MIAMI — The beautiful people have descended on South Florida again, this time in the form of actress Gabrielle Union and her husband Dwyane Wade, shooting guard for the Miami Heat (and sworn nemesis of spellcheckers everywhere)!
Wade, 36, has only just returned to Miami after a brief stint with the Chicago Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Union, 45, posted snaps of the pair on Instagram over the weekend as they enjoyed the Florida weather and social climate.
Clad in swimwear, Union and Wade showed off their beach-bods in the pictures. Union wore a blue-and-white striped bikini suit that left very little, indeed, to the imagination. Wade was decked out in dark blue swim trunks and a beige panama hat, his pro-athlete build on full display.
As it happens, Union’s dance card for the weekend was full one: She also attended the Miami Open with fellow NBA wives Faith Haslem and Alexis Stoudemire on Saturday, posting images of that get-together on Instagram as well.
For the tennis outing, Union wore a Veronica Beard dress under a beige Romeo Hunte jacket. The actress rounded out the ensemble with a pair of white tennis shoes as she shared glasses of champagne with her gal-pals.
It was exactly the sort of shindig one would expect from Union, who entitled her autobiography (released last October) We’re Going to Need More Wine.
‘Writing my book, We’re Going To Need More Wine, was therapeutic,” Union said of the process, “whether I was talking about sexual assault, failed marriages, or finding joy in being my authentic self. Acknowledging you’re in pain is the first step.”
Union’s personal journey seemed to be on the right track this weekend, as she was all-smiles in the series of pics.
“I feel a responsibility to be a decent human being to everyone and accountable for my actions,” the actress has said of her life philosophy. “I want to leave every room I enter brighter than how I found it.”
Fortunately for the South Florida community, it appears Union is going to be bringing her positivity back to Miami!
