Dwyane Wade's eldest son Zaire throws his support behind transgender sister Zaya

Wade's actress wife, Gabrielle Union, took to Twitter to introduce "Zaya".

"Meet Zaya", Union, 47, captioned the clip Tuesday.

In a candid interview on Ellen, future Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade recalled the moment his 12-year-old came out to him and Gabrielle Union and that he hopes to give her "the best opportunity to be her best self".

She continues, "Be true, and don't really care what the "stereotypical way" of being you is".

The retired National Basketball Association star explained that Zaya was born as Zion, assigned male at birth, but wanted to live her truth. "She's compassionate, loving, whip-smart and we are so proud of her".

He said that after talking to Barr and Burr, he anxious Giuliani's information might not be trustworthy. They were not authorized to discuss the investigation publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

And in a second post, Union said: "Huge huge huge THANK YOU to everyone whose dms I slid into, friends, & family who provided information, resources, love & encouragement".

Zaire and Zaya Wade are Dwyane Wade's children from a previous relationship. "At 12-years-old a lot of us didn't know who we were and we figure it out until we get to high school or college, or we're in our 30's", Wendy explained with tears in her eyes. Even through hard times, you gotta push through, it's very worth it. "I don't care what they think Z, you are my best friend and I love you kid". Love and light good people.

Zaya responds: 'Yes. I know it can be tough, definitely, but I think you push through, and you be the best you. "When you look in the mirror and say "hi" to yourself". "So when our child comes home with a question, when a child comes home with an issue, when a child comes home with anything, it's our job as parents to listen to that, to give them the best information that we can, to give them the best feedback that we can - and that doesn't change because sexuality is now involved in it".

As Dwyane disclosed on Ellen, when Zaya came out as transgender, Gabrielle took it upon herself to reach out to the cast of Pose - an LGBTQ+ themed FX series examining the history of trans and gay people, especially people of color, in 1980s New York City - in order to help educate herself and her husband on how to be a better ally.
