Gabrielle Union seems to be the girl who has everything. She’s got a successful career, she’s got a wealthy, handsome husband, three bonus children and a great Instagram presence. But one thing she doesn’t have is a baby of her own.

In her book We’re Going To Need More Wine, Union revealed that her attempts to get pregnant led to multiple miscarriages. Rounds of IVF didn’t work and finally, she was diagnosed with adenomyosis, a situation akin to endometriosis where the uterine lining grows into the uterine wall, making pregnancy difficult.


On the Dr. Oz show, Union, often seeming close to tears, said that she wanted to go public with her pregnancy challenges so other women didn’t feel ashamed or defeated by infertility issues.

Watch the interview below:

Union will star as an L.A. police officer on the show LA’s Finest, which will have a 13 episode run on a Charter Communications channel.

  1. Thanks Gabby for sharing. I see you in a totally different light and I respect you so much for what you’ve been struggling with.
    May God bless you as only he can….pray and keep the faith!

    Use a surrogate girl b/c many others have and at your income level status its definitely affordable. Remember the child will still be yours, but you don’t carry it.

  3. I’m proud of her for speaking out. She went through 8 miscarriages, I couldn’t do that. I went through 2, 5 years apart and that was painful enough. But she can have a little bit of hope when females like Halle Berry, 50, and Brigette Nelson, 55, and many more defy the odds. I wish her luck.

    A woman’s fertility starts to decline in her early 30s, with the decline speeding up after 35. At 40 a woman only has a 5% chance of becoming pregnant in any month. Gabby is what – 45? Then with her diagnosis, it is even more difficult. Got to start putting it in the oven early. Through God’s grace it can happen. I know she loves her husband’s boys, but there is nothing like being a biological parent. Best of luck.
