Gabrielle Union is a stepmother of three boys, which means she doesn’t always rest easy.

The Being Mary Jane actress covers ESSENCE magazine’s November issue and opens up about raising growing Black boys. “Until they walk through the door, I’m terrified,” she tells the publication.

Union, who stars in Nate Parker’s latest film, The Birth of a Nation, adds, “Sometimes I just want to stay off my timeline, because it makes those wait until they walk through the door a thousand times worse. One of my biggest fears is them being a hashtag on some bullsh*t.”

Aside from being a worrying mother, wifey to NBA champion Dwyane Wade, and a brilliant actress, the beauty is also shifting her focus to producing. “I’m at an age where my ego doesn’t live and die by how many lines I have,” she tells the publication.

The 43-year-old, who will serve as a producer on Season 4 of Being Mary Jane, explains,  “I don’t just want to be a hired gun. I want to have a little bit more control over the narrative. The only way I can be empowered to do that is to be a producer. Now with as many projects that will have me, it’s part of the deal.”

The Nebraska native covers the front page of the mag in a stunning rain coat that is simply too sexy for even her own husband to handle.
