Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade welcome 'miracle' baby girl

BABY JOY: Gabrielle Union has said she was 'so excited' to share the news

ACTRESS GABRIELLE Union and her husband, basketball player Dwyane Wade, have welcomed their first child together, a baby girl.

The couple announced the news of the arrival of their newborn baby, who was born via surrogate, on social media.

Union shared photos of herself, Wade and their newborn daughter on Instagram.

She wrote: “We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that our miracle baby arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days. Welcome to the party sweet girl!”

Wade, who has two children from a previous partner, shared his delight at the new addition through a joint statement with his wife.

Fans were shocked at the news as neither Union nor Wade had shared publicly that they were planning to expand their family.

The pair, who parent three children already, Wade’s two sons and his nephew, have not disclosed the name of their daughter as of yet.

Union has previously spoken out about her fertility issues.

In her book, We’re Going to Need More Wine, she revealed that she had suffered multiple miscarriages.

She wrote: “I have had eight or nine miscarriages.

“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.”

Union, told People magazine that she had never wanted kids until she became a stepmum.

“I never wanted kids,” she told the magazine. “Then I became a stepmom, and there was no place I’d rather be than with them.”
