What An Incredible Gift!

Now, this is how you celebrate. Dwyane Wade gave his son, Zaire, an epic Sweet 16 birthday surprise that came in the form of balloons and an Audi SUV.

Wade, who lives in Ohio, traveled to South Florida where his son resides just to gift him with the car. “I’m sitting in Zaire’s car right now,” the NBA star said in a Snapchat post this past weekend. “I flew in,” Dwyane added. “He don’t (sic) know I’m here. I got the balloons behind me.”


Dwyane went on to tell his social media fans how he would surprise his oldest son. “I’m going to let this [window] up and the balloons are going to come out of the car. We open the door and he’s going to see pops in the car. I’m so excited for him [to] get his brand new car.” Zaire and his friends were also pretty stoked as they sprinted towards the Audi truck. Zaire jumped into his father’s arms in gratitude for the incredible gift.

It was just moments before he surprised his son with a new car that Dwyane Wade reflected on how the years have passed since Zaire made him a father for the first time. “It’s crazy to think 16 years ago, Feb. 4, 2002, that guy came and changed my life man,” Wade told his fans.

The celebrity father went on to say, “Because I had him to look up to me and watch my every step, watch my every move, I wanted to have the life that we have for him. He started everything. So happy 16th birthday to Z man. It’s going to be a good day. Your dad loves [you]. I’m just along the journey to watch you grow. And I’m enjoying what I see so far, man.” Beautiful!

Dwyane Wade is the proud father of three children. Stay tuned for more celebrity father news!
