Dwyane Wade is an example of this. He has never been shy about showing his love for his children, especially Zaya, his transgender daughter, 15 years old. “Unconditional love, simply put, is love without strings attached. It’s love you offer freely,” he wrote in Dec. 2020. “You don’t base it on what someone does for you in return. You love them unconditionally and desire their happiness. This is a type of love [is] sometimes called compassionate or agape love.”
Kate Hudson, a mom of three children aged 18-to-4 years old, often speaks out about the sad reality of Ryder’s childhood. “And then he was 18,” she wrote on his birthday in Jan. 2022. “My heart is filled with love and excitement for your future. Ryder you incredible, unique, hilarious, loving human, I love you beyond.” But in her signature style, Hudson also turned to humor to help her cope: “PS Now your life is your responsibility and outta my hands! Good luck son!!!”
