Dwyane Wade Fathered Child While On Break From Gabrielle Union

The 2013 Entertainment Weekly Pre-Emmy Party in LA

Dwyane Wade is coming forward with the truth. The Miami Heat guard confirmed that he fathered a son during a brief break from his now-fiancée Gabrielle Union.

The NBA player, 31, acknowledged that he is the father of a little boy, born about a month ago. “I had a time, a part in our break, in our pain and our hurt, a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son that was born healthy,” Wade said during a Monday press conference, as reported by the Sun Sentinel. “So I’m moving on.”

The press conference came hours after Entertainment Tonight broke the story, stating that Wade and Union, 41, had worked through the issue “privately as a couple.”

Wade has primary custody of sons Zaire, 11, and Zion, 6, from his previous marriage to Siohvaughn Funches. The pro-basketball player is also raising a nephew at his Florida home. He proposed to Union just before Christmas.

“[I] always focus on what’s most important to me and my family, and that’s being a great father,” Wade added on Monday. “I’ve always tried to show my importance in my kids’ lives and it doesn’t change now. So, I, my lady and my family have continued to move forward, and I think that’s evident with the ring and the proposal that I gave her, with our lives.”

He continued: “But, like I said, this is something, obviously, private for my family that we will continue to deal with as a family. But we have a blessing to the bloodline, to the Wade bloodline.”

    So they took a break and during that time just had to knock someone up. Why do people have to get knocked up from everyone and anyone they date? Didn’t anyone hear of CONDOMS???? They are a lot cheaper than birth control. What a moron.

    He probably considered a waste of time being on a break from his gf and not f*** another woman. We can’t stop them being from being jerks, but geez wear a freaking condom you big time idiot.

    I never understood how easily sone people move on from a breakup. Its like they use yhe “oh l was so hurt” scenario as an excuse to why they sleep w other people. I wish Gabrielle the best. That would be hard for me to digest.

    He’s moving on? Ok…what about Gabrielle “moving on” and besides he can’t really “move on” since he now has a new baby boy that will be around him for the rest of D-Wade’s life. He says that so casually.

    He’s “moving on”? Ok I understand that may be a reference to the whole situation, but that baby didn’t ask to be born. He deserves a better father than one who says that so nonchalantly.
