  1. Gabriel Union’s husband is Dwayne Wade not Dwayne Reid. Dwayne Wade was a wonderful basketball player and he and Gabriel have a few streaming commercials on tv where she beats him in a race–he is a super athlete and these are good commercials….for a power drink I think. He retired before the pandemic and I bet he is super happy about that decision.
