While speaking about his upcoming ESPN documentary, D. When you hold something in that you know's going to come out and you have this information and know it's gonna f**k someone's life up, that you care about, that you love, if it does not hurt you, then you are not human. The couple chose to take a break in 2013 and the National Basketball Association player fathered his son Xavier with a woman named Aja Metoyer.

During a new special about the athlete titled D. Wade: Unexpected life, he talked about his feelings about the scandal.

Wade - who, aside from Zaya and Kaavia, is dad to sons Xavier Zechariah, 6, and Zaire Blessing Dwyane, as well as the guardian of nephew Dahveon Morris, 18 - shared that he was proud of Zaya and her role as "a leader". Shortly after revealing the child information to Gabrielle, he proposed.

Dwyane went on to note how not too long after telling her about the new baby, he went on to pop the big question, adding: 'She wasn't just marrying me, she was marrying all this baggage'.

The choice ended up being one of the best one they made, and the pair have been fortunately married since 2014!

Both Ms Klobuchar and Mr Buttigieg have struggled to draw strong support from African Americans, a key voting demographic. One party official characterised turnout as higher than expected.

Despite all that, the two have genuinely been very happy and in love ever since. Gabrielle and Dwyane went on to welcome their lovable daughter Kaavia, 1, in 2018. The couple opted for a surrogacy after a number of rounds of IVF remedies and fertility struggles.

During his recent appearance on "The Ellen Degeneres Show", the proud dad opened up about the day Zaya, who was named Zion at birth, came out to him and wife Union, as ET reports. "We're proud dad and mom of a kid within the LGBTQ+ group", Dwyane stated to Ellen DeGeneres on February 11. "And we are proud allies as well". So when our youngster comes house with a query or a difficulty or something, it's our job as mother and father to pay attention and provides them the most effective info and suggestions that we will. "And that doesn't change because sexuality is now involved in it".

"Once Zion came home and said 'hey call me Zaya and I'm ready to take on this, ' I looked at her and said, 'you are a leader, you are a leader and it's our opportunity to allow you to be a voice'".

Zaya has since spoken about her experience of coming out, urging other transgender kids to "push through, and you be the best you and especially more recently, it's become more accepting".
