"This was a big year for us and our relationship from the standpoint of she (Union) was shooting her show Being Mary Jane, going most of the year. I was dealing with my injuries, trying to win a championship, so we kinda took a step back."

Gabrielle wrote:

"To say I was devastated is to pick a word on a low shelf for convenience."

She continued:

"The experience of Dwyane having a baby so easily — while I was unable to — left my soul broken into pieces and shattered into fine dust scattering in the wind."

Union has publically admitted to having many miscarriages and struggles with having a child.

Thankfully, all things worked out for the power couple. Wade and Union got married one year after the scandal in Miami, Florida, on August 30, 2014.
