Gabrielle and fiancé Dwyane Wade attend South Beach Battioke event in Miami Beach
They only got engaged on December 21, so it comes as little surprise that Gabrielle Union and her fiancé Dwyane Wade looked the picture of happiness on Monday night.
The couple attended the South Beach Battioke event which was held at The Fillmore in Miami Beach, Florida and was hosted by basketball player, Shane Battier and his wife Heidi.
The celebrity karaoke event allows attendees to get up close and personal with Heat players, coaches and executives, who all sang karaoke for a good cause.
Actress Gabrielle, 41, looked stunning in a lilac-coloured sleeveless dress which had a black zip detail running down the front.
She teamed the pretty number with a pair of jaw-dropping, black high strappy sandals – and she wore her hair down, in soft loose curls.
Her fiancé, Dwyane, 32, wore a T-shirt, grey trousers and metallic trainers. He completed the look with a black leather jacket, before changing into a ‘Heatles’ T-shirt to perform with his team mates.

Gabrielle’s engagement to Dwyane was tainted by revelations that he had fathered a secret love child, but the pair seem to have moved on from the drama.
And talking about the romantic proposal, Gabrielle said, ‘I was completely surprised,’ on Live With Kelly And Michael as she relived the romantic moment.
The actress revealed the Miami Heat basketball player popped the question with the help of his two sons Zaire, 11, and Zion, six (with ex-wife Siovaughn Funches) as well as his nephew, whom he raises.

Gabrielle said she was caught by surprise when the young boys asked her if they could do a presentation, before holding up signs saying, ‘Will you marry us?
Dwyane proposed with a 8.5 carat cushion cut diamond ring by jewellery store Jason of Beverly Hills. And according to reports the dazzling engagement ring is worth almost a million dollars.
Speaking about the Battioke event, a cheerful Gabrielle told 7 News, ‘It’s a win-win here, hanging out with our crazy friends and getting to support Shane and Heidi and their organisation.’
