Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade Welcome a Baby Girl Via Surrogate

It’s a lovely day! Gabrielle Union and husband Dwayne Wade welcomed their first child together, a baby girl, via surrogate.

Union announced the news on Thursday, November 8 via Instagram sharing a picture of the new parents with their bundle of joy. Quoting a Bill Withers song ‘Lovely Day’, the actress started off by reciting the beginning of the iconic song.


Gabrielle Union went on to write, 
“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.”


She ended by saying to her daughter, “Welcome to the party sweet girl!”.

This is the first child for Union, 46. She is a stepmom to her NBA hubby three son’s that he has from previous relationships, Zaire, 16, Zion, 11, and Xavier, 4. The basketball star’s nephew Dahveon Morris, 17, also lives with the family.

 

The Being Mary Jane star is no stranger to fertility struggles. Union revealed in her 2017 book, We’re Going to Need More Wine, that she had been trying to conceive for years and had not been successful. “I had eight or nine miscarriages. For three years, my body has been a prisoner of trying to get pregnant — I’ve either been about to go into an IVF cycle, in the middle of an IVF cycle, or coming out of an IVF cycle.”

Wade's very serious about our denim.

 She went on to write,  “For so many women, and not just women in the spotlight, people feel very entitled to know, ‘Do you want kids?’ 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. People mean so well, but they have no idea the harm or frustration it can cause.”

Union and Wade, 36, tied the knot in August 2014. Even though they had multiple failed attempts at conceiving a child together the couple remained committed to bringing a child of their own into the world. In her memoir, Union said she and Wade, “remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we’ve both dreamed of.”

Trend Alert: Umbilical Jewelry is the Latest Trend Among New Mothers

Are you wondering what to do with your newborn’s umbilical cord? Well instead of putting it in a safe place or in your newborn’s keepsake box why not make it into a piece of jewelry that you can wear every day? That’s right, you heard right. The latest trend among new mamas is sending your child’s umbilical cord away and having it made into a piece of jewelry.

It may sound crazy and hard to believe that there’s a market for such of thing but we found out there is multiple jewelers that will do such a thing. Why not right? Women today are saving their placenta from birth and making it into capsules for postpartum recovery.

Ruth Avra, 39, a trained metalsmith and jeweler is one of the many skilled jewelers out there making umbilical jewelry. After the birth of her son in 2012, Avra thought of the idea and started designing the latest trendy keepsake jewelry.

Ava’s friend gave the jeweler the stump of her baby’s umbilical cord in 2011. At the time, Avra didn’t know what to do with it so she held onto it. “She asked me to make something out of it, but I had no idea what to do,” Avra recalled. But it wasn’t until her son was born a year later that she had that ‘Aha’ moment.

Avra was mesmerized at the vast difference between her son’s umbilical cord and her friend’s. “These are really organic pieces—no two are anywhere alike,” she says. Avra got to work making a necklace for herself and her friend. She loved the challenge of the unique differences between the two that forced her creativity flow to go beyond her bounds. Before she knew it, “suddenly I was making them for all my friends,” she says.

Avra now sells them online and has even expanded her line and now does jewelry with your child’s baby teeth, baby’s first hair clippings, hospital bracelets, and cremated ashes.

Hilary Duff Welcomes Daughter

Hilary Duff Welcomes Daughter with Boyfriend Matthew Koma

Hilary Duff’s little princess has arrived! The Lizzie McGuire alum announced on Instagram Monday that she and boyfriend Matthew Koma welcomed their daughter on October 25.

Duff, 31, posted a precious picture of herself holding her daughter with Koma by his two girls side. “Banks Violet Bair this little bit has fully stolen our hearts! She joined our world at home on Thursday afternoon and is absolute magic,” she wrote.

Proud new papa Koma, 31, shared the same photo on his Instagram account writing, “ We welcome a beautiful daughter, little sister, and best friend for life. Could not possibly be more grateful for our growing family and for the who makes it all possible. Cloud ten.”

The new parents revealed their baby news back in June on social media announcing they were expecting a bundle of joy of their own. Duff posted a picture of herself giving her beau a kiss on the cheek while showing off her growing belly. She wrote alongside the picture, “Guess what guys! @matthewkoma and I made a little princess of our own and we couldn’t be more excited!!!!!!”

The Younger star is also a mom to 6-year-old son Luca who she shares with ex-husband Mike Comrie. This is the first child for Duff’s musician babe.

Koma was a doting boyfriend for his pregnant girlfriend during her pregnancy. Duff gushed back in August of her beau who was going to great lengths to pacify her pregnancy cravings.

Hilary Duff documented on an Instagram story that Koma had driven around town looking for Duff’s request of Good & Plenty’s. She later showed all the sweet treats Koma had scored along the way along with the much sought out candy request.

Duff handled pregnancy like a champ embracing her body changing all through the different stages that pregnancy brings. In July the Disney star alum wrote about the wonder’s of the female body and how amazing women truly are.

“The boobs are big the belly is big the body is big. Man.. pregnancy is hard. Giving love to all mamas who make it look effortless… this journey is hard as hell and also incredibly special. Lovely to have a little life inside and to daydream of all the new adventures to come buuuut almost impossible to get my own shoes on,” she captioned a mirror selfie. “Sick of getting up 9 times a night to pee and looking at this weird body in the mirror that is not my own at the moment. Women are so bada**, this was just a note to remind myself and remind others how’s strong and beautiful you are! WE GOT THIS!

‘The Bachelor’ Sean Lowe’s 5-Month-Old Son is In ICU

The Bachelor Sean Lowe and his wife Catherine Giudici are now dealing with some scary news. Their son, who is just five-months-old, is in ICU. US Weekly shared the details, but Catherine has also been documenting it on her Instagram. 

Isaiah is in the pediatric ICU dealing with bronchiolitis. Sean shared a post that explained what is going on with him. Here is what he had to say about it.

“Long story short — we took our little dude to the pediatrician yesterday for a bad cough he developed and ended up in the pediatric ICU. We’re still here and probably will be for a couple more days. Isaiah’s got bronchiolitis and his little body is having a tough time getting enough oxygen. He’s not having the best time but the doctors and nurses have been great and we’re just super thankful we took him to the doctor when we did. We’re confident he’ll be just fine but prayers are always welcome.”

Sean and Catherine Lowe are both sharing posts and seem very concerned about their son. He is really young, which that alone can be scary when they are sick. Catherine shared that she feels like the prayers that the fans are sending are really helping. In the comments, fans are reaching out for support for their little boy.

Samuel and Isaiah are very close to each other. These two boys spend a lot of time together and like to play together often. Sean and Catherine are always showing pictures of their sons. Sean did share not long ago that they might want to have another child soon. He is hopeful that they can end up with a girl that looks like his wife Catherine at some point.

Sean and Catherine Lowe are a fan favorite couple from The Bachelor. They fell in love, didn’t wait forever to get married and started having kids. They seem like everything is going great for them, which is amazing. Hopefully, their son will be doing better soon and they can get back home again. These two are living a normal life in Texas and didn’t go the celebrity route like a lot of couples do after being on The Bachelor.

If you want to keep up with how Sean and Catherine Lowes’s son is doing, checking their social networks will be the best way. Also, don’t miss watching Colton Underwood as The Bachelor when it starts airing on Mondays in January on ABC.
