First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes the baby in the baby carriage.
Newlyweds Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade already have the love and marriage part down. Are they now gearing up to welcome a bundle of joy? That’s what a few of the Think Like A Man Too actress’s Instagram followers began speculating in the comments section of her Throwback Thursday post from yesterday. In case you missed it, the 41-year-old beauty took to her IG page with a photo of herself and Dwyane on one of their date night adventures in New York City. In the photograph, she’s wearing a loosely fitted dress, which some assumed there was a baby bump hiding under. Though Gabby explained her loose dress in the photo’s caption, it did nothing to stop the questions.
“#tbt NY date night at Carbone’s in my new fave boots and hat… you ever wear “good eatin clothes” so you can be comfy when the gluttony kicks in… yeah… that,” she wrote.
“She definitely looks preggo,” wrote one follower.
“Preggo?” questioned another.
Once Gab caught wind of the comments, she was quick to shut them down before the rumors could even begin to take flight.
“I wore a big dress so I could eat…no baby bump…reading is fundamental kids… am I the only one that dresses so I could can pig out? Or does everyone just unbutton their pants after dinner like big mama??? Lmao…y’all are funny.”
Well, that’s that. I guess we’ll have to stay tuned to see whether or not the Wades decide to add to their clan. Gabrielle has expressed a desire for a child in the past, but stated that she’s not super pressed for it to happen.
How cute is this little man!? Those eyes are just so beautiful.
If you were picking your brain to find out who this little guy belongs to, we’ve got the answer: It’s Dwyane Wade’s son with Aja Metoyer.
Metoyer was pretty quiet on social media for most of the year after news broke about Wade having a child with her during a break from his relationship with Gabrielle Union, but she has popped back up on Instagram recently. The beauty has shared some new images of all her gorgeous children (she has two older daughters with actor/comedian Damon Wayans, Jr.), but we couldn’t help but swoon over Xavier Zechariah.
He will turn 1 in November and as you can see, he’s a strong mix of both his mother (the eyes are all hers) and his father.
When speaking of his baby boy at the beginning of the year, Wade had this to say:
“I had a time, a part in our break, in our pain and our hurt, a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son that was born healthy. So I’m moving on.
…I’ve always tried to show my importance in my kids’ lives and it doesn’t change now. So, I, my lady and my family have continued to move forward, and I think that’s evident with the ring and the proposal that I gave her, with our lives.”

“I Will Not Be Shamed”: Gabrielle Union Blasts People Who Think She Was A Fool For Marrying Dwayne Wade
“Why would you marry a man who cheated on you AND had a child with that side chick?? You deserve much better but I’m pretty sure that “money” is a major contributing factor to your decision.”
“Damn…dwayne knocks up a brawd and you took him back Lmaoooo”
“it must suck to have people all over the world laughin at you lol”
“sorry, but once a cheat, always a cheat. he’ll treat her the way he treated his first wife. she’ll get played, she can count on that.”
Well, Union isn’t having it. On Instagram yesterday she posted a beautiful photo from her wedding. In the caption she had a message for those who don’t have anything positive to say about her man and her marriage:
Last month, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade tied the knot during their highly anticipated wedding ceremony in Miami. The high-profile couple has since decided to share photos from their “epic” honeymoon with fans and social media followers. During their vacation, the lovebirds ventured to Tanzania and the Maldive Islands.
“When the Indian Ocean is ya swimming pool… You dive in! But first… Play that @beyonce baby,” Gabbby bragged in one post.
“Since I’m on my honeymoon and I’m missing fashion week in NY. I thought i would show you guys how I dress to go on a safari. It’s never a dull moment when @lawfullady is your stylist. #dopeselfie #manimfeelingmyself #imbestdressonthissafari #illmarrymetoo @zmalannewyork,” Dwyane wrote in another.
They look like they had a blast.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the finest baller of them all? That’s what we took to L.A. streets to find out when we had Kel Mitchell stop random women and ask them to vote yay or nay or the biggest names on the basketball court. From J.R. Smith to Tyson Chandler, Kevin Durant, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul, let us know whether you consider these top notch athletes hotness or hot mess when it comes to the looks department.
Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union went out of their way to keep #theWadeUnion a secret. But we’ve managed to sleuth out a few exciting facts about their big Labor Day event. And you’ll be surprised by what we found out.
Dwyane Wade Was In Charge of the Planning
Gabrielle Union told the New York Times, “He realized that I was trying to turn it into a frat party with K-cups and beer pong, and he took over.” So Dwyane took over “85%” of the planning to give the wedding a classier vibe: “I was thinking ‘Harlem Nights’ and Eddie Murphy, classic movies and the way they dressed.”
How cute are the Wades!?
We told you that Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union tied the knot this past Saturday, and now they’ve decided to share a new image from their big day with their fans. On both of their Instagram accounts, the couple posted a beautiful image of themselves with Wade’s sons, Zaire and Zion (infant Xavier wasn’t in this photo, nor is it clear if he was at the ceremony), as well as Wade’s nephew Dahveon Morris. The two captioned the image with “#TheWadeUnion,” a hashtag they used throughout their big weekend.
Union also shared a beautiful shot of herself in her custom Dennis Basso gown and had this to say about her big exclusive gown:
“Thank you thank you thank you @DennisBasso for helping me design THE most perfect gowns for the most special night of my life… So grateful… So happy “
Again, the couple tied the knot in front of family and friends in Miami, as men were instructed to wear black, and the women invited were asked to match the bride in white. Wade proposed back in December, and this is the second marriage for both. Wade was married to Siohvaughn Funches from 2002 to 2010, and Union was married to NFL player Chris Howard from 2001 to 2006. Congrats!
Earlier today, we told you that Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade reportedly went as far as to have their wedding guests sign confidentiality agreements to keep details about the ceremony from leaking to the media. But it looks like Gabby’s bestie, Essence Atkins, never received the hush-hush memo.
Hip Hollywood recently caught up with the “Haunted House 2″ actress, who revealed that she and her husband, Jaime Mendez, will be officiating the couple’s ceremony this weekend.
“I’m not feeling a way about [Gabby not having bridesmaids] because I’m officiating the ceremony,” Essence revealed.
“My husband and I are officiating the ceremony,” she continued. “My husband did a ceremony for Alfonso Ribeiro a couple of years ago and they asked us to do it together so we are officiating.”
The wife and mother went on to say that Gabby’s ceremony will actually be her first time officiating a wedding
“This will be my first time. No pressure! No pressure whatsoever!”
While I have to admit that this news is extremely random, having your bestie officiate your wedding ceremony sounds like it has the potential to be pretty cool. I also can’t blame Gabby for wanting someone who knows her personally to officiate, considering that the reverend at her last ceremony didn’t even pronounce her name correctly.
“The pastor who married me—the first time—he didn’t even get my name right,” Gabrielle told Arsenio Hall back in February. “Yeah, no. He refused to come to the rehearsal dinner and then didn’t say my name correctly. I even pronounced my own name incorrectly so this should’ve been a sign that it wasn’t gonna work.”
Watch Essence’s interview below. Thoughts?
Last month, we told you that Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade had quite a few rules in place for friends and relatives lucky enough to make the cut for their August 30 wedding ceremony.
“To our family and friends,
We are looking forward to sharing this very special day with you. For the comfort of our guests and to protect our privacy, no cameras or cell phones will be permitted at the party. Also, photo IDs will be required for all guests. Gentlemen, formal attire in black; ladies, we would love to see you in formal white.
Transportation to and from the party venue will be provided from the [redacted]. Buses will depart promptly at 9:45pm from the North-North entrance of the hotel; please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to departure to process through security. If you choose to drive yourself, please call [number omitted] hours prior to the event at [address omitted] for directions to the venue (located approximately 45 to 50 minutes south of South Beach). Once on-site, you should allow at least 30 minutes to process through security at the venue.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation. See you soon!
Love, Gab and Dwyane”
Now, it appears that the bride-and-groom-to-be have taken things a step further to protect their privacy as well as the privacy of their A-list guests. According to TMZ, the pair will also be handing out confidentiality agreements, which must be signed by all relatives, friends, vendors and caterers or they will not be allowed to enter the venue. Gabby and Dwyane appear to be dead serious about the agreement too. If reports are correct, then there will be a hefty financial penalty imposed upon anyone who runs their mouths after signing the agreement.
I understand Gabrielle and Dwyane wanting to protect their privacy and not wanting their ceremony to be a media circus, but good Lord.
His wedding is just days away, but somehow, Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife, Siohvaughn Wade, are still making headlines together.
According to TMZ Sports, the marital home once shared by the former couple and their children is facing foreclosure. Apparently, a payment has not been made on the $225,000 home for quite some time now. Siohvaughn still lives in the home and Dwyane’s people are saying that she received the home (and responsibility for the mortgage payments) in the divorce settlement. However, Siohvaughn eventually stopped making those payments, which is why the home is now facing foreclosure.
It’s probably only a matter of time before Siohvaughn comes forward demanding money from Dwyane to catch up on payments, but the Miami Heat star’s attorney argues that he is in no way responsible for the home. The bank sent a foreclosure notice regarding the South Holland home on Aug. 11
