Dwyane Wade confirmed to reporters Monday before the Miami Heat’s game against the Denver Nuggets that he recently fathered a child with a woman other than his fiancée Gabrielle Union.
I’m in the public eye, so obviously that’s a part of it. It comes with the territory. But, it’s kind of … 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. I’ve always tried to show my importance in my kids’ lives and it doesn’t change now. So, me and 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.
But, yeah, 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. So, I’m moving on.
According to blacksportsonline.com, the woman Wade had this child with is Sandrina Schultz, rumored to be an ex-mistress of former teammate Lamar Odom.
Wade and Union became engaged on Dec. 21. Wade has two sons from his previous marriage, Zaire and Zion.
His newest son in about a month old.
“Yeah, I’ve got a chance to see him. You know me. I’m involved in my kids’ lives.”
In 2012, Wade published A Father First, a book about the importance of being a father.
