Dwyane Wade’s 15-year-old daughter has legally changed her name and gender, according to court documents obtained by Insider.
A Los Angeles County judge granted the change on Friday. Her legal name is now Zaya Malachi Airamis Wade. The former NBA superstar filed the petition on his daughter’s behalf in August 2022, more than two years after Zaya came out as transgender. The judge also ruled that Zaya is legally recognized as a female, which future official documents will reflect to match her gender identity.
