In the post, Wade welcomed the baby girl born Wednesday night via surrogate using lyrics from Bill Withers' song "Lovely Day". She had "eight or nine" miscarriages, the actress wrote in her 2017 book, and discovered this year she was unable to get pregnant due to a type of endometriosis. "Welcome to the party sweet girl".

Those "personal reasons" for Dwyane Wade missing the Miami Heat's game against the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday became clearer Thursday.

But the good news. they found a surrogate who carried the child for them - and now they've got the baby they've been dreaming about!

The baby daughter is Wade's fourth child and first with Union.

The couple had been trying to have a kid for years but Union has struggled with infertility, a battle she's talked about publicly. The star told Dr. Oz, "There's so much shame and mystery and guilt that surrounds fertility issues and that's why I wanted to include it in my book because I'm exhausted of it". 'Then I became a stepmom, and there was no place I'd rather be than with them'. The athlete is also dad to a third son, Xavier, who lives with his mother.

The US star first started dating basketball player Dwyane in 2009 and tied the knot in August 2014 following a brief break in 2013 due to work commitments.

'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.

"The gag is I had it in my early twenties", she continued. The couple also parent Wade's nephew Dahveon Morris.
