Dwyane Wade is honoring his daughter Zaya.

The 38-year-old shared a pair of photos featuring his 13-year-old and posted a beautiful quote about unconditional love. Back in February, Wade and wife Gabrielle Union supported Zaya during her journey of coming out as transgender.

"Unconditional love, simply put, is love without strings attached. It's love you offer freely," reads the quote shared by Wade. "You don't base it on what someone does for you in return. You simply love them and want nothing more than their happiness. This type of love, sometimes called compassionate or agape love 🖤🖤🖤 @zayawade."

Wade’s blended family includes his 2-year-old daughter Kaavia James with Union and also sons Xavier Zechariah, 7, and Zaire, 18.

"As I'm raising [Zaya], as I'm raising my kids, you just try to put them in the best situations to be able to succeed in life," Dywane told PEOPLE in February. "How I do that, and how me and my wife decide to do that, may be different than another family, but we want them to know there's always unconditional love, that it will always be support."

"We've got you, no matter what. And we see you," he added. "I see you how you see you."
