Dwyane Wade will ring in the new year with his new baby boy, but fiancee Gabrielle Union is not the mother. ET Online reports the Miami Heat star has been spending time with his son; the child was conceived while Wade and Union took a relationship hiatus. A source close to the couple says Wade has known the mother “for many years” and that Union was very well of Wade’s indiscretion when they reconciled.
Wade recently proposed to Union with a dazzling 8.5 carat engagement ring, with his two older sons in attendance. Earlier this year, Wade admitted on “Jay Leno” that he and Union split up briefly, due to their demanding careers: “Celebrity relationships are very hard. For us this was a big year for our relationship from the standpoint she was shooting her show, Being Mary Jane and gone most of the year. I was dealing with my injuries [and] trying to win a championship. So we kind of took a step back.”
The source also revealed that Wade and Union are looking to tie the knot in September, 2014.
