Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade welcomed a new daughter on Wednesday night along with his wife, actress Gabrielle Union:

The baby was born via surrogate after Union shared her struggle with infertility last year

Wade and Union have been married since 2014 and are already raising three children—two of Wade's sons from a previous marriage, along with Wade's nephew.

The 36-year-old NBA star returned to the Heat after contemplating retirement this offseason but noted this will be his last season in the league. It will be his 16th campaign, which included 12 All-Star selections and three titles.

He missed Wednesday's game against the San Antonio Spurs due to "personal reasons," which are now clear.
