Retired NBA superstar Dwayne Wade has officially filed a petition to change the name and gender of his 15-year-old son, Zion, who now goes by Zaya.
Wade, who is married to supermodel Gabrielle Union, has publically acknowledged their child is a girl since he was 12. Wade said the child "came out" at just eight years old.
The NBA star filed for the name to be changed to Zaya Malachi Airamis Wade and the gender is changed to female with the Los Angeles Superior Court on Thursday.
According to the petition, Wade has full authority to take this action and that the teen’s mother, Wade’s ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches, is aware.
Back in 2020, Wade took to Instagram to share the news of his son becoming his daughter when he posted, “Everyone allow her to re-introduce herself her name is Zaya Wade!” The Instagram post has since been taken down.

“Last night was Zaya’s first red carpet and we couldn’t have been prouder of how she handled the questions that were asked of her,” the former Miami Heat guard wrote. “She has emerged as one of the young faces and voices for the LGBTQ+ community. #truthawards.”
Wade has spoken about the situation openly. While appearing on the "All the Smoke" podcast, Wade said, “I watched my son, from day one, become into who she now eventually come into."
