Actress Gabrielle Union Shares Her Heartbreaking Infertility Struggles And Says She Has Had 8/9 Miscarriages

Gabrielle Union has revealed she’s suffered multiple miscarriages in an attempt to have a much-longed-for baby with NBA star husband Dwyane Wade.





The star opens up about her struggles with infertility and failed IVF treatments.

She said “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.”


While Union has spoken about IVF previously, she did not reveal the heartbreaking struggle she has faced.

But even after enduring three years of failed IVF cycles and being constantly bloated from the hormones, Union writes that she and Wade “remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we’ve both dreamed of.”

The pair tied the knot in August 2014 and at first, the star didn’t see children as part of her future.

But, after realizing how much joy she felt raising three boys with Wade, 35 his nephew Dahveon Morris, 16, and sons from a previous marriage Zaire, 15, and Zion, 10 (Wade’s third son Xavier, 3, conceived with another woman while Wade and Union were broken up, lives with his mother), Union first discovered that having a baby was something she wanted.

“I never wanted kids,” she tells PEOPLE. “Then I became a stepmom, and there was no place I’d rather be than with them.”

Dealing with infertility while being in the public eye hasn’t been easy for Union, who constantly is reminded of her struggle each time she’s asked by both family and strangers alike when she’s having kids.


“For so many women, and not just women in the spotlight, people feel very entitled to know, ‘Do you want kids?'” she says. “A lot of people, especially people that have fertility issues, just say ‘no’ because that’s a lot easier than being honest about whatever is actually going on. People mean so well, but they have no idea the harm or frustration it can cause.”


“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.”

By sharing her story in 'We’re Going to Need More Wine' Union hopes that the way people approach her about the topic changes.

The annoying thing is how Dwanye went on to have a 'break' baby...
See what she has been through๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ
Until people tell you their struggles, you might never know how they hurt especially in the virtual world.
A little kindness won't hurt. Even with these revelations,some unfortunate people still went to cuss her out. Psychos.
All the best to every woman TTC, it is indeed not easy.

People can be so insensitive. They will see a couple living together and ve been married from 2yrs upwards and they will still be asking stupid qstns like "what re you guys waiting for? Na your own we dey wait for, don't you guys want kids?" And so on. Like it is not obvious that children aren't forthcoming yet....couples should be left alone. It is bad enough that they are struggling with infertility issues. They shouldn't be constantly reminded about it. ๐Ÿ˜’๐Ÿ˜’

This babe no dey old o. You will carry your baby in Jesus name.

8-9 times isn't a coincidence. She has the means and option to hire a surrogate, I hope she has her own kids. It's heartbreaking to go through that much miscarriages and still get cheated on with a fertile chic.

As a woman waiting on God for the fruit of the womb, I do feel for her. But let's be clear you cannot ruin another's woman's marriage and expect an happily ever after. True love is not based on hurt anyone else. Gabriel stole Dwayne from his ex wife. This was a woman that Dwade live with in her parent house when he was a nobody. They cloth him and feed and took care of him. He became a NBA superstar and left the wife that took care of him when he was a nobody for a famous actress Gabriel Union. Not only that her kids was taking away from her. Dwade broke his ex wife by taking away her 2 boys from her in court. I remember vividly her picture sitting on the floor and holding a placard. People questioned her sanity after Dwade Brooke her by leaving her for a more attractive and famous Gabriel Union. And nerve to steal someone's husband and try raise her kids. God cannot be mocked.

I pray God grants her heart desires.

My dear anonymous 14:17! You spoke my mind. She needs to ask the first wife for forgiveness and openly too. After Dwayne broke off with the first wife in a bitter divorce , he took sole custody of the children and cut off the ex wife and mom financially he even took away the health insurance he used to provide for them. Haba! He was ruthless!!!! I cried when I watched that documentary
