All that glitter isn't gold, as the pretty Hollywood actress Gabrielle Union has revealed that she has suffered eight to nine miscarriages.

According to People magazine, Gabrielle Union revealed in her new book about her struggles with infertility. In her upcoming memoir, she writes on her attempts to get pregnant with husband NBA star Dwayne Wade.


“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,” Union wrote in the book.

She said that she initially did not think she wanted to be a mother, but after spending time with her stepchildren she decided that she wanted to try to start a family with Wade. Even after three years of hormone treatments and failed IVF cycles, she wrote that she and her husband “remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we’ve both dreamed of.”

In the book, she also spoke about what the fertility treatments are doing to her body. “Once a month I look like I’m in my second trimester because I’m bloated.

“It leads to the questions and it leads to the rumors and anytime I go into a doctor’s office I feel like I’m a member of SEAL Team Six undercover because I don’t want people to speculate," she said.

"If I worried about dumbass comments from dumbasses I wouldn't get a damn thing done. So, stay miserable & move out the way. I'm very busy."
