Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union are loving life after welcoming their first child together via surrogate last week (Nov. 7). The happy couple shared the wonderful news on Instagram, with Union writing, "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!"
Union has been open about her struggles with infertility in the past, revealing she's suffered 9 miscarriages. "For so many women, and not just women in the spotlight, people feel very entitled to know, [they ask] ‘Do you want kids?’ A lot of people, especially people that have fertility issues, just say ‘no’ because that’s a lot easier than being honest about whatever is actually going on," she said. "People mean so well, but they have no idea the harm or frustration it can cause."
Now, though, Union and Wade have welcomed their daughter and can't help but show her off on social media. Both Union and Wade shared new photos of daddy and daughter on Instagram over the weekend and they're so, so cute.
"Thanks for letting daddy watch some football...We’re already working together well," Wade captioned a sweet shot of himself cradling his little girl.
Union shared another adorable daddy-daughter photo, telling the world her daughter is already a "daddy's girl."
Wade will be taking at least another week off from the Miami Heat to be with his wife and daughter. "With my daughter coming a couple weeks early, she's a little tiny right now, so we're making sure health-wise that she's OK,'' Wade told The Associated Press. "And for me, once I leave and go back to the season, not really being able to be with me everywhere I go, this time right now, this bonding moment with my daughter, is the most important thing in my life at this time.''
Wade and Union are also parents to Wade's two sons from a previous relationship, as well as his adopted nephew. Congratulations to the happy family!
