Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade celebrated his 30th birthday Sunday night, and girlfriend Gabrielle Union made it a night to remember.
Union threw her man a private birthday party at the Setai Hotel in South Beach near Miami. According to The Los Angeles Times, the list of partygoers included Rick Ross, T.I., Usher and Common. Wade’s teammates and friends also joined the party, including LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Udonis Haslem, Alonzo Mourning and Pat Riley.
The Huffington Post reported that singer Kelly Rowland serenaded the basketball star with her own twist on the “Happy Birthday” song. T.I., Ross, and Common also got on stage for surprise performances.
According to the LA Times, aside from the lavish party, Union gave Wade a 2012 McLaren MP4-12C, a vintage bottle of Dom Perignon, and a Hublot 3000 watch, covered in diamonds.
Wade’s new watch wasn’t the only thing to shine at the party. His towering birthday cake was covered in silver confection with a bowtie, suspenders, and top hat.
Union and Wade were featured on the cover of the February issue of Essence. While the two seem to be seriously enjoying their time together, the couple told the magazine that they are not planning on rushing into a marriage any time soon.
Both Union and Wade have been previously married.
