With three kids from previous relationships and one child of their own, Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union have one of the sweetest blended families in Hollywood. In fact, the longtime actress, 46, is constantly supporting her husband’s three older kids — Zaire, 17, Zion, 12, and Xavier, 5 — whom Dwyane shares with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches and ex-girlfriend Aja Metoyer.
On October 15, Gabrielle even clapped back a troll who attacked a photo of Zion and his baby sister, Kaavia James, who Dwyane and Gabrielle welcomed via surrogate in November 2018. “What y’all think of this?” the person captioned a snapshot of the Bring It On alum holding Kaavia, 11 months, while Zion smiled at her. The picture originated on Dwyane’s Instagram Story with the text, “My girls,” and two heart emojis.
“Looks like love to me,” Gabrielle replied. “I truly hope that everyone gets the love, support and hugs they deserve. Also, Kaav ain’t with the dumb s–t. Peace and blessings, good people.” And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what we like to call one fierce mama bear.
Of course, Gabrielle isn’t the only member of the family who stands up for what’s right. So much so, that on September 13, she posted an inspiring message, along with a picture of her thoughtful bunch. “As a family, we believe inclusion and equality are two essential pillars needed to move towards growth and progressive thinking and action in our society,” she wrote. “We have created a Limited Edition T-shirt to help create a more inclusive space with our platform.”
As a group, they donated $50,000 and 50 percent of the proceeds to The GLSEN organization. Pretty inspiring, right?
When it comes to Dwyane’s oldest son, Zaire, he plays basketball just like his dad once did and surprise surprise, he’s a true talent! Zaire currently tears up the court at Sierra Canyon School in L.A. Thus far, he hasn’t decided on what college to attend. Dwyane’s alma mater is Marquette University in Wisconsin.
Of course, when the time to choose a university comes, we have no doubt that Dwyane, Gabrielle and their entire darling brood will come together to be supportive.
