NBA star Dwyane Wade recently spent time with his new baby boy he fathered with a woman while on a break with now-fiancé Gabrielle Union, a source close to the couple tells ET.
Wade, 31, and Union, 41, who were officially engaged last week, have worked through the issue privately as a couple, and the "Bring It On" star was aware of the child before their engagement. Wade has known the mother of his youngest son "for many years."
The long-time couple, who have been dating since 2009, are still very much committed to spending their lives together, and according to the Miami Heat star, a September wedding is likely.
A committed father, Wade has full custody of his two sons with his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches and is also raising his nephew. He has participated in President Obama's Fatherhood Task Force and became a New York Times bestselling author for his book "A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger than Basketball."
