Dwyane Wade Reveals He Was Wearing Heels And Dresses As A Kid


Dwyane Wade is living life!

Not only was he one of the best guards to ever play in the NBA – a Finals MVP, a three time champion and a 13-time All Star, he’s also married to one of the most beautiful women in the world, Gabrielle Union.

In 2014, Wade married the actress and they’ve been a celebrity couple ever since.

Wade also has a beautiful family and has become an important spokesperson for the LGBTQ community, ever since his daughter Zaya came out as transgender last year.

During his appearance on the ‘I Am Athlete’ podcast, Wade, who loves his children unconditionally, now talked about how he thought that Zaya was just acting like he did as a child, and revealed that he used to dress-up in his sister’s clothes and heels:


“At three years old, me and my wife looked at each other and said, ‘What if? What if Zaya comes home – at the time, the name was Zion – if Zion comes home and says ‘Dad I’m gay…’ What are you gonna do, sir?…

…The reason we looked at each other is because… as kids, I used to put on heels, I used to put on, I used to do all those things. I’d try to put on, whatever my sisters wear, whatever my sisters did, I’d try to do those things. So at first, I said to myself, ‘Ah no, I did that. Zion is just doing the things I did. And then it went further and further and me and my wife had to look at each other and say ‘What if?'”
