For basketball player Dwyane Wade, there is nothing more important to him than his kids.
Being a father is the most important job to him, and he's continuing to talk all about out now that he has a book devoted to the subject called A Father First: How My Life Became Bigger Than Basketball.
Wade was granted sole custody of his sons Zaire, 10, and Zion, 5 in 2006, and nothing has been the same for him.
Here's what he says:
“As a child I grew up with aspirations to one day be a professional basketball player, and I am living that dream every day as a proud member of the Miami HEAT. However, the daily role I play in the lives of my two children is the single most significant undertaking of my life, and the job I take most seriously.
“While my basketball career has brought me many rewards — including an NBA Championship in 2006 and an Olympic gold medal in the 2008 Summer Games — my children are the two greatest gifts of my life."
It's so amazing to hear anyone talk like this, let alone a basketball superstar.
With so many distractions that come with the job, it warms our hearts that he's so devoted.
