The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, February 11. “We take our roles and our responsibilities as parents very seriously.” He continued, “When our child comes home with a question, when our child comes home with an issue, when our child comes home 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. And that doesn’t change because sexuality is now involved in it.” Dwyane Wade on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ Michael Rozman/Warner Bros.

I think going forward, I’m ready to live my truth. And I want to be referenced as she and her. I would love for you guys to call me Zaya,’” the athlete recalled. “Now it’s our job to one, go out and get information, to reach out to every relationship that we have.” Read more: Us Weekly
