Meet #BBW Newcomer Aja Metoyer a.k.a. Dwyane Wade’s “On Break Baby Mama” [VIDEO]
There are a couple of new faces on "Basketball Wives" this season, which includes Aja Metoyer, the mother of Dwayne Wade's "break baby."

A new promo of the show includes an introduction to Aja, where she talks about why she decided to share her story on reality television. She states in the clip that most people would say she has a big heart, but she also has quite the temper. The mom-of-three says family is very important to her and she is working 24/7 to provide for her children. "Ultimately, family is all you have. If everything went to [expletive]and it was the end of the world all you’re going to have is your kids," she explained.

Metoyer joins the cast of "Basketball Wives" with both of her sisters, Melissa and Cristen. Aja claims that she didn't know her "family members were going to act crazy."

The show will premiere on Monday, April 17 at 9/8 Central. 

Metoyer also has two children with Damon Wayans Jr., the son of comedy legend Damon Wayans and star of the sitcom "Happy Endings." Wayans and Metoyer were reportedly high school sweethearts. 

Aja made headlines when the news of her pregnancy came out. Metoyer and NBA star Dwyane Wade hooked up during his break with actress Gabrielle Union and Aja fell pregnant. Of course, rumors of Wade cheating on Union became the topic of conversation on celebrity gossip websites. Metoyer has a son named Xavier with Wade, who was born in November of 2013. 

Metoyer gave birth to Xavier on November 10, 2013. She is the only one listed on the birth certificate. In September, in an appearance on Jay Leno, Wade said that he and Gabrielle Union had been on a break earlier in the year but were together during the summer of 2013.
Wade has reportedly "liked" some Instagram photos of his son although he doesn't discuss the subject of the "break baby" often. We can imagine that is a rather sore spot for his now-wife, "Being Mary Jane" actress Gabrielle Union. 

The NBA star did comment on the birth of his son, Xavier, in a press conference in 2013. Wade stated, "I had a time, a part in our break, in our pain and our hurt, a blessing came out of it in my life, having a son that was born healthy. So I’m moving on. I’ve always tried to show my importance in my kids’ lives and it doesn’t change now. So, I, my lady and my family have continued to move forward, and I think that’s evident with the ring and the proposal that I gave her, with our lives."

It was revealed back in December that not only Aja would appear on "Basketball Wives", but also Nick Young's baby mama, Keonna Green.
