Gabrielle Union Poses for Steamy Bathroom Selfies with Husband Dwyane Wade on Instagram

If there's one thing we've learned from Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade, it's how to ring in a milestone birthday.

Wade recently celebrated the big four-oh and marked the occasion on Instagram—but not before giving fans a glimpse of his "pre-birthday" antics with Union. Just a few hours before the big day, the couple shared a trio of steamy bathroom mirror selfies to their IG profiles, featuring them both in a NSFW pose. While the NBA star donned nothing but a white towel around his waist, Union opted for a silky red top with black lace. The caption read, "Pre Birthday Behavior… 40." And for good measure, Union also left a suggestive comment, including face with tongue emojis and a smirking emoji.

In the post, Wade strikes different poses while standing behind his wife, who's seen making silly faces. In the comments, one follower wrote, "Sooo, y’all just not gonna age, huh? Just looking 20 forever." Another fan gushed, "These pics are so cute!"

To celebrate Wade's birthday, Union shared a romantic video set to Snoh Aalegra's "Find Someone Like You." Not only does it feature clips of their best moments together, but it also includes rare throwbacks from Wade's childhood. The You Got Anything Stronger? author wrote, "Happy birthday baby!!!! May the joy, the laughter, the friendships, the love, and the adventures continue on in this next stage of life. I’m grateful I get to do life with you. Ten toes down!!! #40."

Wade then commented, "Wow! I just cried. This was beautiful. I love loving you."

This isn’t the only time the happy couple treated fans to a saucy bathroom pic. To celebrate his 39th birthday in 2021, he shared a snap of himself in the nude, with ​​Union posing in front of him with a robe on. And understandably, his kids were not thrilled.

Dwyane's 18-year-old son Zaire commented, "This isn't what i wanted to wake up to," and 13-year-old Zaya said, "Ayooooo chill, I just got on."

If we had to guess, we'd say the kids are somewhere shielding their eyes from these steamy bathroom pics as we speak...
