Wow, that was quick!
After news came out earlier today about Dwyane Wade possibly fathering a child with another woman while taking a “temporary break” from now fiancee Gabrielle Union, Wade decided to address the media.
The Bleacherreport.com’s Ethan J. Skolnick reports:
“Dwyane Wade addresses news. Says that a “blessing” came out of everything, & he and his fiancée worked through it. Now, back to basketball.”
Wade also told the Sun Sentinel:
“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,” Wade said of his relationship with Union. “So I’m moving on.”
“I’m in the public eye, so obviously that’s a part of it,” Wade said of the private matter becoming public. “It comes with the territory.”
Wade said what matters to him “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, I, 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.”
Wade said he has spent time with his newborn son.
“Yeah, I’ve got a chance to see him,” he said. “You know me. I’m involved in my kids’ lives. When my kids were living at home with me, or wasn’t living at home with me, I tried to do everything I could to see them. Obviously I got custody of them for different reasons, but nothing changes with my life.
“Like I’ve said, this is something that my family knows and my now fiancee worked through when we got back together, and understood that we wanted to continue our lives together and continue supporting our family and we’re going to do that. That’s what I’ve always done.”
According to Entertainment Tonight, Wade had known the mother of his latest child for several years.
“But, like I said, this is something, obviously, private for my family that we will continue to deal with as a family. But we have a blessing to the bloodline, to the Wade bloodline. And from that standpoint, it doesn’t, to me, state anything differently from what I’ve always shown.”
Well, there you have it. Congrats to the couple.
