The actress turned 40 over the weekend, but doesn’t see anything changing any time soon. She’s loving life, loving freedom ,and isn’t worried about a baby right now.

So when’s the ring coming?

Don’t hold your breath, because it could be forever.

“I don’t know,” Gabrielle said of her plans for getting hitched to D. Wade. “We like each other a lot, and we both failed miserably the last time either one of us got married.”
