Between Gabrielle Union's long résumé of impressive movie roles and Dwyane Wade's three NBA championship titles, it's no surprise that the couple made this year's Time 100 list of influential people. While their professional accomplishments are truly remarkable, Gabrielle and Dwyane are most inspired by the kids in their lives. Dubbed the "champions of change" on Time's cover, the couple opened up about raising strong children.
"Freedom exists in so many different forms, but we are so blessed to be in a household where we have free children. We have a daughter that is almost 2, that the world has seen is bound to nothing but whatever is in her heart and on her soul at the moment. And it's beautiful to watch truly free children," Gabrielle explained in a video. "We have another daughter who's 13, who has the freedom to be exactly who she is, who she was born to be, to be her most authentic self. She doesn't ask permission to exist. That is wildly inspiring."
For Dwyane, who was incredibly supportive when his daughter Zaya came out as transgender this year, there's nothing more rewarding than seeing her be true to herself. "We're inspired by our kids," said Dwyane. "The way they look at us, the way they look to us for leadership, for guidance, for their moments of bravery."
