The celebrity baby boom of 2018 has no plans of slowing down! On Thursday, Gabrielle Union revealed that she Dwyane Wade were new parents of a baby girl, born via surrogate on Wednesday.

The actress posted two sweet images to Instagram showing a glimpse of their bundle of joy, cradled in their arms atop a hospital bed. She captioned the pictures with the lyrics to the song "Sunshine" writing, "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." She continued, calling their daughter a "miracle baby."

"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! #onelastdance #skintoskin," Union wrote. Wade shared the same pictures and caption to his social media.

The new parents have yet to share their baby's name.

Union, 46, has been incredibly open about her journey to have a child with the NBA star, revealing last year in her memoir that she has had "eight or nine miscarriages."

“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,” Union wrote, per People.

Despite the fertility struggles, Union wrote that she and Wade "remain bursting with love and ready to do anything to meet the child we’ve both dreamed of.”

Union and Wade were married in 2014 in a star-studded affair. The couple are currently raising Wade's nephew as well as two sons from a previous marriage (Wade's third son lives with his mother).

Earlier this year, the basketball player spoke with Entertainment Tonight about how he and Union's marriage stays strong despite their busy careers and the ups-and-downs of life. "I think the biggest thing with me and my wife—what we’ve always tried to do in our short period of time, especially being married—is just to stay in constant communication with each other, try to support each other in everything. And it’s tough at times.”

We're sure a newborn will make things even tougher, but we have a feeling this pair is more than ready for the challenge. Congrats to the happy couple!
