Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and his wife Gabrielle Union welcomed a daughter into their family on Nov. 7, joyous news that firmly connected with his teammates and head coach.

“I’m excited for him,” Richardson said. “First daughter, so that’ll be fun. I think it’ll be good for Gab to have another girl in the house.”

In the days that follow, there will no doubt continue to be an outpouring of support and congratulatory messages for Wade and Union. In Wade’s case, he’s one of the NBA’s most beloved players and is in the midst of what he’s dubbed “One Last Dance,” marking the 16th and final season of his legendary NBA career.

Wade and Union were married in 2014, with this being their first child together. The couple are currently raising Wade’s three sons and his nephew, a family that now welcomes a daughter into the fold.

The child’s birth resulted in Wade sitting out Wednesday night’s home game against the San Antonio Spurs. He’ll also miss Friday night’s home clash against Indiana, while his status for Saturday’s contest at American Airlines Arena against Washington remains uncertain.
