After years of facing fertility struggles, Gabrielle Union finally became a mother. 

Dwyane Wade and Union’s baby girl was born via surrogate last November. 

Now she’s revealing some ideas about what exactly they were looking for in a surrogate. 

Gabrielle Union  covered Women’s Health magazine’s March 2019 issue, and dicussed a few personal things with the mag.   

 On her fertility problems: “There’s nothing more that I wanted than to cook my own baby…the idea of it felt like surrendering to failure.”

On maintaining an active lifestyle: “I need sun. I need Vitamin D on my face. Give me a trail, a park, a walk down the street with the dogs, a breeze, rain. I’ll go hike. I’ll get a lawn chair and sit outside my trailer so I’m not trapped inside.”  

On choosing a surrogate for her daughter: “Some people care about the race, religion, or food habits of their surrogate. I was like, ‘I want a reader.’”  

I would have opted for a hooper, but a reader is a pretty good plan too.
