*Gabrielle Union has created her vision board for the year, and among her bucket list items for the coming months is a positive pregnancy test.
“Some of the pictures on my first one (vision board) were of a haircare line, Kenya, and a Clearblue pregnancy test,” she tells Redbook magazine. “As goals manifest, I’ve been able to look at my boards and say, ‘Damn, I put in a lot of work and deserve it’.
“That’s helped me to stop feeling suspicious of joy (and) to not sabotage something before I’ve had a chance to do it because I assume I’ll be rejected.”
Union, wife of NBA star Dwyane Wade since 2014, says she begins every year by creating a vision board full of images of things she wants to achieve, visit, create or enjoy throughout the next 12 months. But there are a few 2017 holdovers on the current board that have yet to be checked off.
“The only things that have not come to pass are a cosmetics line, Machu Picchu (ancient site in Peru), and a baby. I’ve had the positive stick, but also a number of miscarriages, so maybe I just have to go more specific and show a woman with a human being traveling through her orifices. I’ll put those things back on this year’s board and see what happens.”
Meanwhile, Union is stepmom to basketball Wade’s children from his first marriage to Siohvaughn Funches. Wade also raises a nephew, Dahveon, who is the son of his sister Deanna and has a four-year-old son from his romance with longtime friend Aja Metoyer.
Wade and Union have been dating on and off since 2009.
