Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union Are Engaged! (See the 8.5 Carat Ring)

Christmas came a few days early for actress Gabrielle Union when Miami Heat player Dwyane Wade proposed on Saturday! They’ve been one of our favorite celebrity couples ever since they started dating in 2009, which is why they made our list celebrity engagement predictions for 2014. Looks like he just couldn’t wait until the new year! We can’t blame Dwyane, no one could keep such a gorgeous ring a secret for very long. The sparkly stunner is a whopping 8.5 carat cushion cut solitaire designed by Jason of Beverly Hills. Gabrielle Union joins celebs from Kim Kardashian to Kelly Rowland and Katie Couric in the cushion cut engagement ring trend. See photos of the proposal and ring below!

Dwyane Wade’s teammate Lebron James got married this summer and we’re STILL talking about it, so here’s hoping that Dwayne and Gabrielle’s wedding is just as over-the-top and fabulous (but hopefully not as secretive!).
