On Saturday, NBA star Dwyane Wade proposed to girlfriend Gabrielle Union, but he did not do it alone. After dating for several years, the 31-year-old enlisted the help of his two sons, Zion, Zaire, and his nephew, Dahveon, to help with the special moment.

On the big day, Union was helping out around the house, when suddenly, 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 Sunday.

When Union turned around, Wade was on one knee. "Just a regular Saturday," Wade said. "My kids were involved in it. We asked her to marry all of us, not just me. We're a package deal, so it was cool." After the shocked actress said “Yes,” he placed a stunning 8.5 carat diamond ring on her ring finger.

"I kind of know my lady," Wade said about the jewelry. "I know she's simple, but at the same time, I just wanted the rock to kind of speak for itself and not do too much with the diamonds. I think it's a simple ring, but it's nice. It was nicely done ... it's timeless."

Wade spent three months finding the perfect ring for his fiancé. This will be the second marriage for both. Wade’s teammate, LeBron James, expressed his happiness for the couple, after he recently got married himself to high school sweetheart Savannah Brinson.

"It took a lot for him to do it," said James. "But I think Gab is perfect for him. I think D-Wade is perfect for Gab. For them to be at one now and for their whole family to come together, man, I think it's amazing. It's another step for him. I thought it was pretty cool. I'm all for it. I'm happy for them."
