Dwyane Wade celebrated girlfriend Gabrielle Union’s 41st birthday this week in a big way, by giving her a ring. The couple, who have been together for several years, partied in Miami Tuesday night following Wade’s opening game with the Miami Heat, who beat the Chicago Bulls 95-107.

While it was not an engagement ring, Wade gave Union something almost as prized, her very own championship ring. Wade and the Heat received their rings earlier that day at American Airlines Arena. The Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs in the 2013 NBA Finals. While she partied at Hyde, “Wade walked in with a gift-wrapped box, opened it with her and put it on her finger,” a source told the New York Post's Page Six. “He was there for under five minutes.” Union later headed to a surprise dinner at Catch Miami.

Meanwhile Union recently proved she still has got it going on. Wade’s girlfriend posted bikini photos on Instagram, showing off a slim and toned body. Her photo captions read, “Just smile ... Kills em everytime #ItsNeverThatSerious #40.” Union looked the age of her NBA-player boyfriend, who is 31.

Wade and the Miami Heat are trying to become NBA champions for the second year in a row. They currently have two championship titles. They defeated the Dallas Mavericks 4-2 in 2006.
