Dwyane Wade has had a lot of ups and downs in his life, but the “hardest thing” he’s ever had to do was tell Gabrielle Union that he had a child with another woman, according to his new ESPN documentary.
In his upcoming D. Wade: Life Unexpected, the former Miami Heat superstar, 38, opens up about his personal life and his brief split with Union, 47. Recalling their reconciliation, Wade says it “wasn’t easy” to let the actress know about the son he fathered during their time apart.
At the time, Wade was already dad to Zaire, 18, and Zaya, 12, and nephew Dahveon, 18. He welcomed Xavier, 6, with Basketball Wives star, Aja Metoyerin, 2013 shortly before proposing to Union.
