Dwyane Wade confirmed the news that he fathered a baby boy while on a break from fiancée Gabrielle Union. He addressed the issue before a game on Monday telling the press:
“I’m in the public eye, so obviously that’s a part of it. It comes with the territory. But, it’s kind of … as I’ve always done my whole life … is always focus on what’s most important to me and my family, and that’s being a great father. I’ve always tried to show my importance in my kids’ lives and it doesn’t change now.
“But, yeah, I had a time … in our pain and our hurt, (but) a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son that was born healthy. So, I’m moving on.
He added that he has spent time with his one-month-old son as well as worked things out with Gabrielle:
“Yeah, I’ve got a chance to see him. You know me. I’m involved in my kids’ lives. When my kids were living at home with me, or wasn’t living at home with me, I tried to do everything I could to see them. Obviously I got custody of them for different reasons, but nothing changes with my life.
Like I’ve said, this is something that my family knows and my now fiancee worked through when we got back together, and understood that we wanted to continue our lives together and continue supporting our family and we’re going to do that. That’s what I’ve always done.”
Meanwhile, the identity of the baby mama has been revealed. Read more

NBA star Dwyane Wade just sold a sitcom to Fox based on his life. The Miami Heat guard is adapting his New York Times best-selling book A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball, for television. THR reports that show is titled Three the Hard Way and “is inspired by the life of the three-time NBA champion and gold medalist and centers on superstar Daryl Wade and his entourage of eccentric friends who find themselves parenting by committee after he gets full custody of his two young sons. It’s a recipe made for disaster but no matter how misinformed, misguided or unfit Team Wade may be, they have a trump card that can’t be cut lose: love.”
The show has been in development since late 2012 and sold to Fox earlier this year.
