Dwyane Wade has been more than supportive of his son, who realized he's a girl trapped in a boy's body. He's been supporting his son Zion during this journey of becoming Zaya, and the whole family has been united in this quest.

The proud dad always stood by his 12-year-old son regardless of all that haters had to say, and Gabrielle Union also offered her complete support at all times.

The latest reports revealed that his son would go by the name Zaya .

Wade has been really open about all of this and about what his whole family has been experiencing these days because this was a challenge for everyone.

The Shade Room has the latest details on the matter, and you can learn these below.

TSR writes that 'while they have been facing a lot of criticism, #DwyaneWade opens up about what the learning process has been for his family.'

TSR continued and revealed that Wade even says Zaya has been their 'leader' - in other words, she introduced the family to gender identities 'they had not been aware of previously.'

People continue to show very little support, as you will see in the comments.

Someone said: 'I need to hear from his Real Mom! Nobody had interviewed her!!!'

A follower posted this: 'Y’all can stop having gender reveals now ... just wait until your kid tells you what they are.'

Someone else said: 'okay, so he wants ppl to respect his 'privacy,' but every other damn day he's doing interviews DISCUSSING his privacy.'

One commenter had this to say: 'Until transgenders can start going through hormonal changes, able to bear children and have menstrual periods, please stop saying this foolishness. A man has no idea of the changes that comes with a woman's body. This is unfair to women for what we endure. Be a supportive father, but this is too much.'

An Instagrammer said: 'No disrespect to D Wade & his family or anyone else transitioning but idk in my opinion 12 years old is a bit too young... but that's just me.'

What do you think about all this?
