A great event in Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade family – they have a daughter.
On Wednesday, November 7, 46-year-old Gabrielle Union, a popular American film and television actress, a model known or her roles in such popular films as Something the Lord Made (two-time Golden Globe winner), Cadillac Records, Love & Basketball and Bad Boys, and 36-year-old Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat shooting guard, became parents.
The actress herself told this great news on her Instagram and shared a series of touching pictures.
She wrote: We are sleepless and delirious but so excited.
Gabrielle also wrote: 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days. Welcome to the party sweet girl!
The couple has not yet made the name of their daughter public.
For Union, who married Wade in August 2014, this child is the first. But Miami Heat basketball player has two sons from his previous marriage and also a son from his ex-girlfriend.
Gabrielle Union, by the way, always wanted to have children, but, unfortunately, she could not give birth to herself - she experienced several miscarriages. Union opened up about her struggles with infertility in her book We're Going to Need More Wine.
I never wanted kids, - Union told People last year. - Then I became a stepmom, and there was no place I'd rather be than with them.
Gabrielle is not only an actress, model and TV host, she also joins the ranks of activists of the movement to support victims of sexual violence. In 1992, Gabrielle Union was attacked by a criminal. The girl was brutally beaten and raped. The attacker was later detained by the police, and he was sentenced to 33 years in prison.
When she was 29, she married Chris Howard. But their marriage did not work out, and after 5 years the couple officially broke up.
Gabrielle considers her meeting with Dwyane Wade a gift of fate. Being in love with him, she really understood what it means to be happy.
