Dwyane Wade's transgender daughter Zaya Wade is a special child, and when she turned 14 on May 29, her older brother Zaire ensured she knew just that.
To mark his sister's birthday, Zaire shared an adorable picture that showed them posing at night. In the photo, he wore a black sweatshirt which he paired with yellow pants and sneakers.

Zaire smiled as he put his arm around his beautiful sister who wore a purple sleeveless top and silky green pants. She also wore transparent glasses and rocked curly hair.
The siblings smiled as they posed for the picture. If there was anything sweeter than their appearance, it was Zaire's caption to the post, which read:
"Simply, I love you 💛 Happy 14th @zayawade."
Zaire disabled comments on the post but there is no doubt that many people would have been thrilled with the siblings' picture and would have had nice things to say about it.
This is not the first time Zaire is showing love to his younger sister. After the 14-year-old came out as a transgender person early last year, he posted a heartfelt tribute for her.
Wade revealed Zaya had known she was transgender since she was three years old.
In the post, the 19-year-old publicly declared his support for his sister and shared two adorable throwback snaps of them. He also described her as his best friend and recalled their memorable childhood memories.
Zaire is not the only member of the Wade family to show support to his teenage sister, as every family member has been solidly behind her since her coming out.
While speaking about Zaya's coming out in February last year, Wade revealed Zaya had known she was transgender since she was three years old. He also credited her for educating the family on what being transgender really means.
Before Zaya came out as transgender, Wade and his family had already been behind her. In April 2019, the former NBA star supported Zaya, who was then named Zion, at Miami's Pride Parade joined by his wife, Gabrielle Union.
Besides Zaya and Zaire, Wade also fathers a son, Xavier, who he shares with Aja Metoyer, and a daughter, Kaavia James, with Union. He also raises his sister, Deanna Morris's son, Dahveon, as his own son.
