Almost three years after welcoming Kaavia, Gabrielle Union is opening up about her surrogacy experience. The 48-year-old is writing a book on the subject, You Got Anything Stronger?
In an excerpt, she revealed that she desperately wanted to carry Kaavia herself. She wrote: “I was not ready for a gestational carrier after suffering multiple miscarriages. I wanted the experience of being pregnant. To watch my body expand and shift to accommodate this miracle inside me.”
She wrote that she was prepared to take Lupron, which can cause “early menopause and lead users to break bones very easily,” but that her husband Dwayne Wade intervened.
