in 2013, Dywane Wade welcomed a son with longtime friend, Aja Metoyer. He claimed the child was conceived while he and Gabrielle were on a break. That child’s name is Xavier Zechariah Wade (born November 10, 2013) and Gabriel Union has never publicly acknowledged him.
In a recent interview, the actress described what it’s like to marry into a family with three kids even though her husband is the father of four.
Gabby tells People Mag,
Marrying into a family of three boys and becoming a stepmother to three kids has just sort of been an extension to how I was raised. The more, the merrier! Everyone counts. Everyone has a space.β
Dwyane has two sons by ex-wife Zaire Blessing Dwyane Wade (born February 4, 2002) and Zion Malachi Airamis Wade (born May 29, 2007). He also adopted his nephew, Dahveon (born 2002), who is the son of his sister Deanna. His youngest son was born in 2013.
