Gabrielle Union enjoyed the surf and sun in Los Angeles with beau Dwyane Wade on Saturday, Sept. 21. The actress, 40, and her basketball player boyfriend looked thrilled to be spending the sunny day outdoors, and both showed off their impressive beach bodies as they frolicked on the sand. (Union rocked a Vitamin A bikini.)

"With her body, she's a natural athlete," Union's trainer, Ahmad Baari, told Us Weekly in fall 2012. "Depending on her schedule we'll do about three or four months that I will see her regularly, she'll leave and then come back and we work to get her back to where she wants to be. She tells me exactly what she needs."

The happy couple have been dating since 2009, and the Miami Heat star hasn't been shy about expressing his love for the stunning actress.

"She makes my eyes sparkle," he told Oprah Winfrey on Oprah's Next Chapter last summer. "The biggest time she makes my eyes sparkle is when Zaire (his 11-year-old son from a previous marriage) comes home and homework is a little hard that day, so he's stressing, and she goes to the table with him and she sits down until he gets it."

"And at that time my heart is smiling a little bigger that day because I know her love is deeper than just me," he said.
