Despite all the struggles that Gabrielle Union experienced on her path to motherhood, it seems like the actress just can’t catch a break.
After the 46-year-old and her husband, NBA star Dwyane Wade, surprised fans on social media with the arrival of their daughter Kaavia James via surrogate on Nov. 7, they were sadly met with backlash over the photos they used celebrate their little girl. In the series of pictures, Union was seen cradling her newborn in a bed alongside Wade, while wearing a hospital gown to allow for skin-to-skin bonding with their baby.
People on Twitter were both critical and curious of the nature of the photos, with one person tweeting, “Just curious why is Gabrielle Union in a hospital gown if that’s a surrogate child?”
Another user wrote, “Why was Gabrielle Union wearing a hospital gown LMAO.
