Dwyane Wade is opening up about a difficult conversation he had with wife Gabrielle Union before they were married. The former NBA star had fathered a child with someone else when they were on a break.


Dwyane’s 6-year-old son Xavier was born in 2013. He and Gabrielle had been dating since 2008, but apparently weren’t together at the time Xavier was conceived. In a new ESPN documentary called D. Wade: Life Unexpected (premiering February 23), Dwyane talks about the situation.

How Dwyane Wade Told Gabrielle Union He Had A Child With Another Woman

When Xavier was born, Dwyane already had two children (Zaire and Zaya) from a previous relationship and was a guardian to his nephew Dahveon. According to Entertainment Tonight, Dwyane talks about the experience in the new doc.

“I had a child with someone else and I had to tell her. Hardest thing I’ve ever had to do is man up and tell Gabrielle Union that I’ve had a child with somebody else.”

Dwyane said he “couldn’t sleep” and “wasn’t eating” before sharing the news with Gabrielle. “When you hold something in that you know is going to come out and you have this information and you know it’s gonna f**k somebody’s life up, that you care about, that you love, if it don’t hurt you, then you’re not human,” he said.

“Me and Gab just went through something that you never want to go through,” Dwyane said of the experience, “and we still came out of it.” The athlete’s kids have been a big part of their relationship and were even involved in his proposal to Gabrielle.

“She wasn’t just marrying me, she was marrying all this baggage,” Dwyane explained. The couple was married in 2014, and have since welcomed a daughter of their own, named Kaavia, who was born via surrogate.

Dwyane has supported Union through her conflict with America’s Got Talent, and the couple recently shared support for Dwyane’s 12-year-old child Zaya, who now uses female pronouns.
