Doubts have been cast on Dwyane Wade's claim that he was on a break from Gabrielle Union when he fathered a son with another woman. 

Aja Metoyer gave birth to Dwyane’s third child, who TMZ has revealed is called Xavier Zechariah Wade, on November 10 but according to Gabrielle's Instagram page, the couple were still together in February, nine months before the baby was born. 

On Valentine’s Day (February 14), Gabrielle shared a picture of herself and Wade with the words, 'Happy Valentine's Day @dwyanewade! This day is cool but I'm grateful you #MakeEveryDayCount (sic).'

In the snap, the duo are cuddled up and smiling for the camera, showing no sign of strife.

 

According to TMZ, just nine days earlier she shared a picture of the basketball player with her dog Sasha and wrote 'Sasha don't play when it comes to her man... 'Down to ride 'til the very end, it's me and my boyfriend (sic).'

Indeed Gabrielle continued to post pictures of her boyfriend until April when she replaced gushing messages with cryptic quotes.

One read: 'A person’s actions will tell you everything you need to know,' and she captioned it ‘Good Bad or Ugly... Actions speak the loudest and provide all the details you need to know #love (sic).'
Another said, 'Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you have ever been, to stand up taller than you ever were.'

However, by May 16 things were back on with Gabrielle posting a picture of her and Dwyane with the simple caption 'I like this dude.'

After the baby news was revealed on Monday, Wade acknowledged the claims to the Sun Sentinel.
He said: '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. So I'm moving on.'

And there's more! On February 19th, Dwyane helped Gabrielle learn lines for her show Being Mary Jane

Dwyane, 31, 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.

The baby news comes following a blissful time for the couple after Wade proposed to Gabrielle on December 21.

'Sooooo this happened...#Yessss,' Gabrielle excitedly wrote in the caption.

'She said YES!!!' Dwyane, 31, echoed on his own Twitter account, alongside a post of the same photo, a close-up of just her hand wearing the dazzling ring and resting gently on Dwyane's fingertips.

The basketball player proposed with an 8.5 carat cushion cut diamond ring by jewellery store Jason of Beverly Hills.

A happy ending: Gabrielle accepted Dwyane's proposal on December 21 and shared this picture of her engagement ring

And according to reports the dazzling engagement ring is worth almost a million dollars. 

Dwayne took his time in finding the perfect stone for the ring - sending his jeweller to Miami in search of the right gem - and on the third trip - he found the enormous diamond which he set in a platinum band.

The article states...."Aja Metoyer gave birth to Dwyane's third child on November 10 but he and Gabrielle have weathered the storm and are now happily engaged." Let me dissect this. 3rd child? 1.) By how many different women? 2.) Weathered WHAT storm? Being together for 9 months is not "weathering" ANYTHING, OK? 3.) Are happily "engaged"? Not married? Look honey, an engagement ring is a PROMISE, nothing more. A WEDDING is a commitment. So enough with the "happily engaged" crap, and try working on being HAPPILY MARRIED instead, you fake posers. Schmucks like this disgust me with their BS euphemisms.

Of course he was not on on a break. When I was in college I was an intern at a hotel in Philadelphia that had a contract with many of the sports team. It was my job to make sure the players were catered to and happy. Well it soon became apparent to the management I was not able to honor their request as I was only a 19 year old college student. The things these so called happily married family men wanted me to do was downright shocking. As soon as the team bus pulled into the parking lot the lobby filled up with these scantily dressed women who were more than happy to oblige their fantasies and whims. These athletes are treated like kings and they know it. He was just acting like all the rest of them. Beware girl you can do so much better.
