Forget the starry-eyed romance. Gabrielle Union says she plans to marry NBA star Dwyane Wade with an open heart – and an iron-clad prenup.
“The biggest difference between this and the last marriage will be a prenup – at my insistence,” she bluntly told Hall as the audience giggled. “The reality is, I’ve never seen Dwyane balance a checkbook.”
Wade, 32, proposed to Union in December after presenting her with an eye-popping engagement ring. Two months later, it appears wedding planning is in full-swing (she even cops to adhering to a porn diet to stay in shape), and Union vows it won’t be anything like her first nuptials.
“The last time, I just wrote checks,” she admitted. “I was working, I had a wedding planner, and I just showed up and was like, ‘Ooh, that’s nice. Who picked that out?’ ”
