Gabrielle Union displays an infectious smile as one of the three cover girls of Redbook Magazine’s October issue. Union, along with “Dancing With the Stars” host Erin Andrews and E! anchor Maria Menounos talk “Making It Happen” by battling the pressure to have children while at the peak of their careers.
The 42-year-old actress has starred in box office phenoms and television hits, is the style crush of many and is married to NBA star Dwayne Wade.
On starting a family with hubby D.Wade, she told Redbook:
So far, it has not happened for us. A lot of my friends deal with this. There’s a certain amount of shame that is placed on women who have perhaps chosen a career over starting a family younger. The penance for being a career woman is barrenness. You feel like you’re wearing a scarlet letter.
Season three of “Being Mary Jane” premieres October 20. Until then, click through to see photos of Gabrielle Union’s spread for Redbook Magazine’s October cover story.
