Gabrielle Union on nine miscarriages “I NEVER gave up on motherhood dreams”

"If you think I waited this long and went thru all this to put my baby in harm's way... you got another thing coming", she concluded.

After the 46-year-old and her husband, National Basketball Association star Dwyane Wade, surprised fans on social media with the arrival of their daughter Kaavia James via surrogate on November 7, they were sadly met with backlash over the photos they used celebrate their little girl. Why's she got a gown on?

Her fans had questioned whether the kiss was safe for the baby, who might catch a virus from her mother.

Referring to the Instagram photos that the couple posted when their baby Kaavia James was born, the National Basketball Association star recalled, "I think for me the most hurtful thing was once we had our baby everyone started [asking] 'Why is she in the bed holding the baby? Kaav is healthy and I don't even touch her without washing and sanitizing myself and everything and everyone that comes into contact with her".

Speaking in an interview with Oprah Winfrey for a special titled, "Oprah at Home with Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade and Their New Baby", airing this weekend on OWN, the couple spoke about struggling with fertility, their decision to use a surrogate, and Wade taking paternity leave from the National Basketball Association.

She explained: 'No visits with sick folk and even all of Oprah's crew got whooping cough vaccinations and current on all vaccinations to be in our home. I saw motherhood and parenthood with very realistic eyes. "Why is she acting like she just had a baby?'" the National Basketball Association player said.

The actress has previously spoken about her infertility in her 2017 memoir, We're Going to Need More Wine, even sharing that fact that she suffered "eight or nine miscarriages".

'I could not let go of this idea of creating life within me, that I could feel, that tied me to him, that he could be a part of, that the world could be a part of.

But while Gabrielle was unwavering over the course of years of losses, Dwyane wasn't just suffering those miscarriages.

'There came a part where I started to feel a certain way about [the miscarriages], because I didn't want something to happen to her, and it was getting risky, ' he said. 'We had been trying so much. and I was getting nervous'.

"I've just always been of the mindset because people tell you, 'You work hard, you do the right things, you're a good person, it will happen for you, eventually, '" she said.
