Dwyane Wade reveals with Gabrielle Union about child with another woman
Dwyane Wade recently opened up about the agonizing talk he had with Gabrielle Union that nearly ended their long-term relationship.
The NBA Hall of Famer talked about the moment when he told Union that he had fathered a child, Xavier Zechariah Wade, with another woman — Aja Métoyer — while the famous couple was on a relationship break in 2013.
The Miami Heat legend said he tried to end his relationship with Union at the time, feeling it would be the smartest move for both of them given the circumstances.
“I tried to pussyfoot around it, I tried to break up with her,” Wade told sports commentator Shannon Sharpe in a recirculated clip from his June interview on the “Club Shay Shay” podcast. “‘Hey, things have been bad lately,’ ‘Hey, we’ve been having a little distance in our relationship anyway,’ I tried all of that. She kept showing up.”
After some time, Wade knew he had to have the “hard conversation” with Union about the situation.
“You’re thinking about it all, it’s all scary,” Wade said. “But you know that this is going to hurt someone that you’ve been building a relationship with and a life with. No matter what people say on the outside, or what people want to think, ultimately you gotta sit with you, and you gotta sit with this person, and I had to sit with my wife and have this conversation.”
