“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,” he wrote, after quoting the lyrics to Bill Withers’ “Lovely Day.” “Welcome to the party, sweet girl.”
Dwayne posted three photos as well. One shows Gabrielle caressing the newborn as he looks on, and in the other two he’s holding the baby while Union watches.
The newborn arrived after Gabrielle struggled to get pregnant for years and admitted to having eight miscarriages. In her book “We’re Going to Need More Wine”’ she even wrote that her body was a prisoner to pregnancy attempts for three straight years.
After Wade posted the photos, he and Gabrielle received a flood of well-wishes and congratulations.
“Congrats, man. Blessings for you and your wife,” someone wrote.
“That’s awesome, congratulations,” wrote another person.
But a lot of folks only saw the posted photos and didn’t know Dwayne and Gabrielle used a surrogate. Some even thought Gabrielle was pregnant this entire time and did a stellar job of keeping it from the public.
A possible hint was the fact that Dwayne missed a recent game against the San Antonio Spurs for personal reasons and some are just now connecting the dots.
“When the hell did she get pregnant?” someone asked. “Lmao. Y’all pro athletes keep sh– on the low. I gotta learn from y’all.”
“Now I see why she was always in the cut in the pics,” another person commented. “Great way to get your last season poppin.’ God Bless y’all.”
This is the couple’s first child together, and Dwayne already has three children from previous relationships.
