The lovely Gabrielle Union is the cover lady for the latest issue of Glamour. The actress spoke about motherhood, dealing with IVF and much more in her interview. Here’s a glimpse of the Gabrielle Union interview.
On raising her daughter, Kaavia James, in the public eye: “Part of the journey is being OK with how others—specifically moms—are viewing you, judging you, praising you. So much of Instagram life is creating these perfect illusions, right? People have kids—even through surrogacy or IVF or whatever—and the kids just appear. Rarely do we hear how…What was the journey? Without understanding what got to baby, it feels like easy and overnight. And that’s not the case.”
On learning about infertility treatments: “The only reason I heard about certain doctors or treatments or new technologies or new procedures was through a whisper network, and mainly from women who did not look like me.”
On why she decides to share about her daughter: “When you share so much pain and grief over the decades that I’ve been in this business doing press, you’re kind of just, like, ‘I want to share some f*cking joy.’ She brings me joy.”
On how she makes time for self-care: “My group chat…” “This morning I burned some sage, I stared at my vision board, I made a playlist on Spotify, and I gave myself five fucking minutes.”
On her character Syd in the new series, L.A’s Finest: “I wanted her to have a very full sexual life, like Mary Jane. I wanted her to have more sexual fluidity than any character I’ve ever had.”
