Those "personal reasons" for Dwyane Wade missing the Miami Heat's game against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday became clearer Thursday.

National Basketball Association star Dwyane Wade on Thursday took to social media to announce the birth of a baby girl with his wife, actress Gabrielle Union. The Wades did not immediately reveal the baby's name.

They first listed the lyrics to Bill Withers" classic feel-good song, Lovely Day, which include: "When I wake up in the mornin" love, And the sunlight hurts my eyes, ' and, "Then I look at you, And the world's alright with me / Just one look at you, And I know it's gonna be a lovely day'.

It comes after Gabrielle, 46, revealed her heartbreaking struggle to conceive and multiple miscarriages previous year. Welcome to the party sweet girl!' I never wanted children before Dwyane, " she wrote in the book. His three sons are Zaire, Xavier and Zion, and Zaire Wade is now a junior at American Heritage High in Plantation and a college basketball recruit that has received a scholarship offer from Nebraska, Union's alma mater.


The sportsman also has another son, Xavier, three, who was conceived with another woman when he had split from Gabrielle. She and Dwyane tied the knot in August 2014 after five years together.

Gabrielle also opened up in her book about how hard she found it being asked by other women whether she wants kids.

'A lot of people, especially people that have fertility issues, just say "no" because that's a lot easier than being honest about whatever is actually going on.

She said: 'Once a month I look like I'm in my second trimester because I'm bloated. He also takes care of his 17-year-old nephew, Dahveon Morris.
