Dwyane Wade was spoiled rotten during his 30th birthday celebration that took place this past weekend in Miami. To kick off the special occasion, his mother Jolinda threw him a birthday brunch at the W Hotel in South beach. It was during the brunch that D Wade received the biggest surprise of the day when his grandmother Willie Mae Morris arrived. At 91 years old, she flew on a plane for the first time to attend the event.
Later that night, Gabrielle Union joined D Wade on the red carpet at his official birthday bash held at Mynt Lounge. While there, Dwyane was showered with high priced gifts that included Dom Perignon 1982 Vintage, a Hublot King Power Unico Gold Pave watch and a 2012 McLaren MP4-12C, priced at over $230 grand. Celebrity guests spotted at the bash included Rick Ross, Common, Lebron James, Usher, Tiny and TI, Kelly Rowland, Lil Duval and more.
Miami Heat star ensures the addition of a ring in 2012
It seems that Miami Heat superstar LeBron James is getting a head start on his first ring.
James got engaged last night to longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson at a private dinner at the newly renovated Shelborne Hotel on Miami Beach. The couple have been dating since high school and have two boys together – LeBron Jr. (7 years old) and Bryce (4).
James proposed a day after celebrating his 27th birthday with a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves and helping the Heat to a 4-0 start to the NBA season.
Plenty of congratulations came from friends via Twitter all night long.
“Happy for my brother @KingJames and sis @SavannahRB on their engagement!!! Extremely happy for them and the good times to come,” wrote Clippers point guard Chris Paul.
Heat team owner Micky Arison: “Congrats to Lebron. @KingJames and Savannah so happy 4 u guys.”
LaLa Vasquez, wife of NBA star Carmelo Anthony: “CONGRATS are in order!! 2012 has already come in w/a BANG!! Congrats to @KingJames and @SavannahRB on their engagement!! We love u guys!!”
The private dinner that didn’t get underway until after 11:30 p.m. and was hosted by Remy Martin V. Enjoying the spirit of choice that night were Jessica White, rapper Nas, Queen Latifah, actress Gabrielle Union, Gloria James (LeBron’s mom) and Heat teammates Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
James’ boys enjoyed French fries (which were not on the menu), and James kept stepping away from the table to spend one-on-one time with his kids, and immediately picked up his kids and swung them around following the proposal.
James also had his birthday cake present. Devine Delicacies, who made the cake in half a day, describes the cake as “fit for a King [with] vanilla rum, edible 18k lion, and Swarovski Crystals.”
