Gabrielle Union Calls Herself the "Mama June" to Dwyane Wade's "Honey Boo Boo" — Find Out Why!


While most married couples enjoy hobbies like running or cooking together, newlyweds Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade enjoy a very different activity: karaoke!

"We're karaoke fiends," Union told Jimmy Fallon last night on The Tonight Show. "It's a problem for us," she said jokingly.

When Fallon begged her to go on, Union explained that she recently learned on vacation that hubby Wade doesn't have a go-to song. They were out one night at a restaurant with live music, and the band invited people to come up and sing. Begrudgingly, she forced Wade to go on stage.

"He was my little Honey Boo Boo, and I was his Mama June," she described. "He gets up there begrudgingly, and he's like a deer in the headlights. He had no go-to song," she continued. "The shame that I felt that he was not prepared for the moment...We've been practicing ever since."

Hilariously she then described that they have an at-home karaoke machine and she's made the Miami Heat star practice so he wouldn't embarrass himself like that ever again! For the record, the Being Mary Jane star has a whole library of karaoke hits at her fingertips, so much so that when Fallon asked her signature song, she said pick a genre and was able to sing a few of her favorites on the spot.

Not going to lie: It's pretty adorable that these two love to spend their time finessing their karaoke skills. We'd love to see them out at a bar belting a tune!
