Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union have proved time and time again that they are crushing the parenting game. The couple has been committed to nurturing and supporting their children. The two are parents to five children: 18-year-old Zaire, 17-year-old nephew Dahveon, 12-year-old Zaya, 6-year-old Xavier, and 1-year-old Kaavia.
On Tuesday’s episode of The Ellen Degeneres Show, Dwyane shared a clip from the upcoming ESPN documentary D.Wade: Life Unexpected. The documentary will follow Dwyane’s storied career, as well as his development as a husband, father, and businessman. In his conversation with Ellen about the family aspect, he discussed when his daughter, 12-year-old Zaya, came out as transgender to him and Gabrielle.
Ellen applauded Dwyane and Gabrielle for their loving, accepting nature and support of Zaya throughout her journey. Zaya has been known to be a member of the LGBTQ+ community since last year, when the rest she, Gabrielle, and her siblings attended the Miami Pride Parade and shared photos from that day.
