Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade created the perfect products to keep you moisturized this summer. On Monday, May 16, the actress zoomed in on the retired athlete and his ashy hands in a promo video for their brand, The Proudly Co. The co-founders created a sustainable baby care line for melanated skin tones, according to their site, with oils, wipes and other products.
“When ya big baby ashier than the lil baby,” Union captioned the video on Instagram.
The visual opens with a close and shocking shot of Wade’s ashy knuckles. His wife was so disgusted by his hands she grabbed his hands and started moisturizing them. The “L.A.’s Finest” star welcomed her husband’s soft touch only after he moisturized his hands, shoulders, and legs. She continued over the photo telling fans, “Moisture folks. Big babies too.” The video ends with their 3-year-old daughter, Kaavia James Union Wade, holding the couple’s skin care products while yelling for her “Daddy.”
Fans in the comments were overwhelmed with laughter watching another fun-filled family moment from the Union-Wade family. Many couldn’t believe how ashy Dwyane’s hands were.
“Need from head to toe.”
“Ms ma’am said ‘elbows’ in the ‘you ain’t done yet’ tone.”
“He got more ash than an ashtray during a card game in the 80s.”
“It’s the end for me! ‘Daddy, you been using my stuff?’ lol.”
Dozens called Wade “Dennis Rodman 3.0…mini-me” after noticing the shiny gold nail polish on his manicured nails.
“It’s the nails for me,” said one person while another said, “Y’all just wanted us to see that polish…anyway what’s the brand and name of it? Cause yeah [fire.]”
A third jokingly said, “I wonder do they all go as a family to the nail salon.”
