The power couple were in Tanzania to celebrate Union’s birthday, but little did she know that Wade was planning a surprise party for her in Tanzania, the East African country known for its lush landscapes and crystal blue waters.
“I’m still processing the level of effort and planning that went into pulling off such an unbelievable 50th birthday party in Zanzibar Tanzania and keep the details a surprise from my nosy self,” Union wrote on Instagram. “I’m beyond grateful for all of my loved ones who flew around the world to celebrate with me.”
“How @dwyanewade @ronndarocksevents @dauniedaune got THE @lisalisall77 to come all this way to perform was unreal. Thank you Lisa for being so amazing to my Mom & reminding me that your childhood heroes can turn out to be as lovely as you imagined them. I’m just floating on gratitude and to know this is just our 1st stop on the #wadeworldtour2022 🌍 Edition, I’m the happiest seasoned gal around. 🇹🇿 #ScorpioSeason #BirthdayGirl 🎉🎂 #tanzania”
To celebrate his wife’s birthday, Dwyane posted throwbacks of Gabrielle and commented, “Happy birthday to my dream girl! We’re in Africa celebrating you as I type this. I’m forever grateful and in debt to the universe for choosing me to be your husband. Let’s keep making this love thing, do what we want it to do!”
The Teen Choice Award-winning actress and NBA championship winner wed in 2014 in Miami. They share a three-year-old daughter, Kaavia, and are the parents to Wade’s two sons and daughter: Zaire, 20; Zaya, 15, and Xavier, 8.
