Dwayne Wade admits he fathered a 'son' during break with Gabrielle Union

Yesterday news broke that Miami Heat point guard Dwayne Wade got a well-known Miami groupie pregnant while he and fiancee Gabrielle Union were on a 'break' early this year. The reports are true. The basketball player says he has nothing to hide and admits his new son was conceived during the few weeks he and girlfriend of 4 years actress Gabrielle Union were on a break. He said his son was born in late November.

Dwayne yesterday addressed the report during a press conference before the Heat game where he was asked about his new baby. He said:
“I’m in the public eye, so obviously that’s a part of it. But, it’s kind of … as I’ve always done my whole life, is always focus on what’s most important to me and my family, and that’s being a great father. I’ve always tried to show my importance in my kids’ lives and it doesn’t change now. But, yeah, I had a time, in our pain and our hurt, (but) a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son that was born healthy. So, I’m moving on.”
He said he and Gabby worked through the issue privately as a couple and that she was aware of the child before their engagement in December. Dwayne also has two sons with his ex-wife.

Hmmmm.. this doesn't sound right to me. They were on a short 'break' and he went and got another woman pregnant? How many of you females would have accepted his ring? Would you stay with a man who had a child with another woman during your relationship? Let's discuss this...

F1 legend Michael Schumacher fighting for his life following horrific skiing accident

Retired Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher, 44, is fighting for his life after he fell and hit his head on a rock while skiing off piste with his 14-year-old son Mick in the resort of Meribel in the French Alps yesterday morning Sunday December 29th.

Doctors who treated the seven-time Formula One world champion said he would ‘have died’ had he not been wearing a crash helmet. But despite the helmet, Michael Schumacher suffered serious head injuries that has left him in a coma since the accident. The German driver required immediate brain surgery as he got to the hospital and is currently being kept in an induced coma, officials said.

Speaking at a press conference at the Grenoble Hospital where he's being treated, Doctors said they can't predict the future for Michael Schumacher.
"Michael Schumacher was the victim of very serious trauma. He was very agitated when he arrived and we decided he was in a critical situation and he quickly went into a coma. The neurosurgical treatment he received brought us quite a lot of information. We had to operate urgently to release some pressure in his head. Unfortunately, he has some lesions within his brain. We judge him to be in a very serious situation. We cannot predict the future for Michael Schumacher." Continue...
