It turns out Dwyane Wade’s been playing more than basketball lately…and new fiancee Gabrielle Union is less than happy about it.
It emerged on Monday that the Miami Heat star recently had a child with an unnamed woman, according to E! News.
The event occurred while the couple were on a break and before the 31-year-old proposed to the Bring It On star on December 21.
Gabrielle was shocked and angry when she learned the truth, a source told E!, and she distanced herself from the basketball player.
But they have since reconciled and his proposal, accompanied by a $1 million 8.5 carat ring, sealed their love.
There has been no comment from either about the child.
The couple began dating in 2009 and, but broke up briefly earlier this year. A source told Gossip Cop that the child – a boy, according to the site – was conceived during that break.
Dwyane already has two sons, Zaire, 11, and Zion, six, with ex-wife Siovaughn Funches. He has full custody of the boys and also raises his nephew. Dwayne and Siovaughn divorced in 2010, three years after they split.
The settlement was complicated by the fact that Siovaughn filed a $50,000 lawsuit against Gabrielle alleging intentional infliction of emotional distress due to her relationship with her estranged husband.
Dwyane called 2013 a ‘big year’ for his relationship with Gabrielle during a recent interview with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show.
‘She was shooting her show, Being Mary Jane, and gone most of the year. I was dealing with my injuries, trying to win a championship. So we kind of took a step back,’ he said.
‘At the end of the day, we came back together and said we want to continue this and we want to get better each day.
‘She’s been with me and I’ve been with her all summer long. We’re going strong now.’
Being Mary Jane is scheduled to debut on BET in January.
Gabrielle is now filming Finally Famous opposite Rosario Dawson and Chris Rock, who wrote and is directing the comedy.
