    Congrats! The Wades have welcomed a "miracle baby" girl into the world.

    Miami Heat star Dwayne Wade and wife actress Gabrielle Union both made the announcement of their special delivery on Instagram, captioned with the lyrics to Bill Wither’s classic hit, Lovely Day.

    The couple posted several photos on their respective accounts showing them cradling the newborn. 

    The news came as a surprise to many because the star had not been pregnant. The baby girl was born Wednesday night “via surrogate,” according to Union’s Instagram post.

    The "Being Mary Jane" star made headlines last October after revealing she suffered through "eight or nine miscarriages" in her new book, "We’re Going to Need More Wine." The couple had been trying to conceive for several years, with Union undergoing cycle after cycle of in vitro fertilization.

    Celebs took to social media to send their congratulations to the couple.

    "After a very painful journey trying to conceive, @itsgabrielleu finally got her happy ending thanks to the gift of life that a surrogate was able to bless her family with," tweeted Perez Hilton.

    "Gab!!!!! Yes!!!!!! Congrats, hun! I'm overjoyed for you! Welcome, sweet baby girl!"congratulated fellow actress Yvette Nicole Brown along with several heart emojis.

    This is Union's first child, but Wade has three children from previous relationships.
