Gabrielle Union On Having a Child: “If It does Happen, it’s a Miracle”
Gabrielle Union recently got married and people are beginning to ask the 42 year old actress when the babies are coming. However, the cover star for Uptown Magazine‘s new issue is not being coy of defensive as she answers honestly and openly about her age being an obstacle to her fertility.
The new Mrs Dwyane Wade says her step-children from new husbands previous marriage, are fulfilling enough. But she doesn't rule out having her own children one day if it works out that way too. Read excerpts from her interview below...
On having kids:
“I think my brain and my heart are screaming baby fever. My ovaries, however, they’re coughing up dust. Yes, it’s in my heart and in my mind, and we’ll see if my body catches up with that.
I have really awesome step kids, so I feel equally as fulfilled. I’ve lasted 42 years without having a human being come from one of my orifices and I feel okay and fulfilled and happy. If it does happen, it’s a miracle—a medical miracle at least. I mean, we’d love to. We’ll see what my ovaries say. Cause right now they’re taking Geritol.”
On being a victim of the nude hack scandal:
“I literally heard the day after I got married. It happened after [we had] the most epic discussion with pre-teens and teenagers about Internet safety, social media, being a target and having to be smart. The next day I had to say, ‘Ummm. Of no fault of my own, um, you know, I’m naked on the Internet.'”
On managing her finances:
“I live so far below my means that if the career was taken away, I could get a job based on my level of education and my job skills, and I could still afford what I have. I plan ahead for the destruction, my financial ruin. I might borrow some hot shit, but you’re gonna come to my house and be like, ‘What happened to that dope bag that cost as much as a home?’ I borrow that. I give it right back.
