Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union proud of 12-year-old Zaya, pronoun change

Dwyane Wade is sharing a proud parenting moment.  

During Tuesday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the former NBA player talked to DeGeneres about how he has supported his 12-year-old since she told her parents she wanted to be referred to using female pronouns.

“Once Zaya… originally born Zion as a boy – came home and said, ‘Hey, so I want to talk to you guys. I think going forward I’m ready to live my truth, and I want to be referenced as ‘she’ and ‘her.’ I would love for you guys to call me Zaya,’ ” he recalled. “So internally, now it’s our job to… go out and get information, to reach out to every relationship that we have.”

Wade said his wife, Gabrielle Union, reached out to the cast of the FX show “Pose” to help get informed. “Pose” is a drama series centered around Black and Latino LGBTQ characters.
