Zaya Wade has nothing but love and support from her famous family! Dwyane Wade's oldest son, Zaire, shared a heartfelt message for his sister after the 12-year-old, formerly known as Zion, came out as transgender. The 18-year-old high school senior took to Instagram to post throwback photos of the sibling duo, writing, "Man, I remember bugging my mom as a kid telling her I wanted a brother so bad. I was the only child looking for company and someone to look after and take care of… I've told you that I would lay my life down to make sure you are ten toes down and happy on this earth. I don't care what they think Z, you are my best friend and I love you kid."
