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.

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!
