The actress posted a couple sweet photos with her 18-year-old stepson, writing, “Sending a young Black man across the country alone to school is scary, but I am hopeful @Zaire is one step closer to his dreams.
” Dwyane shared a series of family pics as he reflected on his firstborn’s departure from the nest.
“Man oh man… Dropping your oldest off to school is another set of emotions that I didn’t know existed,” he wrote. “I’m a proud father!”

Man oh Man 😭 😭 😭 Dropping your oldest off to school is another set of emotions that I didn’t know existed. I’m a proud father! My goal as a parent is to raise kids who know their worth and that are better than I could ever be. From watching Zaire build a company with his friends the last two years, To watching him handle the hate that has been thrown at his sister zaya and showing grown ass men how to love unconditionally at 18 years old, To seeing how he’s been able to handle not seeing his parents interact or be in the same room together for most of his life and the list goes on and on. He’s already way ahead of me at 18. He’s already built different. I’m excited for him to go on this journey of life as he becomes Zaire Wade! Good Luck at Brewster Academy YnG 🧬🖤🖤🖤
