Gabrielle Union says she and husband Dwyane Wade split ‘everything 50/50’ in their household

Gabrielle Union is opening up about her family’s finances.

The 50-year-old revealed in a recent Bloomberg interview that her household splits everything “50/50.” Union is married to former NBA player Dwyane Wade, 41, with whom she shares 4-year-old daughter Kaavia.

Union is also a stepmother to Wade’s three children from previous relationships. The former professional basketball player shares two kids − Zaire, 21, and Zaya, 15 − with ex-wife Siovaughn Funches, as well as son Xavier, 9, with Aja Metoyer.

“It’s weird to say I’m head of household, because in this household, we split everything 50/50,” Union said in a Bloomberg Originals video published May 8. “But in the other households that each of us have to support, there’s always this gorilla on your back that is like, ‘You better work! You better work! You want to sleep in? Somebody might not eat.’ And it’s hard. It’s hard to let that go, so I’m working on that.”

Union added that having a family to support motivates her to keep working hard.
