Gabrielle Union shocked her fans when she shared the news that she and husband Dwyane Wade had a baby girl via a secret surrogate.

The baby was conceived via in vitro fertilization and delivered by a surrogate on Wednesday, Nov. 7, according to a post on Gabby's Instagram account on Thursday.

Gabrielle posted images on Instagram.com that showed her cradling the newborn in a hospital bed as Dwyane, 36, sat beside her.

She captioned the images:

"A LOVELY DAY [baby emojis] We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that our 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! #onelastdance #skintoskin @dwyanewade..."

The 46-year-old actress hired a surrogate to carry her baby after many failed IVF procedures.

She relied on good pal Kim Kardashian to help her with her decision to hire a surrogate.

Kim and Kanye West's youngest daughter Chicago West was delivered by a surrogate about 11 months ago.

"Gabrielle had her worries about doing a surrogacy but one person who really helped ease her fears was Kim Kardashian," a source tells Hollywoodlife.com. "Kim has nothing but good things to say about surrogacy. Her experience was so positive it helped Gabrielle going into this to know that Kim had done it with so much success."

In her memoir We're Going to Need More Wine, Gabby revealed she suffered eight or nine miscarriages.

Medical advances in fertilization techniques allow older women like Gabrielle to experience motherhood after 35, when pregnancies are considered high risk.

In August, Gabby opened up about her fertility struggles, saying she was unable to conceive due to a form of endometriosis.

"Towards the end of my fertility journey I finally got some answers," she told the audience at the BlogHer conference. "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.”

Wade is father to 3 sons, and he has custody of his nephew.

    Congratulations to Gabrielle and Dwyane.

    My goodness and I thought my comment was terrible!
    LMAO

  • LYRICS

    Nope! News to the world!

  • Guess Who

    LMMFAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAO!!!!

  • Phillybruh

    Because she will stay in the hospital as long as the baby is in the hospital.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    That baby needs skin to skin contact with her mother! That's why she is dressed down in a hospital gown! I swear you ppl be needing something to squeal at!

  • Guess Who

    Ok, a full day, maybe two depending on baby's health.
    The hospital gown was required...getting the full experience of mothers who actually give birth?

  • Coco Mcluvin

    This is why I don't get Kandi saying she doesn't know anyone she could talk to about this process. I'm sure she can reach out and get advice from Kim who has been very open about this process or find someone to talk to.

  • Guess Who

    Well, with your exclamation points, you seem to be the one that's squealing...I'm just asking questions...

  • cherrypie

    Girl, we had this whole convo yesterday. Get ready cause they ALL about to go in just for asking a simple question. 5,4,3,2,1...let's go!!

  • Guess Who

    LOL...they know IDGAF. It's Friday, and Apple Crown awaits me later on.

    LOL

  • Coco Mcluvin

    She obviously wants to be as close to the experience as possible. Why does she need to be dressed up to meet her first child?

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Nah, bish you trying to be funny.. "Like she pushed the kid out herself" Now, you just asking questions? smh

  • Guess Who

    Hell, you got me. I just found the shyt odd and still do.

  • Phillybruh

    But its levels to Celebrity I doubt anyone can just up and call these people.

  • cherrypie

    A better question is...why you so bothered?????

  • cherrypie

    Alot of us said the same thing yesterday only to have her STANS come out swangin lol. I had time yesterday tho...today... not so much. I need to do some work.

  • Guess Who

    Untouchable hoe...who are you to lie to?
    You in your feelings? Girl, go wash yo azz and pop a Valium.

  • Phillybruh

    She had on no shirt or bra underneath I would think she wanted to cover up some.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I didn't know Kim and Gabby were that close. So she chose Kim to help her on her surrogate jurney? I guess she couldn't find anybidy else

  • Guess Who

    LOL FUK her stans. Folks worship mufukas that wouldn't piss on them if they were on fire. Nose snotty, ready to fight, lol. Again, fuk them..with Gabby's gnarled first deep in they azzes.

  • Guess Who

  • Phillybruh

    That's possible, But I doubt Kim K can just call up Janet or Madonna..levels.

  • HotInCleveland

    You almost had me fall out because you said everything I was thinking.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

  • Wreckognize Game

    That's great that Kim was able to help.

  • Phillybruh

    Wouldn't the break babies other parent have to agree to allowing Gabby to adopt it?

  • Wreckognize Game

    She is doing skin to skin contact.

  • Renee26

    Naw but if they put Kris on the job she'll get those digits ?

  • Alextra Ballard

    I can bleeve that.

  • sherri2016

    Michelle reveal she was having infertility issues as well. Alot of wimmen have infertility issues that just refuse to tawk openly about it. I guess it's their choice

  • MsPam

    No Kim surrogate was a fan of Kim’s and volunteered to be her surrogate.

  • Guess Who

    LOL....you legit becoming unhinged right before our eyes.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    LOL.. Nah, it's Friday. I'm good.

  • Coy little wink

    Say what? Let me go get some IVF I want a boy!

  • Renee26

    Yeah just like the nannys and maids... Not just any old person can do it. They pay big money for privacy and use agencies

  • hottlanta

    I left out walking like a bow legged cowboy wearing tight Levi jeans.

  • Phillybruh

    That's going to cost you to find out the sex.

  • Coy little wink

    I can't deal with another sassypants girl ?

  • Phillybruh

    my kids mom wants a girl but she is giving this man of hers a year to see where they are going first.

  • Coy little wink

    Chile I'm taking this with a grain of salt...Auntie likes to troll us don't forget

  • T Willis

    Yoooooo ?? I’m out ??

  • Sweetness

    Question...so Michelle DID NOT give birth to Sasha and Malia? Not trying to be humorous. Just curious.

  • Sara

    Sandra, you’re the worst!! You always show the most horrific pics of people. What is wrong with you?

  • Alextra Ballard

    I'm just happy for Gabby that she finally got the baby that she wanted for so long. Some wimmen are not fortunate enuff to conceive and carry a child. But I am glad she still can experience new life through surrogacy. Again Congrts to Gabby and D.Wade.

  • Phillybruh

    She gave birth to them, her eggs were just fertilized outside of her body then put back in.

  • Sweetness

    Ok. Thank you.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Saw this. +1 on the book

  • Guest

    I wasn't ready! lol!

  • Guest

    Wait lemme scroll back up!

  • Guest

    Yup.

  • Renee26

    Hey! Sounds like a damnnn good time!!

  • davine puddin

    If i could afford it i would love to be a mother again

  • Yoni7

    Understood and agreed! LOL

  • FukkFolks2018

    I'm tired of this being the argument. That it's so needed or medically ness. Wtf did folks do before this was the norm to bond with newborns???? Traditional or surrogate birth???? Millions of babies born prior to this new age mess were FINE. Folks put too much into these newfound medical practices and take them as gospel.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Wow didn’t know

  • FukkFolks2018

    The hospital gown wasnt even required. My goddaughter just gave birth start of this year. She birthed in her own gown.

  • Tahj

    Congrats!!! Im real happy for her.

  • tintin

    wow she real close to you to be talking about her life like that. i do not have those conversations with my first kids mom

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    I mean....what's going on with Gabby's wig in the first picture? Was it supposed to be spray painted to resemble a part? Wearing wigs like that...Dewayne is going to have another baby on her....with a girl with a visible part.

  • tintin

    sometimes it's all those abortions they probably had. Guarantee you many of these women were having many abortions in their 20s and messed up their uterus.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Trust me...they're not friends at all.

  • KirB2016

    The wig!!!!!! I just zoomed in ???

  • Bashi22

    Love that IVF are helping out women. They keep forcing it down our throats

  • Desi

    Ms. Sandra, you know you’re wrong using that pic of her with that wacky hair-hat on her head. ?

  • Bri

    Wow, you’re right! The lace is exposed and the makeup they used to cover it!

  • Shamwow

    I know a few women like that (abortions), plus there are women with the same condition who had children younger. The body says heck naw to a baby being carried in a exhausted uterus at 34. Shoo anytime a baby is carried it’s exhausting normally.

  • lil goodie

    Not trying to be mean but maybe now that she had her "own" baby.. she will accept the break baby and publicly embrace the child.. ijs

  • Fire & Ice

    Fix it Jesus. You're wrong fa dis ???

  • Coco Mcluvin

    Why wouldn't Kandi be able to call/contact Kim? Unless, she just doesn't want to....Seriously?!

  • Dowoop

    Maybe she don't want to call Kim.

  • Dowoop

    You about to give some people a heart attack by asking why she acting like she pushed that baby out herself.

  • Dowoop

    They had their panties in a bunch yesterday.

  • RealATLPeach36

    No you’re right!!! But karma will teach both of them.

    Next her wig....WHYYYYYYYY?

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Congrats..I know that some women even after surrogacy feel incomplete some how. I pray that this is not her case. It is hurtful when a woman is unable to do what her body is suppose to do naturally so I will not judge her road to motherhood. I remember when I delivered two babies prematurely.. I felt incomplete like I why couldn't my body hold onto a baby.. it wasn't until my 3rd that I went full term and got to experience the fulfillment of pregnancy...

  • Guess Who

    LMMFAO...that was not my intent. TBH, my main concern was that wig, that's why I posted my comments about that first.

  • Torae

    She has too much money to be wearing a beauty supply wig with foundation on the part? I wonder if she did that style herself....

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    God bless the baby.

  • Y me?

    I would so afraid to use a surrogate. I understand that is the only choice some have, but idk if I could ever trust someone that much with MY baby. I wud have to put the surrogate mommy in a home with security cameras all over and a chaperone any time she left. Are you secretly smoking? Using drugs? Wearing a seat belt? Eating right? Id drive myself crazy

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    I can't see past that tragedy wig she got on

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_
  • Maxx

    I am sure she just finished giving her husband some of that good good in the back of the limo ya'll...that's why her hair is jacked up...must of been good girl!!! :)

  • Eileen

    Yes you are so right!!

  • Eileen

    Wow ..this is what you don't hear from the feminists the dark side of abortions

  • Eileen

    This what I was saying ! Idk maybe she wanted to at least get in the mood of what it's like when you deliver .....smh she got needles and all going on in the photo

  • Passion

    I thought it was her natural hair with gray new growth because dye can make the hair look just like her hair. If it’s a wig ...what was she thinking?!

  • Coco Mcluvin

    Then maybe she doesn't want to talk about it all. The point was, she could've found someone to talk to.

  • Cara

    Why is she laying in hospital bed as if she gave birth. I'm confuse. Plus that wig . Didn't she make it seem like she cut her natural hair into a bob few months ago.

  • BEANTOWN BULLI

    My thougts exactly!! You would have thought she went through 9 months pregnancy, and birth pains!!!

  • Nina Ross

    Congratulations! I really happy for her;)

  • Dowoop

    Was that the point?

  • Vegas1989

    Yep! The lace don't even match her skin and plus someone cut it all crooky...LOLSMH...All that money she has and don't have a decent wig maker /installer....Come see me and I will hook you up....

  • HotInCleveland

    I can’t with yall today! Not “with a girl with a visible part”. ??????

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I didn't tell her to wear that mess on her head. ?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    What did I do now? ?

  • Slickone

    I wonder was she able to use her own eggs or the surrogates ?

  • EMILY POST

    That is crazy weird... like uhmmm why are you in a hospital gown like you went through labor or delivered a baby... I like her though but that’s weird.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It's doubtful she used her own eggs. At age 46 her eggs are powdered.

  • Queen B

    Girl burn that girl ?

  • KirB2016

    she wasn't...nobody was

  • My Thoughts

    Eventhough she didn't give birth, she's bonding with the baby via skin- to- skin contact, notice Dwayne is shirtless to bond as well. This is encouraged at birth. There are other benefits as well.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Baby. Girls are a mess. I understand. I overstand lol

  • EMILY POST

    Ok thanks for the info... I thought she was doing a movie or something and they used those pictures lol

  • gail jones

    Wade need to STOP... like its his first time

  • TheOwley

    The parents are with the surrogate. The baby is cleaned up and moved into a room with the expecting parents for bonding, etc. Not at all unusual.

  • TheOwley

    Congratulations to them. And kudos for not wearing a fake belly. Surrogacy is fine.

  • ShWa

    Congrats to the Wade family, so much negativity on this post geez....

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Spray painting a part on a wig has nothing to do with sex in the back of the limo.

  • http://crimsonhairextensions.bigcartel.com/ http://crimsonhairextensions.b

    If the baby was born but surrogate, the why is Gabby in a hospital gown ? The cover onto used is horrible, her lace wig is bougus!!

  • Ms. Jackson

    I'm happy for her. I seen the post on her IG... But scrolled past. Congrats! ?

  • Peace

    Really. This womam been saving her eggs since 4ever after the first miscarriage prolly with her first husband .

    Geesh the ignorance and hate .

    Congrats on the baby girl Gabby .

  • Peace

    Ok. This is Gabby. Period. Nobody knew her business till she wanted the world to know.

  • Harley

    Not this again!! She is the child’s mom and it’s called skin to skin a bonding technique. Google it

  • Harley

    I know plenty of women who have children over 45

  • Harley

    So sad to be that hateful

  • Harley

    It’s called skin to skin a bonding technique

  • NaeNay

    What’s going with her roots in that first pic?

  • Slickone

    ??????

  • Maxx

    Yeah but if it wasn't for the great sex she just participated in, her wig wouldn't have been disheveled and we wouldn't have even noticed the makeup on the wig...ijs

  • Desi

    Congrats to them. Why did you pick that headline pic Sandra? That wig look like it was picked out of a box from the neighborhood theater. ?

  • Taj

    Her hair stylist tried it with that concealer on the lace part. Some of these hollywood hair stylists don't have nothin on the youtube girls. They have their lace wigs LAY-ED.

  • Ci Sam

    Now Sandra you know that wig in that main pic is terrible. That concealer is atrocious

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Again, I did not tell her to wear that wig.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Her stylist doesn't like her. This wig is tragic. I hope she didn't pay for it.

  • Lady_Elle

    So true...
    So often women of color are DRAGGED by a huge number of posters on this site! :-(

  • J2PC

    There are women who naturally gotten pregnant with their oopsie baby at age 47. Unlikely, but still possible that a good geneticist helped to picked out the healthiest egg from her.

  • 2gr8ful

    Congrats to them wishing them all the best.

  • Ang

    I was wondering why there were so many colors in that wig. Why does a wig need concealer? Shouldn’t they buy it the right color?

  • Ang

    Yep but You know folks don’t want too much logic. I didn’t want to say because I knew someone would take offense and go on a rant but couldn’t she have exposed the baby to skin wearing a camisole shirt? A camisole practically has everything out anyway and you can pull it down if needed then still be wearing a shirt when you’re not holding the baby. *shrugs*

  • T Willis

    Lmao!! It’s the lace. The lace usually comes in light, medium, and dark. So sometimes stylists will use wigs that have dark lace, and just use concealer to lighten it up on the scalp and edges.

  • T Willis

    Lmao ?

  • Ang

    Oh I see. I don’t know anything about wigs. It’s weird that Gaby would go through all that trouble for a bad wig when her wear such as bag wig when real hair looks better. Her real hair certainly couldn’t have looked any worse than that mess that is multiple colors.

  • Merkaba morris

    This wig looks like a dead skunk on her head , and I 'm sorry I jus dont like this couple I don't like how they did his first wife , and was so unapologetic about the way they treated her , u guys have a short memory and will celebrate anything , but about bringing these artificial petri dish children into the world is not a good thing to me ....Because for one we dont know what species they are reproducing , and anyone who take advice from Kim Kardashin is suspect because I know those gypsies are not light beings . Is it jus me or is all these entertainers using alternative methods to have kids which means unnatural , and anything unnatural I dont want no parts of .....If the Entertainment business is promoting something so hard I am very leery about it because they all are sell outs . I am a freethinker so I think out of the box . And I know All the Entertainmers are actors playing out a script nothing is what it appears to be ....So this would be a No for me . I try to look at the bigger picture . And I always ask Why ?
    ..Love and Light

  • davine puddin

    Omg that wig lace front is giving me the sads. Did she piss someone off? I am deeply shocked

  • kekeb

    Say what you want about Kim K, but she is GORGEOUS!

  • Allihave2say

    Gabbi needs to stop messing with her face. Happy for her but still don't like her.
    Kim needs to stop chopping her nose before she becomes LaToya Jackson or Wendy Williams.

  • Coco

    Shouldn’t you expect to hear this from doctors? They’re not exactly against it.
