  • Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade announced the birth of their first child via surrogate on Thursday.
  • Union had previously discussed her struggles with infertility, but the couple had not disclosed that they were expecting a baby.
  • “We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that our miracle baby arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days,” Union wrote on Twitter.

On Thursday, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade announced the birth of their first child after enlisting the help of a surrogate.

“We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that our miracle baby arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days,” both Union and Wade shared on Twitter, along with multiple photos from the hospital. “Welcome to the party sweet girl!”

Union revealed last year in her memoir, “We’re Going to Need More Wine,” that the couple’s journey towards parenthood has been fraught with pain and complications.

I have had eight or nine miscarriages,” Union wrote. “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.”

More recently, Union revealed that she has adenomyosis, which can cause an enlarged uterus, and heavy, painful periods. While many, including Union, had been quick to blame her age or career, Union said, she “finally got some answers” with the diagnosis.

“Everyone said, ‘You’re a career woman, you’ve prioritized your career, you waited too long and now you’re just too old to have a kid — and that’s on you for wanting a career,'” Union said while speaking at the BlogHer conference on August 8.
