Gabrielle Union and more celebrity parents have released picture books for children.
The Bring It On actress released her debut book, Welcome to the Party, in May 2020 to celebrate non-traditional families.
Union, who shares daughter Kaavia with husband Dwyane Wade, said during a Today show appearance at the time: “I know I’m definitely not alone in that our [surrogacy] journey was just paved with a lot of heartbreak and pain. By the time she arrived, there was so much anticipation in our family, our larger family, and our community. We just wanted to have a celebration.”
Union and the basketball star, who is also dad to three older children from past relationships, used a gestational carrier after dealing with fertility struggles. Welcome to the Party was Union’s way to teach children born in different circumstances that they are “loved and welcomed and wanted and celebrated.”
