The 48-year-old actress has had a number of raunchy moments in her TV show ‘L.A.’s Finest’ and she admitted Dwyane Wade doesn’t enjoy watching them, but sometimes he sees them without warning because she “forgets” what she filmed.

She said:

“He’ll ask before each episode: ‘Are you naked in this one?’ Sometimes I forget, because we shot this stuff a year ago.

“And we’ll sit there with the whole family, popcorn, and he’s like …”

Gabrielle – who has daughter Kaavia, two, with her spouse and is stepmother to his kids  Zaire, 18, Zaya, 13, and Xavier, seven – admitted she also has to think about the children when it comes to stripping on screen.

She said:

“The older boys were like, ‘I am getting murdered at school,’ like with the sex scenes and all that.”

However, she insisted she’ll continue to expose her skin for as long as she’s comfortable.

Speaking on the ‘Renaissance Man’ podcast, she said: “Everyone will just adjust.”

But the ‘Bad Boys’ actress had her own moment of jealousy when her husband had a cameo in ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’ which saw him ballroom dancing.

She said: “I was like, ‘What is this, pasodoble?’ … I know I couldn’t do it. God bless, he is better than me.”

The couple are happy to be open with their fans about all aspects of their lives.

Gabrielle said:

“We just try to lead with love and transparency and people rock with us … We still screw up and we just lead with that. You aren’t going to be able to tell me or him nothing about us that we haven’t already told you first.”

And the couple are “big” on having therapy together.

She said:

“I’ve been going since ’92, and it’s honestly the thing that kept me alive.”

The former ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge recalled Dwyane saying in an interview he was planning to go to therapy when he retired from basketball.

She said:

“That was one of the first things he did, was start going religiously every week. So as a family, we’re just really big on therapy.”
