Sultry actress Gabrielle covers the current issue of Miami's trendy Ocean Drive magazine. Inside, she discusses her life with longtime boyfriend, NBA star Dwyane Wade, and the fact that she's not entirely sure whether she wants to be bothered with kids (Dwayne's or her own).
She obviously doesn't feel very secure in her relationship with Dwyane -- despite their outward appearance of affection. We know how easily PDAs can be faked. But the most interesting part of the interview was the fact that Gabby is keeping her house in California -- just in case.
OCEAN: On keeping her house in California:
GABRIELLE UNION: “[It has been] great because I have my own career and life elsewhere, I have a home I paid for with my own money, and I need to be able to nurture that as well.”
On life with Dwyane Wade in Miami:
“D and I have a life together, too. I love my life in Miami, I can’t imagine functioning without both, I love the design district, I love Midtown, I love what’s happening downtown now. I can be at People’s Bar-B-Que or Sustain or Prime One Twelve, and I’m comfortable. It’s rare for me to feel that level of freedom. Miami represents joy for me.”
On starting a family:
“I was never someone who thought about having kids – 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. I don’t do anything impulsively, so more toward the five years out than the one-year.”
How she feels when she’s away from Miami:
“A week away is pretty much it for me. When I land in Miami, I feel like I’ve been holding my breath and am finally exhaling. I can breathe. I feel accepted, welcomed. I feel like I can be my true self, the woman I always aspired to be… More in Miami than any other place.”
