Dwyane Wade opened up about letting his wife, Hollywood actress, Gabrielle Union know he had welcomed another child with Basketball Wives star, Aja Metoyerin, in 2013.

"I had a child with someone else, and I had to tell her. Hardest thing I've ever had to do is man up and tell Gabrielle Union that I've had a child with somebody else," Wade said in a clip from his upcoming ESPN documentary D. Wade: Life Unexpected, per ET. "I couldn't sleep. I wasn't eating.

"When you hold something in that you know is going to come out, and you have this information and you know it's gonna f*ck somebody's life up, that you care about, that you love, if it don't hurt you, then you're not human," the NBA star. "Me and Gab just went through something that you never want to go through, and we still came out of it."

Despite the shocking news, Wade and Union tied the knot in 2014. "She wasn't just marrying me, she was marrying all this baggage." The couple welcomed daughter Kaavia via surrogate in 2018.

D. Wade: Life Unexpected airs on ESPN on Sunday, February 23, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
