Dwyane Wade recently visited his third child, a baby boy, who was born a few months ago to an unidentified woman according to Entertainment Tonight on Dec. 30. Wade proposed to fiancée Gabrielle Union on Dec. 21.

Wade, 31, has known the mother of the baby boy for years and they reportedly hooked up when the Miami Heat star and Union, 41, were on a break.

A source told E! Online that Union was upset about the baby but the newly engaged couple has since worked out the issue privately.

Wade spoke to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show+, whom he had dated since 2009. The separation was largely due to the demands of their work lives, he explained.

"Celebrity relationships [are] very hard," he says. "This was a big year for us and our relationship from the standpoint of she was shooting her show Being Mary Jane, going most of the year. I was dealing with my injuries, trying to win a championship, so we kinda took a step back."

A committed father, Wade has full custody of his two sons – Zion and Zaire -- after a contentious custody battle with his ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches, and is also raising his nephew – Dahveon Morris. He has made no secret that being a father is the most important role in his life, participating in President Obama's Fatherhood Task Force and becoming a New York Times bestselling author for his book A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger than Basketball.

According to the source, Wade has never taken his fatherhood responsibility lightly and has no intention to do so now.

Wade and Union have been dating since 2009 and a Wade said that a September wedding is likely.
