Gabrielle Union Reveals Infertility Struggles, Says She’s Suffered ‘Eight or Nine Miscarriages
Gabrielle Union has revealed she has suffered multiple miscarriages in attempted to have a much-longed-for baby with NBA star husband Dwyane Wade.
In her new book, We’re Going to Need More Wine — excerpted exclusively in the new issue of PEOPLE — the star of BET’s Being Mary Jane opens up about her struggles with infertility and failed IVF treatments.
She wrote: ‘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.’
Following three years of failed IVF cycles, Gabrielle confessed that although she is left ‘bloated’ from the hormones, she and Dwyane ‘remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we’ve both dreamed of.’
The US star first started dating basketball player Dwyane in 2009 and tied the knot in August 2014 following a brief break in 2013 due to work commitments.
During their brief break, Dwyane fathered a child with another woman. He also has two children from his first marriage.
