Love looks so good on Gabrielle Union!
Gabby covers the 11th anniversary issue of Vegas magazine looking happier than ever. Well, when you have a movie sequel coming out soon (Think Like A Man Too) , filming season 2 of your hit TV show (Being Mary Jane) and a wedding in the fall, how could you not be smiling from ear to ear?
The future Mrs. Wade opens up to the mag about hitting rock bottom, her future step sons and wedding dresses!
On “Groomzilla” Dwyane Wade and Saying Yes to Multiple Dresses
“D’s very involved in every detail. My dude is having a princess moment. 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. That’s the joy of getting married to a man who loves clothes and wardrobe changes: You can have more than one dress.”
On Feeling Like an Outsider and Hitting Rock Bottom
“I felt like I had to become a chameleon,” she says, acting one way with her white friends and another for people in her community. “Even as a popular girl, I was always looking through the window and very afraid of being exposed. I just wanted to assimilate and fit in.”
The Family She Didn’t Plan For But Can’t Imagine Living Without
“We were at the construction site in Miami where we’re building our dream home—aka the money pit,” she says. “I was wearing my Prada combat boots, no makeup, and D had a videographer recording the whole thing. 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. 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. 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.”
