According to TMZ reports:
Exactly 9 months before Dwyane Wade’s son was born (by a woman who’s NOT his fiancee) … Wade and Gabrielle Union were still acting like they were very much a couple … and TMZ has the proof.
We broke the story … Wade’s baby mama, 30-year-old Aja Metoyer gave birth to Dwyane’s son Xavier on Nov. 10. Wade claims the two were on a “break” at the time.
But on February 5th (9 months before the birth), Gabrielle was Instagramming about Wade … posting a photo of the NBA star cuddled up with her dog Sasha along with caption, “Sasha don’t play when it comes to her man… ‘Down to ride ’til the very end, it’s me and my boyfriend.'”
A couple of days before that (on Feb. 1), Gabrielle posted a romantic photo of the couple together from a photo shoot for a “Flashback Friday.”
Doesn’t seem like a couple on a break …
We were pretty much thinking the same thing from looking at photos from Dwyane’s IG over the past year.
There’s more … on February 19th, Gabby posted another pic of Dwyane holding one of her scripts … with the caption, “It takes a village to help an actress learn her lines… @dwyanewade takin a break from his Gatorade commercial to give me a line reading. Thanks coach :)”
The patter continues until April … when Gabby stopped posting pics of Dwyane and started posting a bunch of sad cryptic quotes. One reads, “We cannot start over, but we can begin now, and make a new ending.”
Another says, “Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you have ever been, to stand up taller than you ever were.”
Oh it’s victory alright. Victory in the form of a big fat ring…
But on May 16, Wade returns to the picture … with Union posting a photo of the couple, along with the caption, “I like this dude.”
One would assume it was right around this time that Union decided to take him back.
Womp womp. Do you REALLY believe the couple was on a break when the baby was conceived? More like they had a short breakup after Gabby found out if you ask us!
Anyway hit the flip for more info on Dwyane’s baby mama, who just so happens to have kids with another famous man.
According to TMZ reports:
Metoyer did not list Wade as the father on the birth certificate, but she did give the child Dwyane’s last name.
Sources connected to the situation tell us … Dwyane has been making a serious effort to be a part of the child’s life and has visited Xavier several times since his birth. Most recently, Dwayne visited his son while he was in L.A. to play the Lakers on Christmas Day.
Xavier’s mom and Dwyane’s baby mom Aja Metoyer is also the mother of Damon Wayans Jr.’s 11-year-old daughter Amara and her other daughter as well.
Unfortunately they haven’t had the most cordial co-parenting experience, and Metoyer has dragged Wayans Jr. into court on occasion in attempt to collect more support. One such account alleges that Metoyer has not worked for years and that the children aren’t fed or bathed or made to do homework when they’re with Wayans. Eeek. They look pretty clean from the photos we’ve seen though.
