UPDATE-Gabrielle Union has been the talk of the town since celebrating her Miami Heat beau Dwyane Wade‘s 30th birthday party. But while Gabby may have stole the show from Wade his lavish birthday gifts were fighting for second place.
On Sunday night at Setai Hotel in South Beach Wade received a 2012 McLaren MP4-12C, a vintage 1982 bottle of Dom Perignon, and a diamond-encrusted Hublot 3000 watch. The $230K car was a gift to Wade from the luxury car brand.
Christy Cartaya, The Collection’s director of PR, told the Miami Herald, “It was a gift — Dwyane is our brand ambassador and spokesperson. We consider him part of our ‘family’.”
According to the Miami Herald, the “gift” was “designed by Wade in “Fire Black” with two tone “Saddle Tan/Carbon Black” leather interior. The one-of-a-kind 12C boasts custom alloy wheel center caps with Wade’s signature logo as well as a specialty “WADE” emblem for the rear, WADE Limited Edition side badges and dedication plates on the inside door panels that read “Hand assembled in the United Kingdom in recognition of Dwyane Wade’s 30th Birthday.”
Wow – the custom ordered vehicle was airlifted into a pool to be presented to Wade at the party. Wade’s party which included guest like Lebron James, Chris Bosh, Kelly Rowland, TI and others was just the icing on the cake from a special present he received earlier in the weekend.
According to Haute Living Wade’s mom and sister held an intimate brunch for Wade at the W South Beach Hotel. The big surprise was his grandmother, at 91 years old, boarding a plane for the first time to attend the vent.
“I got in at 6:45 am not knowing what I was [going to do] today, so I was very surprised. Seeing my grandma was the biggest and best surprise, especially since she got on a plane for the first time.” —Dwyane Wade
