Back in June, a news report swirled around claiming Miami Heats baller Dwyane Wade had slipped up and got a chick pregnant, while he was on a break from his girlfriend turned fiancee‘ Gabrielle Union.
Apparently, the news report affected the basketball player so bad that he was ‘allegedly’ benched by his coach during the NBA playoffs, citing that event ‘the worst time of his career.’
Now, an insider tells ET Online that Wade, 41, has admitted to fathering the same baby (a newborn son) from the affair. Dwyane claims he and the child’s mother were/are really good friends when he got her pregnant.
Also, the 41-year-old ‘Being Mary Jane’ actress reportedly knew all about it and forgave Wade for cheating on her by accepting his engagement proposal on Christmas Eve night.
The long-time couple, who have been dating since 2009, says they are committed to spending their lives together, and according to the Miami Heat star last week, a September wedding is likely.
