Gabrielle Union is always outspoken and transparent, but in her new memoir, We’re Going To Need More Wine, the actress opened up in a way her fans never expected.
In an excerpt from the book, exclusively obtained by People, Union revealed that she has suffered several miscarriages after multiples rounds of IVF.
“I have had eight or nine miscarriages,” Union, 44, writes in the book. “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.”
The Being Mary Jane star and NBA baller, Dwyane Wade, have been married since 2014 and for several years Gabby stated she didn’t want kids … that is until she realized what a joy it could be. “I never wanted kids,” she tells PEOPLE. “Then I became a stepmom, and there was no place I’d rather be than with them.”
Although it’s been tough for Union, all hope isn’t lost. She states that she and Wade, “remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we’ve both dreamed of.”
