Gabrielle Union must have been shocked to learn that her fiancé Dwyane Wade fathered a son with a mystery ex while they were on a break, and now news has gotten worse — on Dec. 31, reports surfaced that Gabrielle and Dwyane were still together when the baby was conceived!
Poor Gabrielle Union, 41, barely had time to enjoy her new engagement to NBA star Dwyane Wade, 41, before news broke that Dwyane had fathered a child with Aja Metoyer. Now, the timing of their son’s birth reveals that Dwyane was still with Gabrielle during the child’s conception!
Dwyane Wade Conceived Son While Dating Gabrielle Union
TMZ reports that nine months before Xavier Zechariah Wade‘s birth on Nov. 10, 2013, Gabrielle and Dwyane were still very much a couple. Wade told Entertainment Weekly that Gabrielle was aware of Aja and that they were “on a break” during Xavier’s conception, but a photo posted on Gabrielle’s Instagram on February 5, 2013 (9 months before Xavier’s birth) suggests otherwise. The photo shows Dwyane cuddling up to the couple’s dog Sasha, with the caption “Sasha don’t play when it comes to her man… ‘Down to ride ’til the very end, it’s me and my boyfriend.'”
Dwyane Wade Focusing On Family
Despite the embarrassing situation, Dwyane says he’s focusing on Gabrielle, his two other sons with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches, and his nephew, Dahveon Morris.
“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,” Dwyane said to reporters on Dec. 30. “I’ve always tried to show my importance in my kids’ lives and it doesn’t change now. 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.”
