By Vasantha

The name and gender of Dwyane Wade's 15-year-old daughter have been legally changed

according to court documents obtained by Insider.

A Los Angeles County judge approved the change on Friday. She is now legally known as Zaya Malachi Airamis Wade

More than two years after her father filed the petition on her behalf, Zaya came out as transgender.

 Future official documents will reflect Zaya's legal status as a female based on her gender identity

 according to the judge.

We did not receive a response from Wade's representatives immediately.
