"I love loving you. 39 ??????"


The beautiful post garnered several reactions from the fans of the actress who trooped to the comments section, gushing and leaving birthday wishes for Wade.

The NBA star was also honored by his oldest child, Zaire, who shared a throwback photo of himself with Wade. The father-son duo appeared to be at a formal event as they both donned tuxedos.

The NBA star's big day could not have gone by without another tribute from his 13-year-old daughter Zaya. Taking to Instagram, she shared an adorable throwback father-daughter photo captioned:

Wade and Union walked down the aisle on August 30, 2014, in an amazing Florida ceremony. Ever since, their love has waxed stronger, with the two often showing each other off on social media.

Speaking to People last year, Wade opened up about his marriage to Union. He revealed what he believes to be the secret to their long-lasting bond.

The former NBA star attributed their successful marriage to the fact that they are always supporting each other. He added that despite their busy schedules, they always make time for each other.

With the duo's bond, it comes as no surprise that Union would spare no words in telling Wade just how much he means to her. These two are simply lucky to have each other!
