Gabrielle Union opens up about her heartbreaking battle with infertility

Gabrielle Union opens up about her heartbreaking battle with infertility”

They are clearly a couple to be reckoned with and seemingly continue to push each other in all types of avenues, more recently being the release of Gabrielle's book, We're Going To Need More Wine.

If you recall, last June there was speculation the Being Mary Jane star was expecting and at the time she dismissed the chatter by chalking up the bloat to her period.

Gabrielle Union opened up about her struggles with infertility in her book We're Going to Need More Wine.

And with baby fever on the brain, the actress also reveals that she and husband Dwyane Wade had been trying to add another little one to their family for years now.

Gabrielle says she has gone through three years of failed IVF cycles and is constantly bloated from the hormones.

The Bring It On actress has been married to National Basketball Association player Dwayne Wade since 2014, and has been dating him since 2009 aside from a brief split in 2013.

She wrote: "I have had eight or nine miscarriages". "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", she said.

It was after she walked down the aisle and helped raise Wade's boys - nephew Dahveon Morris, 16, and sons Zaire, 15, Zion, 10 from a previous marriage along with three-year-old Xavier - that she knew she wanted to be a mother.

Union also said that she had not wanted kids until she became a stepmother after marrying Wade, and then it changed her whole perspective: "Then I became a stepmom, and there was no place I'd rather be than with them".

Union's book - which she told People she hopes will change the way people approach her about these personal health topics - is out October 17.

Another put: "I just heard your story in #GMA, and I want you to know you're not alone in your struggle to get pregnant".
