Actress, Gabrielle Union and Miami Heat NBA star Dwyane Wade have welcomed their first child a baby girl, via surrogate.
This is Gabrielle’s first child and Dwyane’s fourth. Their sweet little girl will join half-brothers Zaire, Xavier and Zion, two of which Dwyane shares with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches.
The Union made the announcement by sharing a candid picture of the duo holding the newborn at the hospital. Alongside the photo.
She wrote, “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!”
She continued: “Welcome to the party sweet girl,” including lyrics from Bill Withers’ “Lovely Day” to signify her daughter’s birthday.
The news comes after the pair struggled to conceive for many years. Last year, Union revealed in her book that she suffered over eight miscarriages in recent years as she and Dwyane attempted to welcome a child with the help of IVF.
The couple married in August 2014 in front of friends and family, including the likes of Kevin Hart, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, John Legend, Ludacris and La La Anthony.
