Dwyane Wade fatherhood is his priority
Dwyane Wade is not only a basketball superstar, he’s also a wonderful father. The 30-year-old player opens up about his job as a father in his new book, ‘A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball’.
“As a child I grew up with aspirations to one day be a professional basketball player, and I am living that dream every day as a proud member of the Miami HEAT. However, the daily role I play in the lives of my two children is the single most significant undertaking of my life, and the job I take most seriously”, he confesses.
Wade is talking about his struggle with life as a child in Chicago and his success as a player. But above everything, he prefers to be a father.
Back in 2006, Wade was granted sole custody of his sons Zaire, 10, and Zion, 5. Ever since then, his boys are his priority.
“While my basketball career has brought me many rewards — including an NBA Championship in 2006 and an Olympic gold medal in the 2008 Summer Games — my children are the two greatest gifts of my life”, he explains.
