She’s already said that she and basketball beau Dwyane Wade aren’t in any rush to walk down the aisle, but is motherhood in the cards for actress Gabrielle Union?
“I was never someone who thought about having kids,” the Good Deeds star tells Ocean Drive in its February issue. “I mean, they’re great in theory, but I never imagined having one myself.
Maybe over the next five years I could wrap my brain around becoming a mother and what that would mean in terms of sacrifice and dedication,” she continues.
In the meantime, Gabrielle is enjoying spending time with Wade’s sons Zaire and Zion, of whom the Miami Heat star was awarded sole “care custody, and control” in 2011.
They may be a team off the court, but Gabrielle says that she’s in no way intimidated by Dwyane’s All-Star status. When the couple plays basketball together, she definitely brings it!
“I don’t have a half-assed switch — it’s either full-out or we’re playing H-O-R-S-E,” says Union of her competitive spirit. “So I’m likely to get a black eye or bust my nose or roll around scrambling for the ball and get court burns.
“In fact, I had a little slip the day before the Ocean Drive shoot, and showed up with this massive scab on my elbow,” shares Gabrielle. “I’m going to guess that they had to airbrush that one out!”
