“In Our Pain And Our Hurt, A Blessing Came Out Of It”: Dwyane Wade Speaks On His Newborn Son
So the big news was spilled yesterday about Dwyane Wade having a child with another woman while on break from his long-term relationship with Gabrielle Union. Many people were very much taken aback by the news, but as we later found out, Gabrielle Union wasn’t, because she learned of the baby a while ago and decided to make things work with Wade despite all of that. She posted a few thoughts on Twitter around the time the news broke about the idea of “perfection” and working on yourself before judging others.
But what does Wade have to say about all that has happened and been revealed? According to the Sun-Sentinel, he cleared up the rumors before a Miami Heat game against the Denver Nuggets on Monday. Here’s what he had to say:
About The Rumors Being True:
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.
Why The News Came Out The Way It Did (And Not By Him):
I’m in the public eye, so obviously that’s a part of it. It comes with the territory.
What’s Next And What His Goal Is With His New Son:
…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.
If He’s Seen His Son Yet:
Yeah, I’ve got a chance to see him. 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 fiancée 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.
Does He Think This Situation Will Change The Way People See Him:
It would compromise it if I wasn’t a father first. I’m always going to be a father first. That doesn’t change. If you decide to when you can be a father, that’s when it compromises.
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.
What do you think about all that he had to say? Wade definitely gives the tone that while he’s apologetic to his wife-to-be, he’s not worried about anyone else’s opinion. It’s his life, he’s living it, they’ve reconciled, become a stronger couple, and like he said, they’re moving on with a bigger and better family–and a new son.
