Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union have sealed it with a rock. The Miami Heat player Dwayne proposed to his girlfriend, Gabrielle, who gladly accepted the offer. The proposal took place on Saturday and the news is currently being circulated around the web via social networking websites.

"She said YES!!!" posted Dwayne to his Twitter and Instagram accounts. He posted a photo of Gabriella wearing a huge diamond solitaire on the ring finger.

This is the second marriage for both Gabriella and Dwayne. The duo has not announced the date of the wedding as yet. They also did not release any official statements regarding the engagement that happened on Saturday night.

"The @MiamiHEAT Christmas party always brings great traditions and the BEST surprises," wrote Adrienne Bosh, wife of Heat player Chris Bosh, on Twitter.

"A special evening," tweeted Heat managing general partner Micky Arison.

Dwayne Wade proposed his long-time girlfriend Gabrielle before the party. They have been together for many years. It was speculated time and again that they can marry anytime soon. The rumours were strong because the Christmas cards had a return address sticker titled, "Wade-Union Family."

"Soooo this happened...#Yessss," wrote the actress on Instagram along with the picture of the giant engagement ring. The 8.5 carat cushion cut diamond ring is a stunner just like the wearer. Jason of Beverly Hills crafted the engagement for the couple.

The couple has been together since 2009.

"She makes my eyes sparkle," told Dwayne on "Oprah's Next Chapter" in 2013.

"The biggest time she makes my eyes sparkle is when Zaire (Dwyane's 11-year-old son from a previous marriage) comes home and homework is a little hard that day, so he's stressing, and she goes to the table with him and she sits down until he gets it... And at that time my heart is smiling a little bigger that day because I know her love is deeper than just me," added Dwayne.
