Former NBA champion Dwayne Wade celebrated his 39th birthday with an out-of-town trip with his wife, Gabrielle Union. The two went on an imaginary trip to Jamaica to leave their children at home as well as spend some alone time.
Wade butt-nudged his #bththdaybehavior with a ritual photo on Instagram, though Union was stalling the scene. While these are all fun and games for the ex-NBA star and 99.99% of the world, these types of photos are a bit weird and downright annoying for Zaire Wade, his 18-year-old son.
Zaire immediately posted a comment expressing her disgust:
“This is not what I wanted to wake up to,” Zaire replied.

His 13-year-old daughter Zaya also dominated the comments section.
“Ayooooo chill, I just got on she” she posted.
In all fairness, 39 looks pretty good on Dwayne Wade. But in defending Zaire and Zaya, it’s never really a great scene to see your father on his birthday suit.
However, the duo has certainly earned the right to celebrate his birthday with a brilliant career behind him. The three-time NBA champion is a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame and will always be remembered as one of the greatest players to have played for the Miami Heat.
Zaire wants to make a name for himself in the basketball world and follow in his father’s footsteps in the NBA. The young lefty guard had a one-year stint at Sierra Canyon High School with Brian James, but has since moved to Brewster Academy in New Hampshire. The 18-year-old prodigy is slowly working on his game and is currently a three-star prospect.
