Good Afternoon Lyfechat luvs! Today is Celebrity Tuesday. For this weeks C.T. we would like to shine the lyfe light on single father celebrities. Granted we get to see these celebrity dad’s do their thing in the tabloids but no one really gives them their props on how they hold it down with their kids.
Today I would like to give props to Mr. Dwyane Wade, you know who he is, one of my all time favs on the Miami Heat…well I wanna tell you that’s not the only reason why he’s one of my favs, he is also one of the best celebrity dad’s I’ve read about. So here’s a little insight on how Mr. Wade holds it down as a great single dad…
Wade and his ex-wife Siohvaughn has a rather messy divorce when she accused him of abandoning their two boys Zion and Zaire; denying all allegations, Wade persistently fought back and forth in court and finally won full custody of their two boys after proving he had never abandoned the two. Wade received a “Father of the Year” award from the National Father’s Day Committee and, in 2011, President Obama appointed him to a parenting program geared toward encouraging fathers to become more involved in their children’s lives. In June 2011, Wade wrote a great piece for Newsweek in which he described fatherhood as being the most rewarding part of his life. “All children need their fathers, but boys especially need fathers to teach them how to be men…I had a duty to fight to be with my kids, and I did.”
Dwyane Wade, we appreciate you and men like you! Keep up the good work and continue to be a wonderful example for these young fathers out here!-#Lyfechat
