“When I wake up in the mornin’ love, and the sunlight hurts my eyes, and there’s, something without warning, love bears heavy on my mind. Then I look at you and the world’s alright with me. Just one look at you and I know its gonna be a lovely day, a lovely day.”

She went on to say they are “so excited” to share the news of their “miracle baby.”

“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!”

Gabrielle has been very open about her struggle with infertility, opening up in her memoir “We’re Going To Need More Wine” about her 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 said. This led to her and Dwyane deciding to use a surrogate, which was successful.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
