Dwyane Wade celebrated his 39th in his birthday suit, and his kids are not happy there's photo evidence.

The former NBA player posted a photo on his Instagram, posing with no clothes on while his wife Gabrielle Union, 48, stands in front of him in a white robe.

"Birthday behavior‼️39 is already looking up 👀 🖤🖤🖤👑3️⃣" he captioned the photo.

The post gained the attention of three of his four children, who commented to express their displeasure with the photo.

"This isn't what i wanted to wake up to," Dwyane's 18-year-old son Zaire wrote, adding a sick face emoji.

Wade's youngest daughter Kaavia, 2, also has an Instagram account set up for her, and someone made sure to leave a comment from her on her dad's post.

"Thought I had more time before his midlife crisis," the comment reads.

On Sunday, before the sports star's nude photo, his family shared sweet posts about Wade to honor him for his birthday.

"Happy Birthday baby 🖤," Union wrote. "You make every day beautiful and fun and the way you protect our peace makes me swoon. I love loving you. 39 🔥🔥🖤🖤😜😜."

Zaire shared his own tribute to his dad on Instagram with a sweet father-son throwback photo. "3️⃣9️⃣🤞🏾 Love you deeper than the surface 🖤," he captioned the post.

Wade — who is also the guardian of nephew Dahveon Morris, 18 —  married Union on August 30, 2014, in Miami, Florida, and the actress became a stepmother to his children. In 2018, the couple welcomed their first child, daughter Kaavia James, via surrogacy.

Wade opened up about fatherhood to PEOPLE last February ahead of the premiere of his documentary D. Wade: Life Unexpected, discussing how his perspective of parenthood has changed since he welcomed his first child, Zaire.

"You're afraid because you don't want to mess up; you don't want anything to happen to them," he continues. "But I think, ultimately, we all have it inside of us to help lead someone, whether that's your kids, godson or goddaughter, niece or nephew, coworker — we all have it in us to lead. It's no different when you have a kid."
