Gabrielle Union is talking about her upcoming wedding with Miami Heat star Dwayne Wade. But she might not be talking about it in the way most brides usually do. She’s says she’s not the one who’s carried away about wedding plans. Instead, she’s calling out D. Wade as a groomzilla!
Union dished to VEGAS Magazine about the upcoming wedding and her ready-made family.
“Well, it will be smaller than the one in [Think Like A Man 2], but it’s definitely not toned down, per the wishes of my groomzilla,” she revealed. “D’s very involved in every detail. My dude is having a princess moment.”
She’s more chill about the upcoming nuptials.
“Me? I did the wine tasting, and I’ve said yes to the dress. In fact, I’ve said yes to a few of them,” she added.
But motherhood might be a little more hectic than her wedding. But she’s enjoying the growth in her family.
“I went from no kids to D getting full custody, and the next day we had a full house. So it was instant. Our lives never skipped a beat,” she said.
She revealed going from having no kids to a house full of them could be too much for some folks, but she loves her children.
“When you’re someone who goes from never having thought about birthing her own babies to a ready-made family that has immediate needs and wants and desires, your life takes a back burner,” she said.
“If I were lucky enough to have one come out of my body, then great, I’d be totally open to that. But D’s kids are more than just part of the wedding. They are part of my life. They’re a package deal,” she added.
But with a family, an upcoming wedding and a successful career, Union still makes mistakes, but it’s how she handles them.
“Still, I make mistakes,” she admitted. “And my life is in process. But I know certain things. I feel a responsibility to the people I work with. So I don’t do late. I don’t do bad attitude. I don’t do ‘Those eggs aren’t right.’ You don’t fall out. Come prepared. You be a decent human being. And it’s like Will Smith told me: ‘Family first.’ Nothing comes before family.”
