“We are sleepless and delirious, but so excited to share that our miracle baby arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days. Welcome to the party sweet girl!” Union wrote.
Union also added the hashtag, #skintoskin.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, skin to skin contact is essential for bonding newborns with their mothers.
Back in August, Union revealed that she had been diagnosed with adenomyosis, which affects a woman’s uterus. The issue caused her to suffer approximately “eight or nine” miscarriages, along with the actress attempting in vitro fertilization with no success.
We’re so happy that after many tests and trials, Union and Wade finally got their dream come true. Congrats on your new addition!
