Rumors have been swirling for quite some time, but it sources close to Dwyane Wade & Gabrielle Union have confirmed that Dwyane recently spent time with a baby boy he fathered while at one point on a break from his new fiancé.
According to ET Online:
Wade, 31, and Union, 41, who were officially engaged last week, have worked through the issue privately as a couple, and the Bring It On star was aware of the child before their engagement. Wade has known the mother of his youngest son “for many years.”
The long-time couple, who have been dating since 2009, are still very much committed to spending their lives together, and according to the Miami Heat star last week, a September wedding is likely.
A committed father, Wade has full custody of his two sons after a contentious custody battle with his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches, and is also raising his nephew. He has made no secret that being a father is the most important role in his life, participating in President Obama’s Fatherhood Task Force and becoming a New York Times bestselling author for his book A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger than Basketball.
According to the source, Wade has never taken his fatherhood responsibility lightly and has no intention to do so now.
We’re glad that Dwyane and Gabrielle have been able to work through this delicate issue thus far. Blended families can be difficult.
