To kick off the line-up of festivities taking place in Miami Miami Heat All-Star Dwyane Wade’s 30th birthday, his mother Jolinda and sister Tragil held a surprise birthday brunch party for their beloved son and brother. The intimate affair, which was attended by a select group of Wade’s family and friends, was held at the W South Beach Hotel and Residences. The buffet-style brunch included an omelet station, pastas, pastries and a variety of fruit. And in true Roscoe’s tradition, the buffet included chicken and waffles, a dish made famous by the LA-based eatery.
But the celebration wasn’t the only surprise in store for Dwyane. At 91 years old, Dwyane’s grandmother Willie Mae Morris, who has never traveled by plane before, flew to Miami to surprise and celebrate the occasion with her grandson.
Guests enjoyed performances by Yolanda Adams and Eddy Puyol, otherwise known as RAWSRVNT, as well as a dance performance by the Young Contemporary Dance Theater.
“I got in at 6:45 am not knowing what I was [going to do] today, so I was very surprised. Seeing my grandma was the biggest and best surprise, especially since she got on a plane for the first time.” –Dwyane Wade
