Ever since news broke that Dwyane Wade had fathered a third child to a mystery woman, the Internet has been buzzing about who it could be. TMZ was able to get a copy of the baby's birth certificate and claims that the baby mother's name is Aja Metoyer, 30.
According to the site, Metoyer gave birth to Wade's son Xavier Zechariah Wade, on Nov. 10, six weeks before he proposed to actress Gabrielle Union. The birth certificate does not list Wade as the father even though the baby boy has his last name.
Reportedly Union and Wade were on a break when the baby was conceived even though there are reports claiming that it's a lie and the couple was still together. During an appearance on the Jay Leno show, Wade did say that he and Union were on a split at the beginning of the year but had reconciled by the time summer rolled around
"In our time apart, in our break, in our pain and our hurt, a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son who was born healthy," Wade said during a press conference recently.
Sources told E! News that Union knew about the baby before accepting Wade's proposal and at the first she was angry by the news. Apparently the two have worked out their differences. How Wade and Metoyer know each other is still a bit sketchy but a report by Heavy.com claims that the Miami Heat star has known her since at least 2010.
In May of 2010 he tweeted "Happy Mother's Day" to a bunch of women and Metoyer's Twitter handle was one of them.
Sources told TMZ that the two are working together peacefully and Wade has already saw his newborn son several times, with the most recent being on Christmas Day while he was in Los Angeles to play the Lakers. Some other interesting facts about Metoyer: she reportedly has two other children, one of which is said to have been fathered by actor Damon Wayans Jr.
There are reports that both of her children are with Wayans and according to MediaTakeOut Wayans and Metoyer were high school sweethearts.
