On Thursday evening, Union shared three precious new photos on her Instagram page, announcing to the world that she and Wade had welcome a daughter via surrogate

"A LOVELY DAY," wrote Union, adding by way of confirmation:

"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!"

This is the first child for Union, who has been very open in the past about her numerous miscarriages.

Wade, meanwhile, has three sons (Xavier Zechariah, 5; Zion Malachi Airamis; 11; and Zaire Blessing Dwyane, 16) from a previous relationship — and he and Union are also raising his 17-year old nephew.

In the memoir she released last year, "We’re Going to Need More Wine," Union revealed she “had eight or nine miscarriages," writing in the biography:

"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."

The couple got married in August of 2014 after dating for many years.

Even after enduring those three years of failed IVF cycles and being so very bloated from the hormones at nearly all times, Union explained in her memoir that she and Wade “remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we’ve both dreamed of."

And that day has finally now arrived.

With a Baby!

No information is available about the surrogate, as we would expect.

And neither Wade nor Union revealed the name of their daughter nor any of her measurements.

But who cares, right?!? She’s here!!!!

Added Union on Instagram, quoting song lyrics:

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.

Other celebrities have also gone the surrogate route to have kids.

Most notably to most readers, as we assume, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West used this method in order to being their third child into the world due to complications related to Kim’s first two pregnancies.

Please join us in screaming CONGRATULATIONS as loudly as you can to Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade!

Your daughter is perfect, guys.
