The NBA star confirmed the news at a press conference on Monday.
"I had a time, a part in our break, in our pain and our hurt, a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son that was born healthy," reports the Sun Sentinel.
Earlier reports indicate that his now-fiancée Gabrielle was aware of the newborn before Dwyane popped the question over the holidays.
In September, Wade opened up to Jay Leno about the couple’s break. "Celebrity relationships [are] very hard. This was a big year for us and our relationship from the standpoint of she was shooting her show ‘Being Mary Jane,’ going most of the year. I was dealing with my injuries, trying to win a championship, so we kinda took a step back."
He continued, "We supported each other... but at the end of the day we came back together and [said], 'Listen, we want to continue this, we want to continue to try to get better each day,' and she's been with me, and I've been with her all summer long. We're going strong now."
The two have been together since 2009... with one notable break.
Yes, it is true… Dwyane Wade fathered a baby boy while on a break from Gabrielle Union!
