It’s been a few days since Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade announced that they had welcomed a baby girl via surrogate. Since then, they’ve been relatively quiet on social media, which is understandable since their focus has been primarily on their newborn. But the pair gave fans an inside scoop into their life as new parents, and it’s clear that they’re tired, but oh so smitten with her.
Over the weekend, they shared photos of themselves doting on their daughter:
Union also joked that she hadn’t brushed her teeth or taken a real shower in days, but that despite the dip in hygiene due to the newborn’s needs, she is “in heaven”:
It also hasn’t been only feedings, naps, and adoration over skin-to-skin contact moments between mom, dad and baby. They’ve also enjoyed some Sunday football together. Well, actually, Dwyane watched very quietly while baby girl slept, which he was appreciative of :
As previously shared, Union and Wade announced the arrival of their daughter on Thursday to the shock of fans, but also to a lot of support. The couple has been open about fertility struggles and their journey to get to this point.
“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,” they wrote on Instagram. “Welcome to the party sweet girl!”
Although the NBA season is now fully in effect, Wade has taken some time off to be with Union and their daughter, whose name is yet to be revealed. He told the Associated Press on Sunday that he needs at least another week away from his teammates on the Miami Heat to be present for his family, and after the week is over, if baby girl is in a good place, he’ll “make a decision based on that.”
“With my daughter coming a couple weeks early, she’s a little tiny right now, so we’re making sure health-wise that she’s OK,” he said. “And for me, once I leave and go back to the season, not really being able to be with me everywhere I go, this time right now, this bonding moment with my daughter is the most important thing in my life at this time.”
