Zaya Wade is living her best life!
Late last month, the young lady entered her teen years and celebrated it in a huge way.
Zaya Wade recently shared a heartwarming photo with her father Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union, writing “Stronger together #happypride.” The picture was taken at Zaya’s medieval kingdom-themed 13th birthday celebration.
Not only was a 13th birthday party, it also doubled as a celebration of Pride month in a creative fashion with a medieval theme.
Zaya sports long purple braids and wears a crown, while Dwyane Wade shows off his recently dyed red hair.
On the teenager’s birthday, Union posted a sweet mommy-daughter photo on Instagram, along with a touching birthday tribute.
“Happy Birthday baby!!! I can’t believe you are 13!! @zayawade you are such an inspiration and motivation to get my butt up every day and fight. When I’m weary, frustrated, full of rage, I see your face and your joy and you living your best life and I want that for all of us. I love you sooooo much kid!! Enjoy this day and every day knowing you are loved, protected, respected, admired, and celebrated.”
The 38-year-old Wade also shared a heartfelt message to his daughter. “I wanna take this moment to acknowledge you Zaya on your 13th birthday‼️ I’ve woken up every day this week with low energy and not a lot of faith in people. But waking up and watching you smile, watching you walk in your truth, and live your life your way is one of the greatest gifts I’ve been able to experience in my life.”
He continued, “In a world where the color of your skin is deemed a threat, you continue to be the bravest person I know and I’m gonna stand by your side until there isn’t anymore standing left to do. I love you more than words can articulate. I hope you feel all of my love today and every day of your life. You’re Bold, You’re courageous, You are Zaya. Happy Birthday we LOVE you‼️”
