Actress, Gabrielle Union, was excited about her man taking it all off for ESPN’s Body Issue!

Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, UFC fighter Conor McGregor, Super Bowl MVP Von Miller and Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta are among the athletes who will shed their clothes to appear in ESPN The Magazine’s annual Body Issue.

Wade, a 13-year NBA veteran with the Miami Heat, turned down doing the body issue 7 times.

“It was uncharted water for me,” the NBA veteran said. “It was one of those moments where it’s good to overcome a fear of something.

Ten men and nine women will appear in the magazine, which announced the athlete list for the eighth annual Body Issue on Tuesday. The featured participants include Team USA duathlete Chris Mosier, who will be the first transgender athlete to pose.

The issue will feature a set of Olympic athletes, Houston Texan defensive tackle Vince Wilfork will show off his 325 pounds and retired diver Greg Louganis, who had been diagnosed with HIV, will be the oldest athlete featured at 56.

HIV taught me that I’m a lot stronger than I ever believed I was. I didn’t think I would see 30, and here I am at 56,” said the former Olympic Diver.
