The world was shocked to hear that 31-year-old NBA star Dwayne Wade has welcomed another son into the world; A month old baby boy whom was not conceived by his fiancee Gabrielle Union.
Only six weeks before Wade proposed to Union on December 20, 30-year-old Aja Manique Metoyer gave birth to Xavier Zechariah Wade on November 10.
According to a birth certificate obtained by TMZ, Aja gave birth at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. Wade’s name was not listed as the father on the birth certificate, but little Xavier does has his last name.
Entertainment Weekly has reported that Union knew about the new kid before getting engaged. The child was supposedly conceived while Wade and Union were on a break from their relationship.
Aja has no other ties to Wade but the baby. However, she is no stranger to children with celebrities.
Aja has two children with Damon Wayans Jr., the son of In Living Color legend Damon Wayans.
Despite the spit media tabloids have smeared on his name, Wade maintains his role as a dad to all three of his sons and says his new son is a blessing.
“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,” reported USA Today.
“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,” added Wade.
We’re glad to see Dwayne is taking responsibility as a man to continue on his quest in becoming a good dad. A good husband? Hmmm…We’re not too sure yet.
