Dwyane with kids and trophy

Dwyane Wade wants his kids to be involved in every aspect of his life. The Miami ‘Heat’ player recently sat down with Jet magazine to talk about his life, and told the media source that Zion,5, and Zaire,11, have the opportunity to choose the Summer fun spots.


“I’m the kind of parent who asks my kids questions like what would be your ideal thing to do in the summer? This year it’s Disney World,” said Wade. “Even though I make the final decision, I want them to feel involved. Not only in vacations but other things as well.”

Dwyane also talked about the court’s decision to grant him full custody of his sons a few months back saying, “I didn’t set out to get full custody but I wasn’t able to see my kids the way I wanted and I’m not a parent who’s going to run away from his responsibilities. I was probably a terrible husband, but I pride myself on being a good dad…It’s been six years and hopefully one day she and I can get to the point where it’s a lot easier than it is now to co-parent.”

Wade married his high school sweetheart, Siohvaughn Funches, in the early years of his career bit divorced in 2007. The NBA player is now viewed a role model for single dads everywhere.
