Gabrielle Union Describes How It Felt Knowing She And Dwyane Wade Would Finally Have A Baby

Gabrielle Union has been very open about her struggles with fertility. In her memoir,  “We’re Going to Need More Wine,” she revealed that she and her husband suffered multiple miscarriages and for three years, tried to get pregnant via in vitro fertilization to no avail.

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.

Earlier this year, Gabrielle revealed that she was diagnosed with adenomyosis, a condition in which the inner lining of the uterus grows into the uterus muscle, damaging the uterine wall. It can cause painful and heavy periods and is something she’s been dealing with undiagnosed since her 20’s.

However, with the help of a surrogate, Gabrielle and Dwyane Wade finally got their miracle baby, Kaavia. In a recent post on Instagram, she shared how it felt to finally be welcoming a child after years of trying unsuccessfully.

On this night we decided to embrace faith that our lil miracle @kaaviajames would make it into our arms. We held onto each other in joy and peace and allowed ourselves to look forward to her arrival. @dwyanewade marked this moment with his 1st ever tattoo of her 1st name Kaavia James… Yes it took alot of whiskey and he and @ud40 & @3jmccollum smoked a few cigars with the @lining.official @wayofwade family and we celebrated. For lots of people/families who have been on their own unique fertility/family creation journey, hope can feel like a cruel joke that plays on repeat. You stop letting yourself get excited and you don’t dare utter any updates. You carry it all. It can feel isolating and depressing. You wonder if you are defective. You are not. You wonder if you are worthy. You are. You feel you feel you feeeeeel. You are not alone. You are loved and worthy and every feeling is real and understood. On this night, we allowed ourselves to stop holding our breath out of fear. We still had 4 months to go. We had never been this close. #tbt

You can’t help but be happy for Gab and DWade.
