Who is Aja Metoyer? Aja Metoyer is the mother of Dwyane Wade’s third child, a baby boy named Xavier Zechariah Wade born Nov. 10, 2013, in Los Angeles. Aja Metoyer and Dwyane Wade likely conceived the child in February 2013, and while the Miami Heat superstar insists he was on a break from Gabrielle Union, who he began dating in 2009 and proposed to in December, weeks after Xavier’s birth, evidence suggests they were still together at the time of the affair.
Who is Aja Metoyer, other than a gossip magnet and NBA baller’s baby momma? Interestingly enough, Aja Metoyer is no rookie when it comes to having children with celebrities. She has at least one kid with actor Damon Wayans Jr., star of the ABC comedy series “Happy Endings.” Wayans is the son of actor Damon Wayans and the nephew of Wayans brothers Keenan Ivory, Shawn and Marlon, all of whom appeared on the ‘90s sketch comedy series “In Living Color.” While TMZ claims Aja Metoyer has two children with Wayans, a recent report suggests they only have one kid, Heavy.com reports.
Who is Aja Metoyer? As per Heavy.com, her full name is Aja Manique Metoyer, and while that name appears on Xavier’s birth certificate, Dwyane Wade’s curiously doesn’t. Nevertheless, Aja Metoyer may have in Dwyane Wade a man willing to take responsibility for his actions and play a role in his child’s life. Reports suggest Wade visited the boy on Christmas when the Heat were in Los Angeles playing the Lakers. “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,” Wade said in a press conference in December, addressing the situation with Aja Metoyer, the L.A. Times reports. Wade also has two children—Zaire and Zion—from his previous marriage to Siohvaughn Funches.
