Gabrielle Union's Motherhood Fears

Gabrielle Union has spoken of her fears ahead of her daughter Kaavia's birth last year.

The actress welcomed her daughter via surrogate mother with her husband Dwayne Wade in November 2018. Reflecting on her emotions at the time while celebrating the tot's first birthday, she admitted to being terrified in those first few weeks and months.

Alongside a slideshow of pictures of Kaavia set to 'Lovely Day' by Bill Withers, Gabrielle wrote: "Scared to hold you. Scared to burp you. Scared to reveal I have no clue what I'm doing. Scared to go to work. Scared to stay home. Scared when you sleep. Scared when you wake up. Scared I'm not living up to some impossible standard of motherhood. Scared I'd lose myself. Scared I'd be exposed as a failure, as less than, not as good as, not as comfortable as, not as... anything."

Despite her initial reservations, Gabrielle believed her daughter has taught her to let go of fear and live in the moment. She wrote: "But there you were, everyday, looking up at me, like 'gurl, you got this!' When I let go of my fears of judgement and just did my best and recognized that my best would and could change from day to day and life would magically go on... Man, I finally allowed myself to just enjoy you @kaaviajames and relax into the peace of imperfection. 1 year in and your whole village stays smiling. The family you know and all the cyber aunties and uncles you may never meet, we celebrate you."
