What’s not to love about Gabrielle Union? Even her name is beautiful. Though we’ve only experienced her on screen, there is something beautifully genuine about her that we can’t put our finger on. She recently told people about her struggles as a woman, a heartbreaking battle millions of women know all too well which she revealed has led her to suffer tremendous loss.
“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.”
The 44 year old has been married to NBA player Dwyane Wade since 2014 and is a stepmother to his three sons from previous relationships.
“I never wanted kids,” she told People. “Then I became a stepmom, and there was no place I’d rather be than with them.”
“Once a month I look like I’m in my second trimester because I’m bloated,” she says. “It leads to the questions and it leads to the rumors and anytime I go into a doctor’s office I feel like I’m a member of SEAL Team Six undercover because I don’t want people to speculate.” – Gabrielle as told to People.
