It was just a matter of time before Aja Metoyer’s identity would be uncovered once Entertainment Tonight broke the story that Dwyane Wade had fathered a child during the time that he and his longtime girlfriend — now fiance — Gabrielle Union were on a “break” from the relationship earlier this year. The couple had gotten engaged just days before the story broke, and they displayed her 8.5 carat diamond engagement ring on Instagram.

When Dwyane Wade was confronted by reporters that same evening just prior to the Miami Heat basketball game, he made a public acknowledgement of the veracity of the report. He had said at that time — less than 24 hours before the Aja Metoyer was identified — “…I had a time … in our pain and our hurt, (but) a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son that was born healthy. So, I’m moving on.”

TMZ has now uncovered the necessary public record to end the speculation, as some blogs alleging the baby mama to be someone else, and widely distributing pictures of what turns out to have been the wrong woman.

But TMZ obtained the birth certificate of the love child, Xavier Zechariah Wade, who was born on November 10, 2013 in Los Angeles. The 30-year-old Aja Metoyer is the mother.

Although his name is not on the birth certificate, the child does have the surname of Dwyane Wade, and is his third child. He he has sole custody of his two sons from his marriage to ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches.

At this stage, very little is known about Aja Metoyer; biography details from TMZ are limited. According to the site, she is the mother of two children by Damon Wayans Jr. who is ‘In Living Color’ comedy icon Damon Wayans’ son.

Her past and present relationship with the Dwyane Wade is also unknown. Was she a girlfriend? A mistress? Likewise, her occupation is not known. The attractive, long-haired beauty could very well be a model or actress. The story is only now developing and more will be uncovered in time, so check back for updates.
