Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, 31, has confirmed he is the father of a baby boy born last month to Aja Metoyer, 31 – not his fiancé actress Gabrielle Union, 41, according to the Los Angeles Times.

He said during a Denver, Colo. news conference on Dec. 30, 2013, “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.”

The Times notes the “break” was a brief separation from Union, who Wade has dated since 2009.

TMZ reports that Wade’s third son, Xavier Zechariah Wade, was born on Nov. 10 in Los Angeles. A source told TMZ Wade is not listed on the birth certificate as the father.

Wade said during the press event Monday that he and Union have “continued to move forward,” noting that was “evident with the ring and the proposal” of marriage he has made to her.

According to the Times, Wade’s two older sons, Zaire and Zion, are from his prior marriage to Siohvaughn Funches. The two split in 2007 and their divorce became final in 2010.
