Dwyane Wade is acknowledging that he fathered a son while separated last year from fiancee and actress Gabrielle Union.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, Wade spoke about the issue before Monday night's Miami Heat game against the Denver Nuggets

Wade says: "I had a time, a part in our break, in our pain and our hurt, a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son that was born healthy,"so I'm moving on."

The Miami Heat guard says he has spent time with his newborn son.

He says he and Union already worked things out about his new child when they got back together.

He proposed to the actresses more than a week ago.

Wade has primary custody of two young sons from his marriage to former wife Siohvaughn Funches.
