At 40, Gabrielle Union Has Changed Her Mind about Becoming a Mother

By  |  0 Comments


Gabrielle Union, at 40 years old, has a lot of inspiration when it comes to motherhood.  Her fellow actress Halle Berry is 46 and pregnant, and with technology today, anything appears to be possible.

The woman dating Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade is now openly speculating about her consideration of motherhood, after looking good and being in amazing shape for her age.

Union has often said that marriage is for the birds, and never spoke much about kids in the past.  This is why some were surprised to see her interview with “Extra,” where she stated that she might want to give the baby-making thing a try.  Well, may not baby-making, but certainly baby-delivering.

“I always knew I was going to wait really long and I followed the Halle Berry example. I think in the next couple of years, if I’m lucky, I will make that a reality, hopefully,” Union said.

Union’s partner Dwyane has two sons from a prior marriage, which has given her plenty of mommy practice.   She says that letting go of the freedom of singlehood will be tough for her, but that she might not mind the responsibility.

“I knew I wasn’t going to be the kind of parent I would want to be. I would be way too selfish and resent having to miss out on things. Now, I’m in a place where I’m happy and still want adventure but I want part of that adventure to include a child,” said Union.
