Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union might be superstars in their own right, but they certainly made time to support their 12-year-old child Zaya at a recent school performance.

In one clip, the children’s choir channels their Kanye West Sunday choir and sings a handful of gospel songs.

Dwyane Wade wrote,

“J.O.Y. ~ A Feeling Of Great Pleasure And Happiness! That’s What Watching Zaya Sing And Dance Last Night Felt Like For Our Family”


He also shared a snapshot of Zaya after the show, courtesy of @jsnrod.

He wrote,

“Enough said”

He shared a photo of their tribe on his Instagram story.

Gabrielle Union also shared a few moments.

Dwyane Wade explained last month that Zaya, born Zion, identifies as a female.

He told Ellen DeGeneres on Feb. 10:

“Me and my wife, Gabrielle Union, we are proud. When I say proud, we are proud parents of a child in the LGBTQ+ community, and we’re proud allies as well. We take our roles and our responsibilities as parents very seriously. So when our child comes home with a question, when our child comes with an issue, when our child comes with anything, it’s our job as parents to listen to that, to give them the best information that we can, the best feedback that we can. That doesn’t change because sexuality is now involved in it.”

“When Zaya, our 12-year-old came home, first Zion, I don’t know if everyone knows, originally named Zion, born as a boy, came home and said ‘Hey, so I wanna talk to you guys. I think going forward I’m ready to live my truth. And I wanna be referenced as ‘she’ and ‘her.’ I would love for you guys to call me Zaya.’ So internally, it’s our job to 1, go out and get information, to reach out to every relationship that we have. My wife reached out to everybody on the cast of ‘POSE’. We’re just trying to figure out as much information we can to make sure that we give our child the best opportunity to be her best self.”

“Once Zion came home and said, ‘Hey call me Zaya, I’m ready to take on this.’ I looked at her and said ‘You are a leader. This is your opportunity to be a voice. Right now it’s through us because she’s 12-years-old, but eventually it will be through her.”
