Gabrielle Union may be facing a love child scandal associated with her fiancé Dwyane Wade, but you'd never know it from her recent interview! Speaking to Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan, Union still seemed to be in love with the NBA player. Union spoke at length about the proposal, avoiding talk about the son he fathered while the couple was on a break.
Who can forget the cute photo from his proposal? "I was completely surprised. Him and the boys planned it completely, as a family," she told Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan on Live with Kelly and Michael. Union recalls, "I should have known something was up when [Dwyane] was like, 'Are you gonna do your hair? Are you gonna put on makeup?' I'm like, 'To go to a construction site? No,'” she explains.
"Me and D turn around and they're like, 'OK, now!' And they're holding signs that say,' ... Will you marry us?' But the thing is, they ask me all the time, so I was like, 'Oh, this is embarrassing! Now they've made signs!'" she said. "I turn to D like, 'Here we go!' and he's down on one knee."
"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," Wade said during a press conference, as reported by the Sun Sentinel. "So I'm moving on." The mother of the child is 30-year-old Aja Metoyer, who gave birth to Wade’s third son, Xavier Zechariah in November.
The NBA player continued: "But, like I said, this is something, obviously, private for my family that we will continue to deal with as a family. But we have a blessing to the bloodline, to the Wade bloodline."
Union seemed to follow that plan very well in her interview on Live With Kelly and Michael, acting as though there were no problems in their relationship.
And on a more positive note, Union may have a baby of her own on the way. The actress' friends took note when she avoided alcohol at holiday events. “She was at a party, there was champagne everywhere, and she didn’t drink a drop,” a source close to Union told MediaTakeOut
“Gabby and her fiancé Dwyane have been open about having children, and now that a wedding is around the corner, now is as good a time as ever,” the source continued. Hopefully the couple have mended their differences and can continue building a family of their own!
