Zaya Wade’s Heartfelt Tribute To Dad Dwyane Wade Will Melt Your Heart

by Gee NY

Zaya Wade, 17, shared a touching tribute to her dad, NBA legend Dwyane Wade, on Father’s Day, and it’s a testament to their extraordinary father-daughter bond.

Dwyane has been a steadfast supporter of his transgender daughter, showcasing a relationship that truly shines in Hollywood.

Zaya posted a heartfelt tribute on Instagram, captioning a carousel of two black-and-white photos:

“the best there is. Happy Father’s Day @dwyanewade 🖤.”

The photos, captured from a director’s monitor, beautifully depict the close bond between them.

In the first photo, Dwyane and Zaya exchange loving and caring looks, their mutual admiration evident. The second photo shows Zaya smiling brightly while Dwyane looks down, laughing—a candid moment that perfectly captures their joy and connection.

Zaya’s 22-year-old brother, Zaire, commented “Indeed,” highlighting the family’s shared sentiment. Dwyane shares Zaya and Zaire with ex-wife Siovaughn Funches.

He also has a 10-year-old son, Xavier, with ex Aja Metoyer, a 5-year-old daughter, Kaavia James, with wife Gabrielle Union, and is the legal guardian of his 21-year-old nephew, Dahveon Morris.

While Dwyane has strong bonds with all his children, his advocacy for Zaya and the LGBTQ+ community stands out. In 2023, he and Union were honored by the NAACP for their activism.

During his acceptance speech, Dwyane praised Zaya’s courage and grace amid public scrutiny, saying:

“I’ve sat back and watched how gracefully you have taken on the public scrutiny… You’ve made me a better human just simply by being who you were born to be. Our baby girl. Thank you for showing the world what courage looks like.”

Whether Dwyane is supporting Zaya’s right to “simply be who she was born to be” or cheering her on as she struts the runway at Paris Fashion Week, his pride in his daughter is always clear.
