Dwyane Wade is opening up about the "hardest thing" he ever had to do.

In his upcoming ESPN documentary, D. Wade: Life Unexpected, the former NBA player recalls the moment he had to tell Gabrielle Union he was expecting a child with another woman after the couple got back together after taking a "break".

"I had a child with someone else and I had to tell her," he said, according to Entertainment Tonight. "Hardest thing I've ever had to do is man up and tell Gabrielle Union that I've had a child with somebody else. I couldn't sleep. I wasn't eating."

He added, "When you hold something in that you know is going to come out, and you have this information, and you know it's gonna fuck somebody's life up, that you care about, that you love, if it don't hurt you, then you're not human."

Dwyane and Gabrielle started dating in 2009. During their break the 38-year-old welcomed a son, Xavier, with Basketball Wives star Aja Metoyerin, reports E! News.

"Me and Gab just went through something that you never want to go through, and we still came out of it," he said.

Now, together, Dwyane and Gabrielle share Xavier, as well as Zaire and Zaya, from his previous marriage to Siohvaughn Funches, as well as his nephew, Dahveon. They also welcomed their daughter Kaavia James in 2018.
