Gabrielle Union Reveals She Had 8 or 9 Miscarriages While Trying to Have a Baby

Gabrielle Union, 45, has developed a reputation for being remarkably candid about her life. From her run-ins with other celebrity women to her sexual assault, she doesn't sugarcoat the difficulties of her journey.

This week she appeared on the Dr. Oz show to open up about her struggles with infertility. She shared that she had 8 or 9 miscarriages during her attempts to get pregnant via invitro fertilization. Union, who is married to basketball start Dwyane Wade, said she didn't talk about her struggles because of the stigma associated with infertility. “Nobody wants the world to think they you’re defective,” she said.
