Gabrielle Union Shares Wedding Plans and Joys of Becoming a Stepmom

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are getting closer to saying "I do" and in her fashion shoot with Vegas magazine, the actress shared some more wedding details, becoming a stepmom, and realizing what makes her happy. The Think Like a Man Too star also discussed the differences between her character Kristen's nuptials in the film and her upcoming one with Wade. Not only will her bachelorette party "be more top-secret," but the wedding will also be a more intimate affair.

"Well, it will be smaller than the one in the movie, but it's definitely not toned down, per the wishes of my groomzilla. D's very involved in every detail. My dude is having a princess moment. Me? I did the wine tasting, and I've said yes to the dress. In fact, I've said yes to a few of them. That's the joy of getting married to a man who loves clothes and wardrobe changes: You can have more than one dress," she said.

Union, who will soon become an official stepmom to Wade's sons, said that the boys are as much a part of her life as her fiancé is. In fact, Wade called on his two sons and the nephew he's raising to help propose to Union last year.

"I went from no kids to D getting full custody, and the next day we had a full house. So it was instant. Our lives never skipped a beat," Union said. "When you're someone who goes from never having thought about birthing her own babies to a ready-made family that has immediate needs and wants and desires, your life takes a back burner. If I were lucky enough to have one come out of my body, then great, I'd be totally open to that. But D's kids are more than just part of the wedding. They are part of my life. They're a package deal." always gives you the latest fashion and beauty trends, tips and news. We are committed to bringing you the best of Black lifestyle and celebrity culture.
