//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.jsWhen people found out earlier this year that Dwyane Wade had a child with another woman while on a “break” from his relationship with Gabrielle Union, everyone and their mother had something to say about it. When all that uproar died down, little Xavier Zechariah Wade went on to quietly grow up and have a happy childhood, being taken care of and loved immensely by his mother, Aja Metoye’r. And on November 10, he quietly turned 1, and recently had a party with his family to celebrate a whole year on this earth. Metoye’r wrote about how her little man has changed her life:
“Exactly a year ago at 7:03 am my lil man was born 1 of the most amazing days of my life.. There was a time when I thought I would never have a son .. But on November 10, 2013 my family and I were bless with Xavier Zechariah Wade.. I’ve spent every day since with you and every night sleeping next to you and constantly checking on u.. Even when you sleep through the night I don’t lol. I love being your mommy son. I could never imagine life with out you. I love Ur smile Ur hugs and sweet kisses. Love you always and forever son .. Love can’t even express how I feel .. Happy birthday baby my sweet special surprise XaveyBaby”
She went on to share other beautiful images of Xavier, including pictures of him days after he was born, and birthday wishes for him from family and friends. Dwyane Wade didn’t post any birthday wishes for his son on his social media pages, and it’s unclear if he was at the birthday party, but who knows? He could have been present and just stayed on the low. Check out more cute pictures of Xavier and the well-wishes for his birthday below.
