The Miami Heat baller releases a new book that gives insight into who WADE is off the court, by telling the story of his childhood and how it influenced the way he raises his own kids.
The book, A Father First: How My Life Became More Than Basketball, was inspired by the custody battle he had with his ex-wife, SIOHVAUGN WADE, over their two young sons Zaire and Zion, two years ago.
“So many people came up to me in this process. So many fathers, so many men came up to me to congratulate me and to ask me how, how I did it and why I believed I could do it,” the 30-year-old told Associated Press.
“I think the biggest thing when I set out to write a book was just to share my experiences, from when I was a kid, my upbringing, my struggles, my joyous times, to becoming a father.”
WADE says he feels for men trying to be good fathers, “We’re still dealing with the same things, from rags to riches, it really doesn’t matter.”Related Posts
