The “Think Like a Man” actress was upset about the baby news and distanced herself from Wade, a source told E! News.
But the duo have not only reconciled, they are now heading towards matrimony. The Miami Heat player got down on bended knee Dec. 21 to propose to his girlfriend of four years.
“She said YES!!!” Wade tweeted.
Shortly after, Union, 41, showed off her 8.5-carat, cushion-cut diamond ring on Twitter.
While there are no details on the woman Wade reportedly had a baby with, a source told Gossip Cop that the little one was conceived while he was “on a break” from his relationship with Union.
A rep for Union has yet to respond to the Daily News’ request for comment.
The pro athlete already has two children — Zion and Zaire — from his first marriage to Siohvaughn Funches. The couple’s ugly six-year divorce battle got even uglier in July when Funches took to the streets of Chicago claiming to be homeless.
“Mr. Wade has provided a very generous settlement to Ms. Funches to continue to live a wonderful lifestyle for the rest of her life,” his lawyer James Pritikin said in a statement released to the Daily News.
