Gabrielle Union shared an intimate photo of the first time she saw her daughter, Kaavia James, in the delivery room, alongside a heartfelt caption about Mother’s Day.
Gabrielle just celebrated her first Mother’s Day as a mom. She and husband Dwyane Wade welcomed Kaavia last November. The baby was born via surrogate after years of infertility struggles, miscarriages, and difficult IVF treatments.
For Mother’s Day, Gabrielle posted a photo of the moment she and Dwyane laid eyes upon Kaavia for the very first time.
“I’ve cried so many times today for so many reasons, mainly because I’d gotten accustomed to heartbreak and disappointment,” she wrote in the caption.
“I think a lot of us live in that space. I set up shop there.”
“This moment reminded me that miracles do happen,” she continued.
Gabrielle went on to send love to “all the mamas, stepmamas, grandmas, aunties real and play, daddies, friends, and anyone who has taken the time to nurture another living soul.”
