Gabrielle Union: The Being Mary Jane actress opened up about trying to have a baby with her husband, NBA player Dwyane Wade, in her book We're Going to Need More Wine, where she shared that she had suffered "eight or nine miscarriages." She explained, "For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant — I've either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle."
The struggle wasn't just physical, though. "For so many women, and not just women in the spotlight, people feel very entitled to know, 'Do you want kids?'" she wrote. "A lot of people, especially people that have fertility issues, just say 'no' because that's a lot easier than being honest about whatever is actually going on. People mean so well, but they have no idea the harm or frustration it can cause." (Photo via Tibrina Hobson/Getty Images)
