Gabrielle must have been shocked to learn that her fiance, Dwyane, reportedly fathered a baby boy with a mystery woman while they were broken up. But the gorgeous actress took to Twitter on Dec. 30 to reveal the reason why she’s not going to let the unexpected news tear their relationship apart.
Poor Gabrielle Union! Less than two weeks after she and Dwyane Wade announced their engagement on Dec. 20, a new report is claiming that the Miami Heat guard impregnated another woman he has known “for many years” while the couple were on a break. Gabrielle is probably so overwhelmed right now, but her inspiring new tweet shows that she is rising to the occasion and turning this obstacle into an opportunity to build up her inner strength. “U never lose when u work on yourself,” she says.
