Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade acknowledged Monday that he fathered a son who was born a month ago outside of his relationship with fiancee actress Gabrielle Union.
“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.”

Prior to the Heat’s game against the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center, Wade addressed the birth of his son in the wake of several online reports earlier in the day.“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, 31, has primary custody of two young sons from his marriage to former wife Siohvaughn Funches and is also raising a nephew at his Miami home. He announced his engagement last week to Union, later posting a family Christmas video of Union with his two sons by Funches and his nephew. Wade and Union, who had been aware of Wade’s most recent child, are expected to wed in September. The two have been dating since 2009.

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.”
