The 15-year-old daughter of Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union made her runway debut on Tuesday during Paris Fashion Week by strolling down the runway at Miu Miu’s fall/winter 2023 show.
In addition to carrying a brown leather bag and wearing matching patent slingback heels, Zaya sported an oversized olive green knit blazer that she paired with a matching sweater and pencil skirt.
Wade and Gabrielle Union were in the front row to witness everything along with the family’s stylist, Thomas Christos Kikis, and in a video shared on Instagram by him, Wade appears to have just won another Nba championship, according to TMZ.
Wade said, “I’m not crying, you’re crying,” while expressing his “proudness” on his social media page. He was spotted beaming the entire time he observed Zaya. Then, he gave her a warm hug and encouraging words.

Wade also shared a photo of the family at the event on his Twitter feed, stating in the caption, “Just an icon living. Zaya’s @MIUMIUofficial debut.”
Kikis also uploaded an Instagram post about Zaya, noting that he had “tears in my eyes.” He thanked Zaya for “showing me what it means to believe in oneself” and the former Heat player for his “endless trust” in his vision.
Wade shares Zaya with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches. The former couple has been involved in a legal dispute involving the teen. Zaya, who came out as trans in 2020, was just given a legal name change and gender reassignment last month.
While Wade wants Zaya to “live more comfortably and honestly in all aspects of her life,” his ex accuses him of “pressuring” their child to “move forward” with a name change and gender change “in order to capitalize on financial opportunities.”
