The couple, who married in August 201
Union was openly open to their struggles to get pregnant in the past and recently joined in their fight Adenomyosis, a form of endometriosis at the BlogHer conference in New York in August.
"Toward the end of my fertility journey, I finally got some answers," she said at the Essence event. "You are a career woman, you have prioritized your career, you have waited too long, and now you are just too old to have a child – and that's up to you if you want a career." The reality is that I actually have adenomyosis. "
" The gag is, I had it in my early twenties, "she continued. "Instead of diagnosing me, [doctors] was like this:" Oh, you have nine or ten days left and bleed through nocturnal pads … maybe there's something more. Every doctor I saw was like, "Let me put on birth control."
Union shared her heartbreaking fertility battles in her memoirs, We will need more wine which was published last fall.
"I had eight or nine miscarriages," she wrote in the book. "For three years, my body has been a prisoner trying to get pregnant, and I was either about to embark on an IVF cycle in the middle of an IVF cycle or to get out of an IVF cycle."  More information can be found in the video below.
