Dwyane Wade was on site to celebrate the 9th birthday of his youngest son, Xavier, whom he shares with Basketball Wives cast member Aja Métoyer. In a video posted to Instagram by @TheNeighborhoodTalk, Xavier looks pretty happy surrounded by family, friends, and a LEGO character. His dad and grandfather hype him up as the crowd sings “Happy Birthday.”
The story around Metoyer and Wade’s botched relationship went public when the news of her pregnancy hit the media in 2013. Métoyer became pregnant while Wade was allegedly on a break from a romantic relationship with Gabrielle Union. Wade proposed to Union in December 2014 after their brief split.
Métoyer told her side of the “break baby” fiasco when she was cast on the sixth season of VH1’s Basketball Wives in 2017. As the story unraveled, the circumstances caused some to view Métoyer as a “homewrecker.”
According to OK Magazine, the reality star knew Wade for 10 years before their brief relationship. They found themselves single simultaneously, and a quick fling resulted in their son. Although the timing looked bad, Métoyer stuck to her story of not being “the other woman.”
