NBA veteran Wade and wife welcome baby daughter

  • Wade posted on his Twitter account on Thursday. “Welcome to the party sweet girl.”
  • The baby is Wade’s fourth child and Union’s first

MIAMI: Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and his wife, actress Gabrielle Union, announced the arrival of their daughter Thursday, a day after she was born via a surrogate.
“We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that, our miracle baby, arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days,” Wade posted on his Twitter account on Thursday. “Welcome to the party sweet girl.”
The baby is Wade’s fourth child and Union’s first. The three-time NBA champion had missed the Heat’s victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night for unspecified personal reasons.
His status for Friday’s home game against the Indiana Pacers is unknown.
The 36-year-old is averaging 14.3 points on 45 percent shooting, four rebounds and 2.9 assists in nine games this season, which he has said will be his last.
In September he discussed his decision to return to the Heat in a video, saying family concerns were a big consideration.
At that time he and Union hadn’t revealed publicly that they were expecting their first child together.

Bollywood stars Padukone, Singh wed in Italy

  • The celebrity couple got married in a private ceremony at Lake Como on Wednesday
  • The pair have yet to comment or release pictures from the event which was closed to the media

MUMBAI: Bollywood superstars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh have tied the knot in Italy, Indian media reported Thursday.
The celebrity couple got married in a private ceremony at Lake Como on Wednesday, according to the Press Trust of India news agency.
The pair have yet to comment or release pictures from the event which was closed to the media.
Padukone is arguably Indian cinema’s biggest female star currently, and she has also broken into Hollywood, starring in “xXx: Return of Xander Cage” opposite Vin Diesel.
Padukone, 32, and Singh 33, announced in a joint statement last month that their wedding would take place on November 14 and 15.
The couple reportedly started dating in 2013 but have kept details of their relationship largely out of the public eye.
Hindi film director Karan Johar, a friend of the couple, tweeted his congratulations.
“Such a stunning gorgeous and beautiful couple!!!! Nazar utar lo! (Keep the evil eye away) !! Badhai ho (Congratulations) !!! Love you both!!! Here’s to a lifetime of love and joy!” he wrote on Wednesday.
The newlyweds have shared the silver screen together, including a controversial Bollywood epic earlier this year that sparked violent protests in northern India.
Padukone played a legendary Hindu queen and Singh a medieval Muslim ruler in the flick, which angered hard-liners, some of whom burned down film sets and made threats toward the two stars.
Indian superstar Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas are due to get married in India early next month.
