Gabrielle Union is speaking candidly about her struggles with fertility. The Being Mary Jane actress revealed she has suffered multiple miscarriages in attempt to have a baby with NBA star husband Dwyane Wade.

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.
