As a follow-up to the GossipCenter story on Dwyane Wade's love child, it turns out he got his freak on with the babymama while he wasn’t together with Gabrielle Union.

The 31-year-old Miami Heat all-star explained that he and his now-fiancé were split up when he met the woman with whom he conceived the one-month-old boy.

Wade noted, "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."

"But, like I said, this is something, obviously, private for my family that we will continue to deal with as a family. But we have a blessing to the bloodline, to the Wade bloodline."

Last year, Dwyane told Oprah that he and Gabrielle were doing well with his two sons from his previous marriage- "We're a family, and we're growing as a family every day. And I think that's the great thing about it. We have so much more room to improve as a family and it's awesome."
