MIAMI (AP) -Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat and his wife, Siohvaughn, became parents Tuesday for the second time.
The couple's second son, Zion Malachi Airamis Wade, was born at 9:45 p.m. at a Chicago hospital, weighing 6 pounds, 11 ounces. He joins older brother Zaire, 5, in the Wade household.
``We are very excited and blessed to welcome our second child into the world,'' Wade said on his Web site. ``We are really happy and everyone is healthy.''
Wade was the MVP of last season's NBA finals for the Heat, whose title defense ended in the first round of this year's playoffs. The All-Star guard underwent surgeries on his left shoulder and knee earlier this month and will not play with USA Basketball during the FIBA Americas tournament - an Olympic qualifying event - in Las Vegas this summer.
Wade averaged 27.4 points this past season for the Heat despite missing 31 games because of several injuries, primarily a dislocated left shoulder suffered in February.
