It was a precious moment neither of them will ever forget.
But just in case, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade have an adorable picture taken right after the Miami Heat player got down on bended knee and asked for his longtime girlfriend’s hand in marriage.
In the touching picture taken last night at the Christmas party for Dwyane’s basketball team, Gabrielle is holding on to her new fiance’s head and pulls him close to her. You can’t see their faces properly, but we are pretty sure the happy couple were either laughing or crying tears of joy!
They announced their engagement on Twitter, with the actress showing off her huge sparkly rock to her more than 2 million followers with the caption, “Soooooo this happened! #Yes”

Dwayne also posted the picture on his Instagram with the adorable caption, “She said yes!”
Soon after, congratulations notes began to flow in from other Heat teammates and their spouses. 31-year-old Dwyane added that he was "in the giving mood" and the same night presented all his teammates with green blazers that looked like the ones given out to winners of the Masters golf tournament.

Gabrielle also joked today on Twitter that her hands were far from engagement-ring ready as she had no idea her beau was going to pop the big question, writing, "And yes my hands were ashy...And yes my nails aren't done...I was truly caught off guard but happy..."

This will be the second marriage for both the bride and the groom. The "Bring It On" actress, 41, was married to football player Chris Howard from 2001-2006.
Dwyane, who won a gold medal as part of the US Olympic Basketball Team at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, was previously married to his high school sweetheart, with whom he has two sons. Gabrielle has been a hands-on stepmom to the boys and they often go on vacation together.
