Gabrielle Union reveals infertility struggle: “I’ve had 8 or 9 miscarriages”

By T. Carter Williamson,

Being Mary Jane star, Gabrielle Union has been showcasing her love and #RelationshipGoals and love all over instagram with hubby NBA star Dwayne Wade, but little did we all know behind the scenes she had been suffered multiple miscarriages in attempted to have a baby.

In her new book We’re Going to Need More Wine Union, who married Wade, now of the Cleveland Cavaliers, in 2014, exclusively told People that she had “never wanted kids. Then I became a stepmom, and there was no place I’d rather be than with them.” Wade, 35, has custody of his two sons with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches — Zion, 10, and Zaire, 15 — and also is raising a nephew, Dahveon Morris, 16. He additionally has a son, Xavier, 3, being raised by a former paramour, Aja Metoyer.

“I have had eight or nine miscarriages,” Union, 44, writes in the book. “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.”
