More drama continues to unfold in the saga of Dwayne Wade and his new baby from a girl other than his fiancé.
Just days after announcing his engagement with Gabrielle Union, New York Daily News reported that the Miami Heat star has fathered a baby with Aja Metoyer - a two-month old baby named Xavier Zachariah Wade. While this comes as a suprise given that Wade and Union had been dating for some years now, the NBA star did acknowledge the baby as his and was conceived while he and Gabrielle were on a "break".

So who is Dwayne's baby momma, Aja Metoyer? Here are three things you should know about her:
1. She has two kids with another famous personality.
Aja Metoyer has two other children, both girls, with actor Damon Wayans Jr. Hollywood Life quoted Wayans' remarks to TMZ, saying, "I really have nothing to do with Aja's situation (now). We both live completely separate lives, aside from co-parenting." He added, in a LA Times interview, as noted in the report, "My concern are my daughters and that they don't get hurt in any of this." However, Damon did confirm that his kids with Aja "love their little brother."
2. Dwayne and Aja have known each other for years.
It wasn't a one night stand for the two. As a matter of fact, Dwayne Wade has had a long standing cordial relationship with Aja Metoyer. In 2010, Wade had wished Metoyer a Happy Mother's Day, reports Hollywood Life. Also, the fact that little Xavier has his dad's last name is proof of good relations between the two. Notably, according to a report from Reality Wives, Metoyer claims that she and Wade have been seeing each other for nine years already, even while he was still married to his former wife, Siovaughn Funches.
3. Gabrielle knows and she understands.
Gabrielle Union knows about Aja Metoyer. In another report by Hollywood Life, Union says she is not upset about the situation, even tweeting about it. BlackSportsOnline also reports that Metoyer allegedly wrote a letter to Union last February. The letter noted details about her relationship with her fiancé, saying he was with her while they (Wade and Union) were still together and not on a "break" as alleged.
The letter allegedly read,
"Ohh yea hi Ms. Union. Good to see you stuck around and have a few more pieces of clothing inside of his house [sic]. The kitchen looks great by the way. I love the new counter tops. I would also like to thank Rich, the chef for his amazing breakfast. His cookies are the best.
And last but not the least, I'd like to thank Dwayne for always making me feel comfortable on your side of the bed, the one with the two drawers. Think the picture is the one with you and Sanaa Lathan in it.
Also Gabrielle, you are a little too old to be making Valentines day Photo albums [sic]. Leave that to the young girs your man cheats on you with. Don't believe me, i took a picture of the picture.
FYI you man likes fat a---s you might need to get you one. Last but not least, I will send you a pucture of the bags your man left in the hotel room i f--ed him in.lol [sic]."
