Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade recently welcomed daughter Kaavia James via surrogate. Now they’re talking to Oprah Winfrey about the experience – and the backlash they received.
In the all-new special, “Oprah at Home with Gabrielle Union, Dwayne Wade & Their New Baby,” the two revealed that people questioned why they announced their daughter’s birth with Gabrielle resting in a hospital bed. “Everyone started talking about why she acting like she just had a baby,” Dwayne said. When Oprah asked her to explain, she referenced her fertility struggles and added, “It’s still hard to let go.”
Kaavia is Gabrielle’s first child. Dwayne has three sons and a nephew he’s raising. You can hear all about it when “Oprah at Home with Gabrielle Union, Dwayne Wade & Their New Baby” airs on Saturday night on OWN.
