Dwyane Wade gets candid with sons Zaire,10, and Zion,5, on a photo shoot for his memoir, A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball. Wade’s book is set to release on September 4, 2012.
Written to inspire and motivate dads, Dwyane discusses his journey as a single father who manages to balance a flourishing career with obligations at home. Readers will learn of the Miami ‘Heat’ players initial reaction when sole custody was awarded to him, and how he copes with NBA life and parenthood. Various coaches and mentors who have positively impacted Wade are also featured in the memoir, and the basketball player touches on his own childhood experience of growing up in a single parent home.
Wade has served on several committees that encourage fathers to be involved in their children’s lives since becoming a single dad last year. The Miami ‘Heat’ player is currently raising his two sons and nephew.
