We all wanna know. Thankfully, actress Gabrielle Union was kind enough to fill us in! The newly minted 47-year-old revealed her “secret” to looking totally ageless — and it turns out, her advice is actually 200 percent doable. So take notes, folks.
“Secret you ask … water, tequila, boundaries [and] an extra helping of accountability,” the brunette beauty wrote on a retweet congratulating her on her birthday with some sexy photos, adding a heart and arm muscle emoji. She even proudly hashtagged “#47” to commemorate the big day. Needless to say, the pics were absolutely stunning … and proved her tactics are totally working.
This wouldn’t be the first time Gab flaunted her incredible bod on social media. Back in May, the Bring It On star shared two sultry bikini shots taken by her hubby, Dwayne Wade. “46,” she captioned the photo shoot, reminding folks everywhere that you can be hot AF in your 40s. Her ~photographer~ husband was also behind the cam for another steamy bikini moment. This time, he captured a cute vid of her dancing in her bathing suit on a boat during their romantic trip to Greece, posted to her Instagram Stories at the time.
She even returned the favor and snapped a few vids of the retired NBA baller on the trip as well. “Gas ‘em UP!” YEAHHHHH. I’m his biggest cheerleader,” the proud mama captioned a video of the 37-year-old diving off a ship. Get you a partner who takes your IG photos on vacay, y’all.
Gabrielle and Dwayne got married back in 2014, and she became stepmom to the athlete’s three sons, Zaire, Zion and Xavier. Originally, she didn’t want kids but stepping into a mother role changed her perspective. The desire for children set the couple on the IVF path, which Gab spoke about back in 2017.
“I have had eight or nine miscarriages,” the actress told People at the time. “For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant — I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle or coming out of an IVF cycle.” Luckily, the couple found a solution that worked for them and welcomed their first daughter, Kaavia, via surrogate back in November 2018.
