Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are enjoying life. The power couple is on their #WadeWorldTour2022 and while aboard a yacht, Wade takes a bite out of Union’s booty. When you’re rich and good-looking and you do things like that it becomes news.
The vacation began a few days ago in the Mediterranean off the coast of Mallorca, the largest island in the Balearic Islands, which are part of Spain. Mallorca is the birthplace and home of tennis great Rafael Nadal.
Union has been posting photos and videos of their exploits, including: a spa day, date night, the couple tossing and catching a football in the sea, and snuggling on the boat.
Many of the couple’s famous friends like Jalen Rose and Aaron Paul have commented on Union’s Instagram posts.
The happiness that we see with Wade and Union wasn’t always guaranteed. In 2013 when the couple was dating, but experiencing trouble and on a break, Wade fathered a child with another woman.
“I had a child with someone else and I had to tell her. Hardest thing I’ve ever had to do is man up and tell Gabrielle Union that I’ve had a child with somebody else,” he says in the ESPN documentary ‘D. Wade: Life Unexpected.’ ET reports. “I couldn’t sleep. I wasn’t eating.”
This was a particularly tough moment for Union. She was diagnosed with a condition called adenomyosis in her 20s. It causes the tissue lining the uterus to grow into the muscular wall of the uterus. Because of this, Union has had several miscarriages.
“To say I was devastated is to pick a word on a low shelf for convenience. There are people — strangers who I will never meet — who have been upset that I have not previously talked about that trauma,” Union writes in her memoir, ‘You Got Anything Stronger.’ “I have not had words, and even after untold amounts of therapy I am not sure I have them now. But truth matters.”
The couple welcomed a daughter, Kaavia, born via surrogacy in 2018. But the road to that happy moment wasn’t smooth either. After another miscarriage Wade didn’t want to try again.
“‘You’ve done enough,’ he said. I looked at D with an instantaneous white-hot rage. Astonishment, really. I was fighting with my husband about what was best for my body? Did he really think that surrogacy and a baby was our chance to set it right? To rebalance?” Union recalls in her memoir.
“I said coolly, ‘You’re going to be the voice of reason now? Really? Really? Is that what we’re on today?’ He looked me in the eye. ‘As much as we want this baby, I want you,’ he said slowly. ‘We’ve lost too much in our relationship for me to be okay with encouraging you to do one more thing to your body and your soul.'”
Kaavia turns 4 in November and the Wade family is happy and healthy. In addition to Kaavia Union is stepmother to Wade’s two children from his first marriage to Siohvaughn Funches, and his nephew (sister’s son) whom he also raises.
