In an exclusive interview with People Magazine, Union revealed,”I never wanted kids. Then I became a stepmom, and there was no place I’d rather be than with them.”

The 44-year-old shares in her book “I have had eight or nine miscarriages,” she continues “In order to tell you the exact number, I would have to get my medical records. (I am also not sure what the number is where you start to think I must be nuts for trying.)”

“For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant — either about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle. I have endured eight failed IVF cycles … For as long as I can remember now, Dwayne and I have lived in a  state of extended expectation.”

This is not the first time Gabrielle has spoken publicly about her fertility issues. In 2015, after celebrating a year of being married to Dwyane Wade, she hinted at struggling with fertility.

We can’t wait to read her book!
