Dwyane Wade Recalls The Moment He Told Gabrielle Union He Fathered A Child With Another Woman

Dwyane Wade is looking back at a moment that almost ended his relationship with now-wife Gabrielle Union. On Wednesday, the retired NBA player made an appearance on the “Club Shay Shay” podcast and opened up about the time he had to tell the actress that he had fathered his son Xavier with another woman while he and Gabrielle were on a break in 2013. “That was a rough time for me. You’re keeping something from people you love, and it’s heavy. And I tried to pussyfoot around it. I tried to break up with her, ‘Hey, you know things has been bad lately. We’ve been having some distance in our relationship anyway.’ Like I tried all that. She kept showing up. It hasn’t been perfect; it will never be perfect. But that was nine years ago. We go to therapy; we’ve been to therapy. We’ve had shouts about it. We’ve had regular conversations about it. It’s been something that is going to continue to be something that I have to work at and work on. It doesn’t go away because years come or because I say sorry,” he said.
