Gabrielle Union Marries NBA Star Dwyane Wade

Christopher Polk/Getty Images for ESPY(MIAMI) — Dwyane Wade may be an NBA champion, but the basketball star’s biggest accomplishment yet may be tying the knot with the love of his life Gabrielle Union.

The Miami Heat icon, 32, and the actress, 41, were wed on Saturday night in Miami, according to People magazine.

Wade proposed to his muse last December by involving two of his sons — Zaire and Zion — and the nephew he’s been raising.

“I was completely surprised. Him and the boys planned it completely, as a family,” Union told Live with Kelly and Michael in January. “We were just gonna spend the day together, having a little quality time, went to brunch, I’m clueless.”

After the brunch in December, Union said, they went to visit their home, which was under construction at the time. The boys told the actress they had something to show her.

“Me and [Dwyane] turn around and they’re like, ‘OK, now!’ And they’re holding signs that say, ‘… Will you marry us?’” But the thing is, they ask me all the time, so I was like, ‘Oh, this is embarrassing! Now they’ve made signs!’” she said. “I turn to D like, ‘Here we go!’ and he’s down on one knee.”

And by saying “I do” this weekend, the rest is history!

“Sister Wives” Star Wins Case Against Polygamy Ban

TLC(SALT LAKE CITY) — Kody Brown, 44, and his four sister wives — Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn — can now have a legal marriage in their home state of Utah.

“It is with a great pleasure this evening that I can announce the final decision of United States District Court Judge Clarke Waddoups on the last remaining count in the Sister Wives case,” Brown’s attorney, Jonathan Turley, said on his blog.

The Browns, stars of the show Sister Wives, had been embroiled in a polygamy law case that had forced them away from their home. Turley said Waddoups had previously struck down “key portions” of the Utah polygamy law as unconstitutional, but that one item, Section 1883, remained.

“He has now ruled for the Browns in what is now a clear sweep on all counts,” he wrote about the section “that state officials (notably prosecutor Jeffrey R. Buhman) violated the constitutional rights of the Brown family in years of criminal investigation and public accusations.”

“With the earlier decision, families like the Browns can now be both plural and legal in the state of Utah,” he added. “The court specifically struck down language criminalizing cohabitation — the provision that is used to prosecute polygamists. … Judge Waddoups reaffirmed the independence of our courts and stood against open prejudice and hostility toward plural families.”

After the win was announced, Brown gave his lawyer a statement to post that read, “While we know that many people do not approve of plural families, it is our family and based on our religious beliefs. Just as we respect the personal and religious choices of other families, we hope that in time all of our neighbors and fellow citizens will come to respect our own choices as part of this wonderful country of different faiths and beliefs.”

Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes told ABC News via a statement his office is determining whether to appeal the ruling.

“The attorney general’s office is currently reviewing Judge Waddoups’ ruling of Brown v. Herbert and will make final determination of whether or not to appeal one or more of the issues in the decision within the coming weeks,” the statement read. “It is important to legally assess the ruling’s scope and how it will impact future litigation.”

Jennifer Aniston Opens Up About Not Having Kids

ABC/Randy Holmes(LOS ANGELES) — Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux aren’t worrying about whether they are going to have children.

“It’s not something that’s in our everyday life, quite honestly. It’s more questions that arise in a red carpet line or in an interview,” she told People magazine earlier this week.

She continued, “I just find it to be energy that is unnecessary and not really fair for those who may or may not [have children]. Who knows what the reason is, why people aren’t having kids. There’s a lot of reasons that could be, and maybe it’s something that no one wants to discuss.”

She added that whether she and her fiancé of two years have babies, it’s “everyone’s personal prerogative.”

Aniston, 45, this week also joined Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox on Jimmy Kimmel Live for a mini Friends reunion.

Beyonce Calls Blue Ivy ‘My Biggest Muse’

Eric McCandless/CBS ©2013 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved(LOS ANGELES) — Beyoncé rarely talks about her personal life.

In a new poem, however, she reflects on how her daughter has affected her life.

“It’s my daughter, she’s my biggest muse/There’s someone, we all find out soon/more important than ourselves to lose,” she wrote in a piece called Bey the Light for CR Fashion Book. “But for my daughter I dream a day/When no one roots for others to fail/When we all mean what we say.”

Beyoncé, 32, recently made headlines for delivering a show-stopping performance at the MTV Video Music Awards. For those kinds of shows, she wrote, she taps into her stage persona, Sasha Fierce — and it doesn’t stop there.

“Though we’re different as blue and red,” she wrote. “I’m not afraid to draw from her in performance, rifts, even in bed.”

The poem also touches on her deep connection with her late grandmother, the value she places on prayer and how she views her role as a performer.

“You call me a singer, but I’m called to transform/to suck up the grief, anxiety and loss of those who hear me into my song’s form,” she wrote. “I’m a vessel for all that isn’t right/for break-ups and lies and double-cross/I sing into that vessel a healing light.”
