Matchmaker Alert! Jackée Harry Introduced Gabrielle Union & Dwyane Wade

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are one of the cutest celebrity couples out there, and we apparently have Jackée to thank for their… well, union!

The TV vet revealed in a chat with People that she’s responsible for Dwyane and Gabrielle’s relationship, and that she knew they were perfect for one another right away.

After discussing how she set up Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown, Jackée announced, “I introduced Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union too.”

According to the “Sister, Sister” star, they asked her to make the match, and once she went through with it, she saw chemistry “immediately.” “It was sparks. It was instant, I think it might have been love at first sight.”

Gabrielle has spoken about her initial impression of her now-hubby in the past, telling James Corden in 2017 that it wasn’t exactly love at first sight. She credits Patti LaBelle with convincing her to give him a try!

She revealed, “He's a bit younger than me, so it felt like he was 12. He was super-shy and quiet.”

Gabrielle recalled how Patti told her to move on from her current flame, advising,“Girl, you better ditch that zero and get you a hero. It was Miss Patti who nudged me in that direction.”

She added, “None of it felt, yeah, this is the guy that I’m going to spend the rest of my life with.”

Clearly, that feeling evolved! Speaking of Dwyane and Gabrielle, the adorable pair are living their best lives on a getaway in a Greece at the moment, which Gab has dubbed #WadeWorldTour2019 on social media. The “island hopping” twosome shared some beachy pics on the gram over the weekend, as they enjoyed some fun in the sun.
