The former NBA star is being profiled in the new documentary, which will air February 23 and pull the curtain back on his personal life.

'I had a child with someone else and I had to tell her,' said Dwyane, who had Xavier with Basketball Wives star Aja Metoyer.

'Hardest thing I've ever had to do is man up and tell Gabrielle Union that I've had a child with somebody else,' he revealed.

'When you hold something in that you know is going to come out and you have this information and you know it's gonna f*** somebody's life up, that you care about, that you love, if it don't hurt you, then you're not human,' he said.

Dwyane Wade opens up about daughter Zaya and parenting

'Me and Gab just went through something that you never want to go through and we still came out of it,' said the sports hunk.

Dwyane already had two children - Zaire, 18 and Zaya, 12. He and Gabrielle now have a one-year-old daughter together called Kaavia. 

Gabrielle suffered multiple miscarriages before she and Dwyane turned successfully to IVF, resulting in Kaavia's birth, which is featured in the new documentary.

The power couple have also raised Dwyane's 18-year-old nephew Dahveon, whom the basketball player was awarded custody of in 2011. 

Dwyane and Gabrielle have recently been hitting the headlines for supporting Zaya - named Zion at birth - in being a transgender girl.

dwyane-wade and son zion

*Dwyane Wade chopped it up with Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show on Tuesday, and he recalled the moment his 12-year-old son came out to him and wife Gabrielle Union.

Wade says he hopes to give his gender transitioning child “the best opportunity to be her best self.”

“First of all, I think it’s what every parent should be is what you’re being right now,” DeGeneres told him, per PEOPLE. “Which is unconditionally loving your child and supporting your child in whoever they are.”

“Me and my wife Gabrielle Union are proud parents of a child in the LGBTQ+ community,” Wade said. “And we are proud allies as well. We take our roles and our responsibility as parents very seriously. So when our child comes home with a question, when a child comes home with an issue, when a child comes home with anything, it’s our job as parents to listen to that, to give them the best information that we can, to give them the best feedback that we can — and that doesn’t change because sexuality is now involved in it.”

Gabrielle Union
@itsgabrielleu

Meet Zaya. She's compassionate, loving, whip smart and we are so proud of her. It’s Ok to listen to, love & respect your children exactly as they are. Love and light good people.

Embedded video
52.9K people are talking about this

Following the retired NBA star’s chat with Ellen, Union posted a clip on her social media of Wade with his son, now named Zaya (formally Zion), cruising around on a golf course while the child drops some wisdom. Check out the clip via the Twitter video embed above. 

Union captioned the clip, “Meet Zaya. She’s compassionate, loving, whip smart and we are so proud of her. It’s Ok to listen to, love & respect your children exactly as they are. Love and light good people.”

The video has been met with praise from the LGBTQ community, and anyone who suggests Wade and Union are exploiting/parading this child around like a prop is immediately attacked.

Many believe the celebration of gay/transgender children is pushing society closer to accepting pedophilia.

Meanwhile, during his chat with Ellen, Wade explained why Zion changed his name of Zaya.

“So once Zaya, our 12-year-old, came home — first Zion, I don’t know if everyone knows, originally named Zion, born as a boy — came home and said, ‘Hey, I want to talk to you guys. I think going forward I’m ready to live my truth. I want to be referenced as she and her, I would love for you guys to call me Zaya,’ ” Wade shared.

Wade admits he and Union turned to the cast of “Pose” for help understanding the child’s transition journey.

“So internally, it’s now our job to go out and get information, to reach out to every relationship that we have — my wife reached out to everybody on the cast of Pose — we’re just trying to figure out as much information as we can to make sure that we give our child the best opportunity to be her best self,” he continued.

“Once Zaya came home and said, ‘I want you to call me Zaya and I’m ready to take on this,’ I looked at her and said, ‘You are a leader. And this is our opportunity to allow you to be a voice,’ ” Wade added. “Right now it’s through us, because she’s 12 years old, but eventually it will be through her.”

Can u imagine before his son was born and eventually "came out", how many times Dwayne Wade called other males "faggotts, h*** or gay mother effa", whether he was joking or arguing? Looks as if the tables are turned. I don't care how many photo shoots or tv show appearances Dwayne  goes on, you know that inside he's hurt, disappointed and embarrassed. However, I commend him for not turning his back on his son. ....Sorry, I can't absorb the thought of my son getting hitted in the s******!

BIIGMANN i agree, say no more, you said it best, thank you
Comment by vaughn mitchell on February 12, 2020 at 11:26am
Just make sure your there for him/ her because the hell he/she will go threw, the taunts, the violence. Born a male should stay a male, born a female should stay a female.

Sad s*** Wade
Comment by BIIGMANN on February 12, 2020 at 11:24am
Let's look at the FACTUAL common sense here. 2 men can never conceive a baby together. 2 women can never conceive a baby together........ man was put on Earth to love woman ........ woman was put on Earth to love man.

I teach my child right and wrong and told how they will push it on her, i gave her most of the signs that exist sho she knows, i also let her know its okay to be different and why so she does not have to be impress or be like every one else and do what they do, i told my child i will always love her but i will never accept that life style, if that would happen i will lose a daughter, either you love human or God, how can we do right and we accept and teach pur kids to do wrong, what is the role of parents, how kids know from right to wrong? Majority of the world or society have no respect for God or his words they glorify men kind, but in the church every Sunday with a bible while they set their own rules? This is nonsense and all 5hose who favors that living a nonsense life trying to force on others as if its the right thing
Comment by Cherry Butter on February 12, 2020 at 6:01am
Hard pill to swallow if it's your own child. Seems like these kids today are full of surprises. Really trying to make this the norm.
Comment by mr1stroke on February 11, 2020 at 10:08pm
They support it otherwise the gay community would come for them. The bible says they will come a time many will have to pick side, pick their group, well its clear how many are making their choices now, some of you make excuses because you either one or some day will be on that side, others choose not to speak or afraid to speak because they are under command of the gay community they have to compromise because thats the only way you can survive
