After years of going strong with boyfriend Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union reveals that she’s finally ready to have children.

The 40-year-old actress who previously said she couldn’t wrap her mind around having children has had a change of heart and says that she’s prepared to start a family.

“With the industry that we’re in it’s not taboo to be an older mom. There’s such a huge support to start a family older,” Union told Extra. “I’m at that point in my life where I’m happy and still wanting adventure, but I want part of that adventure to include a child.”

Union says it was always part of her plan to take things slow and wait until motherhood felt right for her.

“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.”
