When news broke about the identity of the mother of Dwyane Wade’s newborn son, Aja Metoyer, it also came out that she has two children from a previous relationship with another famous man. It has been revealed that the father of her other two children, both little girls, is comedian/actor Damon Wayans Jr. That’s right, the son of Damon Wayans and the funny fella from shows like the recently cancelled Happy Endings and Fox’s New Girl. Wayans, Jr. has actually briefly spoken about all that has come out about the mother of his two daughters, and he told TMZ Sports that he doesn’t want all that’s going on to have a negative effect on his kids.
“I really have nothing to do with Aja’s situation. We both live completely separate lives, aside from co-parenting. My concern are my daughters and that they don’t get hurt in any of this.”
Wayans went on to say that the newborn, Xavier Wade (born on November 10), is a big hit with his daughters though, who “love their little brother and that’s all I care about.” But he just wants to make sure his kids don’t get dragged in all the drama going on with Metoyer and Wade.
According to Heavy.com, Wayans and 30-year-old Metoyer were high school sweethearts, and we know from Entertainment Tonight’s original report that Wade had also known Metoyer for years, even publicly shouting her out on Mother’s Day in 2010. As for Wayans, I respect that his main concern is his children and that his statement kept it positive and honest. We hope the best for all involved, especially the kids in this situation.
