Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are in celebration mode. The couple’s daughter, Zaya Wade, is celebrating her thirteenth birthday today.
“Happy Birthday baby,” Gabrielle exclaimed in an Instagram post on Friday (May 29). “I can’t believe you are 13,” the actress said. “You are such an inspiration and motivation to get my butt up every day and fight. When I’m weary, frustrated, full of rage, I see your face and your joy and you living your best life and I want that for all of us. I love you so much, kid!! Enjoy this day and every day knowing you are loved, protected, respected, admired, and celebrated.”
Dwyane Wade also took to Instagram to commemorate his daughter’s birthday. “I wanna take this moment to acknowledge you Zaya on your 13th birthday,” the celebrity father wrote to his teen. “I’ve woken up every day this week with low energy and not a lot of faith in people. But waking up and watching you smile, watching you walk in your truth, and live your life your way is one of the greatest gifts I’ve been able to experience in my life,” Wade continued.
“In a world where the color of your skin is deemed a threat, you continue to be the bravest person I know,” Dwyane told his daughter. “I’m gonna stand by your side until there isn’t anymore standing left to do,” the celebrity father declared.
“I love you more than words can articulate,” Dwyane wrote to Zaya. “I hope you feel all of my love today and every day of your life. You’re Bold, You’re courageous, You are Zaya. Happy Birthday we LOVE you!”
Zaya Wade is Dwyane Wade’s second-oldest child. The celebrity father has four kids in all. Stay tuned for more celebrity father news!
