Dwyane Wade says Gabrielle Union “raised the bar” with his early birthday gift

Dwyane Wade may be celebrating his 39th birthday on January 17, but that didn’t stop wife Gabrielle Union from spoiling him rotten a little early.

Over the weekend, the Bring It On alum gifted her husband a classic Mercedes Benz convertible.  The retired NBA star shared the sweet video of the exact moment his wife of six years surprised him with the shiny white luxury model on Sunday.

Wade’s priceless reaction was caught entirely on film.  His jaw drops when he first lays eye on his car and he starts to rush toward it, but he stops mid-run so he can double back and thank Union with a long kiss.

Wade, after opening the door and checking out the interior, then begins grooving happily next to his vehicle as his 18-year-old son Zaire, who’s filming, provides some hilarious commentary.

“One week before I turn 39 and @gabunion has already started with the surprises,” Wade praised in the caption. “She just raised the bar.”

He identified the vehicle as a “1988 classic,” with fans believing Union gifted him a Mercedes-Benz 560 series.  The NFL pro later shared proof on his Instagram and stories that he’s already taken his whip around for several cruises around the block.

Union also took to social media to share a new set of family photos in front of Wade’s surprise birthday gift.  

“Lil early birthday surprise for @dwyanewade,” the former America’s Got Talent judge captioned the photo of her, Wade and their smiling children dressed in white — matching the new car.

Union and Wade share two-year-old Kaavia James together and co-parent his three children from previous relationships — 13-year-old Zaya, seven-year-old Xavier and Zaire.
