(Newser) – With the gossip mill churning, Dwayne Wade confirmed last night that he did indeed father a son while on a break from fiance Gabrielle Union. "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," said the Miami Heat star. "So I'm moving on. ... I, my lady and my family have continued to move forward, and I think that's evident with the ring and the proposal that I gave her, with our lives." Wade proposed to Union right before Christmas, E! reports, but the actress has yet to address the love child news publicly.
