NBA superstar Dwyane Wade talked with Ellen DeGeneres, revealing that his 12-year-old son, Zion, is now known as Zaya. And is transitioning to female!
During the interview he revealed that he and his new wife, Gabrielle Union, had to learn more about the LGBTQ community as Zaya was growing up and admitted they are “proud parents and allies” of the child.
“First of all, me and my wife Gabrielle, we are proud parents of a child in the LGBTQ+ community,” Dwyane Wayne said.
“Once Zaya, our 12-year-old, came home…first, Zion. I don’t know if everyone knows, originally named Zion. Zion, born as a boy, came home and said, ‘Hey, so I want to talk to you guys…'”
Definitely a brave moment for the 12-year-old!
