Jolinda Wade and Theresa Union prove that they are not only celebrity parents but women who know how to have a good time in an Instagram video.


Jolinda and Theresa, the proud parents of the celebrity couple, Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union, were seen in a video uploaded by Wade on Instagram effortlessly dancing to the music battle between R&B matriarchs, Patti LaBelle and Gladys Knight on Verzuz.

The video showed the two women in the living room, dressed casually and moving their bodies to the music battle playing on TV with their children cheering them on. Wade captioned the post with, "Mommy Wade & Mommy Union in here getting it!!!"

The video received over 100 comments from fans and friends alike who showered the women with their love and support. Earlier this year, Union showed her love and appreciation for her mother with a heartwarming message on Instagram.

[Wade] talked about his child, Zaya, and how the 13-year-old's journey to self-acceptance had helped him grow as a person.


Theresa, who turned 73 in April, was honored by her daughter, who described her mother in her caption as a truly selfless individual who deserved all the joy the galaxy had to offer.

Like his wife, Wade is similarly a proud child as his mother, Jolinda, finally conquered her fear of swimming after a whopping 51 years of trying.


The former "NBA" star posted an adorable picture of himself and his mother at a swimming lesson on Instagram and wrote about how his mother overcoming her fear was inspiring.

The 61-year-old woman truly is inspiring as she survived and persevered through her addiction to drugs and her imprisonment in 1994 for the possession of cocaine when Wade was still a child.


Wade also shares the inspiring trait of his mother. In an interview with "ET", he talked about his child, Zaya, who came out as being transgender and how the 13-year-old's journey to self-acceptance had helped him grow as a person. The former basketball player said:

"For me, it's always about being able to adapt and being able to learn, and always being able to grow."

He also mentioned how traveling with his wife and meeting various people taught him to keep his eyes, mind, and heart open.


Wade and Union began dating in 2009 and said their vows in 2014. The couple recently celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary with a couple of romantic messages on Instagram.

The former athlete and the actress had their first child, a daughter named Kaavia James, in 2018, and Union is the stepmother to Wade's three other children, Zaire Blessing Dwyane, Xavier Zechariah, and Zaya. He had Zaire and Zaya with his ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches, and Xavier with Aja Metoyer.
