Heat Star Dwyane Wade Surprises Coral Gables Teen At Prom

CORAL GABLES (CBS4) - A high school senior got the surprise of a lifetime when Dwyane Wade arrived at her prom.

Nicole Muxo, a senior at Archbishop Coleman Carroll, posted a video she on YouTube asking Wade to be her date, but she says she never expected him to actually show up.

Just before 9:30 p.m.,  the Heat star arrived. He said it wasn't the first time she'd asked him to a dance, but this time her persistence paid off.

"She continued to go for it no matter how many times I told her i'm going to be busy she continued asking if I'm going to come," he said.

The entire crowd cheered as Wade arrived on the dance floor.

"I was so surprised. I didn't expect it at all," said Nicole. They took pictures together and danced.

Her date Laurent Chaumin was a good sport about the whole thing and joked with Wade.

"At least we both know how to dress," he said.

Nicole says the night was unforgettable. "I'm going to remember it forever. This was definitely the highlight of my senior year."
