Prior to last night’s game against the Denver Nuggets, Dwanye Wade addressed the reporters about his new born son.
“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 now he’s focusing on his family and being a great father. “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 had hinted of an outside issue during a September appearance on The Tonight Show, telling host Jay Leno of a break with Union, saying, “Celebrity relationships [are] very hard. This was a big year for us and our relationship from the standpoint of she was shooting her show Being Mary Jane, going most of the year. I was dealing with my injuries, trying to win a championship, so we kinda took a step back.”
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.”
