Actress Gabrielle Union and NBA star Dwayne Wade recently celebrated their one year anniversary and video of their wedding day has been picking up in popularity the last two weeks.

In a clip shared by Conan O’Brien on his late night talk show Conan on October 21, Union, 42, and Wade, 33, are seen showing off a sassy secret handshake the two created for their wedding right after their vows.

Before the wedding handshake clip is revealed, Union tells O’Brien that all the major athletes in the NBA, NFL and Major League Baseball have “elaborate handshakes,” including her husband and Lebron James.

“Him and LeBron have, to this day, like 87 handshakes,” Union joked. “There’s choreography… Debbie Allen I think choreographed one, I’m not sure.”

O’Brien cuts to the clip of the newlyweds kissing, Union in her wedding dress and Wade in his tuxedo, just before they bust out their surprising choreographed moves.

In reference to the smug faces the two made during the handshake Union said, “We put a little stank on it, so it’s legal.”

The clip continues with Union discussing the couple’s in-home sports bar and shoe vault – rooms that each got to create without the other’s input. Coincidentally, the shoe vault belongs to Wade while the sports bar is all Union’s design.

Union and Wade were married at the Chateau Artisan castle in Miami, Florida on August 30, 2014. John Legend serenaded guests with his single “You & I” before the couple exchanged vows. Guests included Lebron James, comedian Kevin Hart, actress Essence Atkins and hip-hop artist Ludacris.
