Gabrielle Union says she was 'shattered' when she learned Dwyane Wade fathered a child with another woman



Gabrielle Union has disclosed that her soul was 'shattered' when she learned her husband Dwyane Wade got another woman pregnant while she was going through IVF treatments to try to conceive.



The American actress, 48, made the disclosure in her new book You Got Something Stronger, where she wrote about her infertility struggles.



“The experience of Dwayne having a baby so easily, while I was unable to, left my soul not just broken into pieces but shattered into fine dust scattering in the wind.”



She continued: “To say I was devastated is to pick a word on a low shelf for convenience. There are people – strangers that I will never meet, who have been upset that I have not previously talked about that trauma. I have not had words, and even after untol amounts of therapy I am not sure I have them now.”



The couple began dating in 2008, which at the time, Wade had two children, Zaire, 18, and Zaya, 12, and he was the legal guardian of his nephew, Dehveon, 18.





Father: Wade and Union now have daughter Kaavia, two. They also help raise his nephew Dahvon (center left), as well as his son Zaire (far right) and daughter Zaya (center right) from his first marriage. Xavier is seen under half-brother Zaire.



Although the couple wanted to move forward, Gabrielle Union admits ‘there was no way to disguise’ where the pieces had been ‘glued back together.’ She added,



“So much of what made the decision so difficult was that if I didn’t submit to surrogacy, then I was convienced I needed to let Dwyane go.”Latest Post
