Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade just got engaged, but their extended family tree just keeps getting more complicated. And more star-studded.
On December 30, Dwyane confirmed that he had fathered a child with another woman during a time when he and Gabrielle were on a break. The next day, TMZ reported that his baby mama is a woman named Aja Metoyer, and that Aja named her son Xavier Zechariah Wade. The site added that Aja also has two other sons.
But that’s not even the half of it. Just hours later, TMZ updated its original story to say that sources tell them the father of Aja’s other children is none other than actor Damon Wayans Jr, who currently plays Coach on the Zooey Deschanel comedy New Girl.
Like we said, this family tree is getting really complicated. In addition to New Girl, Damon starred as Brad on the just-cancelled comedy Happy Endings. He’s also the son of Damon Wayans, which makes him part of one of Hollywood’s best-known comedic families, tied to the likes of In Living Color, White Chicks, and The Scary Movie franchise.
TMZ adds that Damon is very involved in his kids’ lives. And considering that Dwyane also plans to be very involved in little Xavier’s life, we’d say there’s a very good chance that the two will cross paths.
Is it just us, or is this starting to sound like the makings of a perfect reality show? We know we’d watch. Just tossing that out there...
