The actress married Wade in August 2014, becoming stepmother to his sons Zaire Blessing, 19, Xavier Zechariah, 7, and daughter Zaya, 14, as well as Wade's nephew Dahveon, 19.

As their children grow, Union and the retired NBA player have made sure that the kids remain true to themselves.

Speaking to PEOPLE in April, Wade said, "My focus when it comes to any of my kids is to let them know who they are so that when other people's opinions about them are formed, it's not hitting them."

"If we allow our kids to be their true selves, we don't have to worry about them conforming with anything or anyone," Wade added. "Why wouldn't we push our kids to be their authentic selves?"

Union also explained that she wants to offer a different environment for her children to grow than the one in which she was raised.

"I was raised to assimilate. I was raised to conform," she said. "But we are raising our kids to know they are worthy because they exist. We don't want them to ever shapeshift for anyone else's approval or acceptance. We want them to be free to be who they are."
