Dwayne Wade has made a confession. During a temporary split from his now-fiance Gabrielle Union earlier this year, he fathered a child with another woman.
Gabrielle, 41, was aware of the child before she accepted his proposal on December 21. The two have worked through the issue privately, according to People. Wade, 31, has known the baby momma for years, and recently saw her and his new son.
Wade told Jay Leno that the two split mostly due to scheduling conflicts. They have been dating on and off since 2009. “Celebrity relationships [are] very hard,” he says. “This was a big year for us and our relationship from the standpoint of she was shooting her show Being Mary Jane, going most of the year. I was dealing with my injuries, trying to win a championship, so we kinda took a step back.”
“We supported each other … but at the end of the day we came back together and [said], ‘Listen, we want to continue this, we want to continue to try to get better each day,’ and she’s been with me, and I’ve been with her all summer long. We’re going strong now.”
This is Dwayne’s third child.
