Dwyane & Gabrielle --

Evidence They Were NOT on Break

When Baby Was Conceived

12/31/2013 12:04 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Exactly 9 months before Dwyane Wade's son was born (by a woman who's NOT his fiancee) ... Wade and Gabrielle Union were still acting like they were very much a couple ... and TMZ has the proof.

We broke the story ... Wade's baby mama Aja Metoyer gave birth to Dwyane's son Xavier on Nov. 10. Wade claims the two were on a "break" at the time.

But on February 5th (9 months before the birth), Gabrielle was Instagramming about Wade ... posting a photo of the NBA star cuddled up with her dog Sasha along with caption, "Sasha don't play when it comes to her man... 'Down to ride 'til the very end, it's me and my boyfriend.'"

d-wade-feb5-instagramA couple of days before that (on Feb. 1), Gabrielle posted a romantic photo of the couple together from a photo shoot for a "Flashback Friday."

Doesn't seem like a couple on a break ...

There's more ... on February 19th, Gabby posted another pic of Dwyane holding one of her scripts ... with the caption, "It takes a village to help an actress learn her lines... @dwyanewade takin a break from his Gatorade commercial to give me a line reading. Thanks coach :)"

d-wade-feb19-instagramThe patter continues until April ... when Gabby stopped posting pics of Dwyane and started posting a bunch of sad cryptic quotes. One reads, "We cannot start over, but we can begin now, and make a new ending."

d-wade-apr26-instagramAnother says, "Sometimes you have to get knocked down lower than you have ever been, to stand up taller than you ever were."

But on May 16, Wade returns to the picture ... with Union posting a photo of the couple, along with the caption, "I like this dude."

d-wade-may16-instagramOne would assume it was right around this time that Union decided to take him back.

If men were the ones getting pregnant....there would be over 50 billion people on this planet or an abortion clinic on every street

Shocking. Another high ranking NBA player has another kid. Union is only in on the marriage for the money. Dwayne only has another two years to play so I hope his illegitimate kids get more money then Derrick Thomas kids got.

I'm so sick of black people and their sex lives.

They're all wrong. An average month has 4.3 weeks. 40 weeks=9.3 months :-)

Which would be evidence if the human gestation period was exactly 9 months. Perhaps a little research might do you guys some good.

Just leave them alone, TMZ. These are two accomplished adults. Gabby is a wonderful actress and Dwyane is an excellent and future Hall Of Fame basketball player. Gabby is not some love struck groupie looking for a payday. She seems to really love Dwyane and his kids, and he seems to really love her. They are both human and neither is perfect. TMZ needs to stop acting like a meddling mother-in-law trying to cause more problems and embarrassment for this couple. Go back to defending dead pedophile Michael Jackson and living psycho s***bag Charlie Sheen.

Sorry girl this wont be the last time. How many baby mama's will he have before you see him for what he is or what STD's he brings home from the road. So unfair the these children he makes and walks away only to send a monthly check. he's dirty dog.

Isn't it THEIR business? If they were on a break or not she is obviously mature enough to except this....would most women? No, but she did let's keep it moving.....

Who cares? It's their business and they can handle it any way they want. We all make mistakes. Luckily - they aren't plastered all over the media every time it happens. I like them both and appreciate that they are adults who are making decisions TOGETHER, for the betterment of their relationship and for the kids. I pray for their success as a couple.
