It appears that Dwyane Wade went the Dan Marino route and had himself a love-child with another woman. Wade's now-fiancée, Gabrielle Union, was aware of the child and the couple say they've handled the private situation privately.
But, this is the Internet, so we're gonna talk about it.
Wade and Union recently made news when he proposed to her before a team Christmas party.
Entertainment Tonight has the story:
NBA star Dwyane Wade recently spent time with his new baby boy he fathered with a woman.
Wade, 31, and Union, 41, who were officially engaged last week, have worked through the issue privately as a couple, and the Bring It On star was aware of the child before their engagement. Wade has known the mother of his youngest son "for many years."
The long-time couple, who have been dating since 2009, are still very much committed to spending their lives together, and according to the Miami Heat star last week, a September wedding is likely.
Wade apparently had a DNA test and, as Maury would say, he is the father.
Wade already has two other boys Zaire, 11, and Zion, 6, with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches.
In 2011, Wade was awarded sole custody of his and Funches' two sons.
This past year, Wade hit the New York Times bestseller's list with his A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger than Basketball.
He and Union have been dating since 2009, and plan to be married sometime next September.
