Surprise! Gabrielle Union announced on Instagram that she and husband Dwyane Wade have welcomed their first daughter via surrogate. Union had previously opened up about her fertility issues in her memoir We’re Going to Need More Wine, revealing that she has had "eight or nine miscarriages." However, the actress had never spoken about surrogacy until her daughter's birth announcement Thursday afternoon.
"A LOVELY DAY 👶🏾👶🏾👶🏾" she captioned a series of photos of she and her husband experiencing skin-to-skin contact with their new baby (an important step following a surrogate delivery). "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. Welcome to the party sweet girl!"
