Miami Heat Superstar Dwayne Wade has confirmed that he did, in fact, father a child while he and his now fiancé Gabrielle Union were separated.
The couple started dating back in 2009, but took a brief break from each other to focus on their careers. "I was dealing with my injuries, trying to win a championship, so we kinda took a step back," Wade said. It was during that time that Wade says he fathered a baby boy.
"I had a time, a part in our break, in our pain and our hurt, a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son that was born healthy," Wade said. "So I'm moving on."
Reports say that Union was initially upset when she heard the news. However, it is obvious that the couple reconciled seeing as Wade just popped the question last week. Wade says that all he is concerned with is being a good father to his children. "I've always tried to show my importance in my kids' lives and it doesn't change now," he said. "So, I, my lady and my family have continued to move forward, and I think that's evident with the ring and the proposal that I gave her, with our lives."
Wade says that he will continue to work out the situation privately. "But, like I said, this is something, obviously, private for my family that we will continue to deal with as a family. But we have a blessing to the bloodline, to the Wade bloodline."
