Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches-Wade are not on the same page about their child.
As you will likely remember, the basketball player’s daughter, Zaya Wade, came out as a transgender female back in 2020.
Wade has been super supportive throughout it all, and very publicly! He explained during an appearance on Ellen at the time: He added: Now, two years later, the athlete is finding himself in a legal battle over the child’s ability to legally transition. Related: Dwyane & Gabrielle’s Sweet Birthday Tribute To Zaya Siohvaugn filed a legal petition against the recognition of her daughter’s legal change of gender and issuance of a new birth certificate to reflect that change, according to legal documents.
The child, who is 15 years old, must get a court order and permission from both of her parents to go through with the change.
