Dwyane Wade Said He Can't Wait to Marry Gabrielle Union Again at 2019 ESPY Awards
Dwyane Wade gave a speech at the 2019 ESPY Awards in which he revealed that he cannot wait to marry his wife Gabrielle Union again.
Dwyane Wade was honored at the 2019 ESPY Awards, but his acceptance speech was all about paying tribute to his lovely wife, actress Gabrielle Union.
The celebrity couple was at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on July 11, 2019, where the recently retired Miami Heat star shared an award with fellow new retirees Lindsey Vonn and Rob Gronkowski.
“Before I start my speech, I have to say thank you to [New Orleans Saints quarterback] Drew Brees. Because of what you said to your wife onstage, my wife looked at me with a death stare, and said if I don’t say something up here, the car ride home is gonna be long.” Dwyane Wade
DWYANE WADE "PROPOSES" TO GABRIELLE UNION
Wade started his speech by wryly "thankingt" Drew Brees, who had told his wife Brittany in his speech that he fell more in love with her each day. At which point, Wade claimed, Union gave him "the death stare."
While the camera zoomed in on a laughing Union, Wade went on to tell her she looked incredible, and then he proposed all over again.
“I cannot wait ‘til five years from now until I get a chance to marry you again. It’s gonna be a little lower budget than the first one, but it’s all good,” he said.

DWYANE WADE - IN LOVE WITH HIS WIFE AND HIS FAMILY
