"We Outside"

Dwyane Wade and his son, Zaire, took in a Los Angeles Sparks game with Kaavia James earlier this week. The celebrity father and his kids were happy to be out and about in the city.


“We outside,” wrote Zaire in the comments section of his father’s post. The young adult received more than 300 likes from fellow Instagram users who equally appreciated the pictures showing the celebrity father with his kids.

“Father, brother, daughter date,” Dwyane said of the night. “I love it,” Lindsay Faulk wrote in the response section of the post. “Love this,” wrote another fan. “She is so adorable,” the supporter said in reference to Kaavia James who stood between her dad and brother.

Kaavia had the opportunity to meet a few players from the Los Angeles Sparks team. The youngster was extremely cool while giving high-fives and handshakes to the athletes. “It’s Kaavia’s world,” one L.A. Sparks fan said. “We’re just living in it.” Several of the team’s supporters agreed with one calling Dwyane Wade’s daughter “Kaavia the superstar.”

Zaire is also building his profile as a superstar. The young adult is following in his father’s footsteps as an incredible basketball player. Zaire is also outspoken when it comes to protecting his family.

It was just a few weeks ago that the young adult wrote a Father’s Day tribute to his dad that also addressed the backlash Dwyane consistently receives for supporting his older daughter, Zaya Wade, in her journey as a member of the LGBTQ+ community.

“All the hate and backlash that @dwyanewade receives for being a good father is crazy to me,” Zaire wrote on Instagram. “A lot of you alls emotions comes (sic) out of your own insecurities from your fatherhood,” the young adult said. “Don’t forecast that on us,” Zaire admonished.

“What more do you want out of your dad than to love and support whatever you do in life,” the young athlete asked. “Despite all the hate and negativity that comes his way, he still continues to be true to his family. Now THAT’S a father.”

Dwyane Wade and his wife, Gabrielle Union, parent four kids together. Kaavia is the couple’s only biological child together. Zaire and his younger sister, Zaya, are Dwyane’s kids with ex-wife Siouvaughn Funches.
