Gabrielle Union has welcomed a baby girl into the world – after undergoing a secret surrogacy.

The 46-year-old actress and her husband Dwyane Wade are now proud parents of a “miracle baby” girl after secretly hiring a surrogate mother to carry the tot for them.

In a post on Twitter on Thursday, Nov. 08, 2018, Union revealed her daughter had been born one day earlier in a note that read: “A LOVELY DAY. We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that our little miracle baby arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days. Welcome to the party sweet girl! (sic)”

The post also included some lyrics to the Bill Withers song “Lovely Day,” as well as three pictures of the happy couple with their new bundle of joy.

Basketball star Dwyane – who already has Zaire, 16, Zion, 11, and Xavier, 4, from previous relationships – posted the same message in a tweet on his own account, alongside the same pictures.

The happy news comes after Union recently revealed she suffers from adenomyosis – a form of endometriosis which only occurs in the uterus – which has left her infertile and caused her to experience several miscarriages.

She said: “Towards the end of my fertility journey I finally got some answers. Everyone said ‘You’re a career woman, you’ve prioritized your career, you waited too long and now you’re just too old to have a kid – and that’s on you for wanting a career.’ The reality is I actually have adenomyosis.”

Adenomyosis causes the uterus to become enlarged, and sufferers may also be plagued with heavy and painful periods and chronic pelvic pain.

The only cure for the condition is to undergo a hysterectomy, in which the uterus is removed.
