Aja ManiqueBy: Britt L

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.

    For some strange reason, I think this dude is actually gay. I’m sure as soon as he’s retired from the NBA he will write a tell all book. Just look at how he dresses. These industry whores will lay down with anyone for a check, and ole boy knew better. I feel bad for the kid .

    Just my opinion, Ms. Union should walk away. Mr. Wade has proven himself to be an irresponsible partner. God will take care of the child. But in today’s deadly level of STD’s, why should you play Russian roulette with your health/life, Ms. Union.
    Marriage is build on trust. Caring for your partners well being is fundamental to that trust. In a more just world, in a committed relationship such as marriage, if a partner gave a partner a deadly STD, it would be considered a form of murder.
    Needless to say, I believe in the institution of marriage, which is not for everyone. Ms. Union, have a come to Jesus meeting with yourself, as my grandmother use to say to us when major decisions must be made.

    Does anyone not remember that Wade was married when she got with him? What goes around comes right back around. Now she knows how his wife felt.

    People are sooooo stupid when it comes to these types of situation. First of all no one knows exactly what went on with D and G during their split. Second, she knew about the pregnant woman and accepted his proposal. Next, so what if he has another child from this woman who makes a living from having celebrity children. He is a good father and I wouldn’t be surprised if he got custody of this one like the others because it is obvious this mother, like the other one is out for the money. Once she gets a fat check she will be just fine. Finally, celebrity women often give up motherhood for their careers. Just ask JA,AJ and BP. Having kids is not for everyone. So stop passing judgment on this Black Man when u don’t know what the hell u r talking about. Think first then keep ur ignorant ghetto assed opinions to ourselves.

    @Charles: I beg to differ. I don’t think he will get custody of this child, because this child shows that he is irresponsible! You claim to be in a committed relationship with someone else, so what you guys had a break, you go out and sleep with someone else unprotected? Never mind the pregnancy what about all the diseases he may have been exposed to? What about all the other men the chick was sleeping with, he was exposed to that as well by sleeping with her unprotected! If the mother of that new baby is irresponsible then so is he. How does he explain this hot funky mess to his sons? Remember they are watching what he is doing, and from what I can see he is not showing them a good example as far as this situation is concerned. They have a new brother, but it’s not by the woman that daddy brings to the house all the time and says that he loves. It’s by some chick he knew before ( but is not with) and doesn’t want to be with. Is he serious? I am in no way, saying he is not a good father but this does not look good on him. Who knew his wife was right all along. I personally feel, if this did not get out he would not have asked Gabby to marry him when he did. He tried to make her not look so stupid and vindicate himself as well. What happens when they get married and have a disagreement? Does he go out and do this again? Not only did he put himself at risk for getting some nasty ass disease, he put her at risk as well. Not cool. And the mother of this new baby is out for the money then he is out for the ass. If he didn’t want a baby he knew what he had to do and he did not do it!!! I don’t care if she said she was on birth control or whatever, if HE didn’t want another baby he should have wrapped it up!!! Simple. Gabby looks desperate and needy at this point. Not only will she be reminded of the affair over and over every time she sees the baby, but now she will have to deal with the mother of this child for years to come. I would rethink this marriage thing if I were her.

      Ms.Dez I agree with you to a point. If you find yourself in love with a man and you can not love his seed, be it yours or someone else’s you have no business being with him/her. What D, did was an error in judgement, but God makes no mistakes people do. The baby is a blessing to this earth and to the mother, father,Gabby and the rest of the family. He should be loved by all. D. needs to learn what it truly means to be committed to one person and remain there even when times get hard. Gabby has chosen this man by accepting his ring and therefore she is committing to a life with a man who cheated on his wife with her, had a baby outside of their relationship and apparently will cheat again. But Gabby is going into this marriage with her eyes wide open. She is aware of all of his faults and her own. Cast the 1st stone if you are without sin.

    Whatever cause a break in their relationship,I don’t know how this will strengthen their relationship toward marriage. Where is the trust?. It appears Dwayne went buck wild as if he didn’t care about Gabby. Hello,Gabby,this is a hint and a half for your A$$ to smell the real deal. This woman is going to cause many headache from his head to his checkbook.

    I’m rather fascinated with your writing abilities and also with the design of your web site. Is this a paid template or did you build it all by yourself? Besides the layout, your information is similarly high grade. It’s great to see a refreshing website again.
