There to promote her show Being Mary Jane, which had an awesome response on twitter last night, Gabby said she was completely surprised by D-Wade’s proposal. She flashed her beautiful smiled the entire time while telling story:
“I was completely surprised, him and the boys planned it completely as a family. We were just going to spend the day together, have a little bit of quality time… I’m completely clueless.
Dwyane’s like, ‘Do you want to do any make-up?’ I’m like, ‘No.’ So my nails aren’t done. We were literally going from (brunch) to our house, that is under construction, so I’m dressed to go to a construction site, not for anything exciting. So we do a little tour of the house. Me and (Dwyane) are upstairs, the boys are downstairs and the boys say, ‘We want to do a presentation for you’. I thought they were going to do a skit or a song or something, so me and Dwyane turn around… and they’re holding signs saying, ‘Will you marry us?’
I was like, ‘Aww,’ but the thing is they ask me all the time. So I was like, ‘This is embarrassing, now they’ve made signs.’ I turned to (Dwyane) and he’s down on one knee and he’s like, ‘Will you marry us?’ and I’m like, ‘Oh, you’re serious,’ and I’m like, ‘Of course,’ but the kids couldn’t hear me and they think I’m saying no… and I’m like, ‘No, no, yes,’ and they tear up the stairs (to congratulate us).”
Gabby also flashed her giant engagement ring as well. Do you need shades or nah? Being Mary Jane premiered on BET last night, Gabby was humbled by the love she received tweeting.
Yall the support is EVERYTHING! I am so grateful & humbled!! Thank you thank you thank you!!! #BeingMaryJane
