MIAMI (AP) — Fittingly, Dwyane Wade asking Gabrielle Union to marry him was a family affair.

When the Miami Heat star proposed to the actress on Saturday afternoon, inside the home that the couple is building, his nephew and two sons unfurled signs asking Union to marry them.

Bewildered, she turned to Wade and saw him on bended knee. An 8½-carat diamond sealed the deal.

Wade tells The Associated Press that the wedding is still not scheduled, but will happen this summer, probably in September. He says his oldest son and nephew knew about the plan for some time, and that he's thrilled he was able to pull off the surprise.
