Christmas came early for actress Gabrielle Union.

Dwayne Wade proposed to his longtime girlfriend Saturday night with an 8.5 carat cushion cut diamond ring created by Jason of Beverly Hills. The ring is reportedly worth nearly $1 million.

They announced their engagement via social media. The Miami Heat star posted: "She said YES!!!" to his Twitter and Instagram account with a photo of Union wearing a stunning diamond ring.

This will be the second marriage for both.
