"She makes my eyes sparkle," Wade told Oprah Winfrey on Oprah's Next Chapter last summer. "The biggest time she makes my eyes sparkle is when Zaire (his 11-year-old son from a previous marriage) comes home and homework is a little hard that day, so he's stressing, and she goes to the table with him and she sits down until he gets it."

He added: "And at that time my heart is smiling a little bigger that day because I know her love is deeper than just me."
