While actress Gabrielle Union and NBA star Dwyane Wade may have just got engaged last week, the couple are making news for an entirely different reason.

New reports claim the Miami Heat guard recently fathered a son with another woman.

Entertainment Tonight reports Wade fathered a baby boy with a woman he knew for years while on a break from Union. According to a source, Union knew of the child before she accepted his marriage proposal.

That had to be one heck of an awkward conversation.

Wade confirmed the report at a press conference Monday prior to his team’s game in Denver.

According to Florida’s Sun-Sentinel, he said, “I had a time, a part in our break, in our pain and our hurt, a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son that was born healthy.” He added, “So I’m moving on.”

After the news broke on Monday, Union tweeted:


All seems to be good on all fronts. I’m doubting that Gabrielle would have gotten engaged without thinking this all through. She’s one smart cookie.
