  • Actress Gabrielle Union has revealed that she has welcomed a baby girl with her husband Dwyane Wade via a surrogate after suffering ‘eight or nine’ miscarriages

    Gabrielle Union has announced her baby joy with husband and NBA star Dwyane Wade after enduring several miscarriages.

    She’s starred in films such as She’s All That, 10 Things I Hate About You and more recently Breaking In but last year Gabrielle opened up about her struggle to conceive and the devastating reality of having at least eight miscarriages.

    In her memoir, titled We’re Going to Need More Wine, Gabrielle wrote: ‘I have had eight or nine miscarriages. For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant — I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle.’

    Dwyane already has three children from previous relationships, but Gabrielle has helped him raise the three boys who are now 16, 11, and four.

    As parents who are raising black boys in Florida, a "Stand Your Ground" and "Open Carry" state, @dwyanewade and I know firsthand the fear, anxiety and frustration that goes hand in hand when so many demonize, weaponize and criminalize black and brown bodies. This wedding pic is right when the boys were preteens, and the reactions to them started to change from "oh how cute” to “clutch the pearls.” #AmericanSon effectively and beautifully details this experience and we are proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with such a dynamic group of creatives, producers and investors to bring this powerful play to life. We are humbled. We are honored. We are ready. Thank you @kerrywashington for bringing us on board for this incredible journey. @americansonplay

    Quoting the song Lovely Day by Bill Withers Gabrielle finished her post gushing: ‘A LOVELY DAY 👶🏾👶🏾👶🏾 We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that our miracle baby arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days. Welcome to the party sweet girl! #onelastdance #skintoskin @dwyanewade ❤👑🥂 📸 by @awesomeedd’.
