In an excerpt published by People magazine from her new book titled We’re Going to Need More Wine, the Being Mary Jane star revealed;

“I have 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 also said that after three years of IVF treatments, her and hubby Dwyane Wade “remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we’ve both dreamed of.”

The 44-year-old actress who has been married to NBA player Wade since 2014, said she had gone through three years of IVF in an effort to conceive.

“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,” she said.

  • I love Gabrielle, I do but there are worse ppl out there with worse problems.

    • Going without food in africa, no homes, no schools…… Can I go on?
      If u lost 9 eggs would you say u lost 9 chickens?
      She had miscarriages.

    • U cud go on but u suffering is suffering, u cant say eish my aids is worse than your aids…why in anycase are u comparing her situation with africans… I actually know her better than i know tbe homeless guy in shurugwi so i can actually have more empathy for her …its not always political sir

    • Now u are comparing a miscarriage to chicken eggs …u are an idiot sir…i shudnt have even engaged u in this debate.u have bin a waste of my time.

    • I been a waste of your time but still u can afford to comment on my wall twice before I can reply.
      BTW u do not know her, say u watch her often, which is not knowing her.
      I never knocked on your door, I never came to ask shit from u, if u were that smart u could have just ignored the idiot and carried on with your life.

    • Its not on your wall if it was on your wall i wudnt have seen this post,but you posted on nehandas page so anyone can respond to you and i did just that…i replied twice becoz u edited your comment so i had to add another response also…but u are still an idiot for comparing a womans struggle to chicken eggs., i hope all the women in your family including your wife, suffer miscarriages maybe when it affects u directly you will know not to make fun of other peoples pain. And for your information as a smart human bieng i cant sit and ignore idiots i try my best to mke them see the light but in your case i failed to.mke u see the light…so i leave u here with your stupidity and ignorance. Try enjoy the rest of yo day sir byeeee

    • I’m struggling to c the part where u are smart.
      And yet u continue allowing me waste your time.
      I wonder what u call light. Your description of light is definitely not the same same as mine.

  • Huya uzoona madzbba

  • ngaape hupenyu hwake kuna Kristu shumba yerudzi rwaJudha ikangodzvowa kamwechete chibereko chinodzikama icho

  • Sorry Gabrielle

  • Because maybe she once had many abortions or used birth controls too much too long ever since she was a young girl…I hear the USA and other advanced countries make birth control methods easily available even to 12 year old girls.You never know with women ,they have dark dirty,yucky secrets about their past and they hide and lie about it.

    • Many abortion she might have undertaken

    • She was raped wen she was 16 and she hated man a lot …so I dnt think she had multiple boyfriends back then …Dwayne Wade akatoita luck coz Gabrielle aisada zvevarume

    • Dont put rape in this . She might have had plenty of guys n maybe abortions n all we dont know bt being raped isnt the reason she had the miscarriages. If she hates man that much why does she sleep w them in almost every movies she does

    • Dominic Deekay Kasere I am replying to that guy’s comments abt abortions …

  • very sorry Gabrielle, i feel for you i really do, i like your acting so very much, i don’t know if you believe but GOD will make a way even where there is no way

  • She is a fighter

  • That’s what you get when you take someone’s men.

  • Tell her to contact me

  • Nine! Time for u to stop coz u will as a result die

  • Tough

  • Aisvotora uyu

  • Painful.
