Dwyane Wade's Heartwarming Message For His 18-Year-Old Son, Zaire, May Make You Tear Up

Zaire Wade is officially off to boarding school for the year! Recently, Dwyane Wade shared a series of photos and a heartfelt message on Instagram in honor of his oldest son, Zaire, who transferred to Brewster Academy in New Hampshire.

"Man oh Man 😭 😭 😭 Dropping your oldest off to school is another set of emotions that I didn't know existed. I'm a proud father!" he wrote. "My goal as a parent is to raise kids who know their worth and that are better than I could ever be."

Dwyane described some of his son's incredible accomplishments as well as the level of maturity he's fostered over the last few years. "From watching Zaire build a company with his friends the last two years, To watching him handle the hate that has been thrown at his sister Zaya and showing grown ass men how to love unconditionally at 18 years old," he said. "To seeing how he's been able to handle not seeing his parents interact or be in the same room together for most of his life and the list goes on and on."

The proud dad wrapped up his post by giving Zaire one heck of a compliment: "He's already way ahead of me at 18. He's already built different. I'm excited for him to go on this journey of life as he becomes Zaire Wade! Good Luck at Brewster Academy."
