Dwyane Wade and his sons, Zion and Zaire, took a ride on the camel’s back during their recent visit to the zoo. The Wade men sat together on the creature’s hump while smiling for the camera that also captured Dwyane’s nephew. “The things you do for your kids.. Oh No,” tweeted Dwyane. The Miami ‘Heat’ player and his sons interacted with several other animals in addition to the camel before calling it quits at the zoo.
Wade recently spoke with Jetset magazine about his sense of style, and why he thinks it’s important to look fly. “I’m a role model to my sons, more so than to anyone else,” said Dwyane. “Just like when my dad got up every morning; even when he was delivering in the truck, every Friday I’d see him get up and dress up and that made me say, ‘That’s how you go to work and that’s how you present yourself. I understand that the way I leave the house is the impression I leave with my kids.”
It’s been ten years since the Miami ‘Heat’ drafted Dwyane to play for their team, and the ball player couldn’t be more grateful for the many opportunities the city has afforded him. “When I got down here it was ‘Whoa what is this?’ It was a different world for me,” explains the ball player, “but I’ve kind of made my way into being adjusted here. This is my home. This will always be my home. I grew up here from age 21. Now, at age of 30, I’ve been through so much in my life here; I have a lot of history here.”
Zion,5, and Zaire,10, are Wade and ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches’ only children together. The basketball star also fathers his nephew.
