Smitten sweeties! The couple (pictured here at the Remy V New Year’s Eve dinner in Miami) dated for four years before getting engaged. “What you learn from divorce is you have to be incredibly honest, about what you want, what you need, and what your expectations are,” Union said in 2012. “As women, we’re sort of taught to go along, to get along, not cause any ruffles…but yeah, that got me divorced.”

Union expressed her love for Wade in a unique way — by wearing his face printed on her dress at an episode taping of America’s Got Talent.


November 2019

After it was reported on November 22 that Union was let go from America’s Got Talent after just one season — amid reports that she spoke out about the toxic work culture at the show — her husband took to Twitter to show his support. 

“’Men lie, Women lie, numbers don’t.’ Over this past year I’ve been approached by many people saying that my wife @itsgabrielleu is the main reason they’ve started watching #AGT or that they love her insight and sincerity on the show,” the athlete wrote on Twitter on November 27. “So, when I got the news that my wife was being fired—my first question was obviously why!? I am still waiting on a good answer to that question. But if anyone knows @itsgabrielleu or have heard of her you know she’s an advocate for our community and culture.” 

He continued by showing his partner some love writing, “As proud as I were of her being selected as a judge on #AGT— I am even more proud of her standing up for what she stands for and that’s US. So [cheers] to you @itsgabrielleu on not losing sight of the lessons we’ve talked about teaching our daughter and for kicking ass while you were on that platform. Number 1 judge on one of the biggest shows in the world.”
