer. Hollywood Life reports Union’s friends suspected she was pregnant when she chose to skip the alcohol at a recent get-together. “She was at a party, there was champagne everywhere, and she didn’t drink a drop,” a source says.

If she is pregnant, that would be fantastic news for the pair, especially after she admitted to Essence magazine in November that she is worried about her eggs. "I don't know if by now it’s a matter of 'want,'" she said, when a reader asked her how many children she wanted. "My eggs are like the thing Indiana Jones finds in the Temple of Doom, so I don't know how many my body can physically have. I'd be happy with one if that's what God blesses me with."
