Dwyane Wade Petitions To Legally Change Daughter Zaya Wade's Name

Dwyane Wade is supporting his daughter, Zaya! Earlier this week the retired NBA star filed a petition with the L.A. Superior Court to legally change his 15-year-old daughter's name to Zaya Wade after she came out as transgender in 2020. In the legal docs obtained by NBC News, Dwyane claims that he has the authority to make the decision on the teen's behalf, noting that his ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches, was also notified of the request.
