The baby girl is the first child for Union, 46, while Wade, 36, is dad to sons Xavier Zechariah, 5 on Saturday, Zion Malachi Airamis, 11, and Zaire Blessing Dwyane, 16. He also raises nephew Dahveon Morris, 17.

Union previously opened up about her struggles with infertility in her 2017 memoir We’re Going to Need More Wine, revealing she “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,” she wrote.

The Being Mary Jane star and longtime basketball pro Wade, who recently re-signed to the Miami Heat, married in August 2014 after a lengthy courtship.

And even after enduring three years of failed IVF cycles and being constantly bloated from the hormones, Union wrote in her memoir that she and Wade “remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we’ve both dreamed of.”
