Former NBA star Dwyane Wade's transgender daughter Zaya Wade delighted many of her fans with recent pictures she shared on her Instagram page showing off her long red braids and stylish outfit.


On Tuesday, Dwyane Wade's transgender daughter, Zaya Wade, made the world sit back and adore her after she shared stunning photos of herself on Instagram.

The 12-year-old posted four pictures flaunting her long red braids in a beautiful outfit. Zaya wore a green suit jacket, which she matched with green shorts. She wore the jacket over a purple sweater vest and a white buttoned shirt.

In the first picture, Zaya posed on a pathway, clad in her outfit which she accessorized with big glasses. She looked solemn as she posed for the camera.

She added more swagger to her pose in the second snap which showed her full length, revealing the yellow socks and black shoes she wore. She posed with her hands in her pockets, flaunting her legs and braids.


The third photo showed Zaya as she leaped into the air, spreading her hands slightly away from her body as she did. In the last snapshot, she leaned on a wooden fence, flinging her red braids in the air.

In the post's caption, the beautiful Zaya wrote, "So hot, but so worth it ❤????." many of her fans, friends, and family members, including younger sister Kaavia James, commented on the post, showing her love and support.

Wade has credited his daughter with educating his family on what it means to be transgender.


Zaya's post is coming days after former First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, praised her for embracing her truth. Obama's praise came during a virtual chat she had with Zaya following the release of the young reader's edition of her book, "Becoming."

The former FLOTUS said she wants young people to practice embracing the new because she does not want them to feel stuck in their lives, adding that she believes Zaya is the kind of individual who will never feel stuck.


Since Zaya came out as a transgender person, her parents and family have been supportive of her despite the wide-ranging reactions that trailed her coming out.

Wade has credited his daughter with educating his family on what it means to be transgender and revealed that she knew she was transgender since she was 3. He added that he had to do a lot of self-reflecting to understand how best to support her.

The former Miami Heat player and his wife, Gabrielle Union, were with Zaya when she made her red carpet debut after coming out at the Truth Awards in March 2020.


In December 2020, Wade posted beautiful pictures of Zaya on his Instagram and shared a message about unconditional love, describing it as love with no strings attached.

It is such love that has helped the former basketballer and his family wade through the spotlight that shined on them following Zaya's coming out, as they remained steadfast in their support of her. That kind of love is truly commendable.
