– Was there a time
where you wanted to– obviously, before even eight
or nine– just give up? No.
OPRAH: No. Never? I’m one of those people that– I failed at all kinds
of things, repeatedly. I’ve just always
been of the mindset– because this is what people
tell you– you work hard, you do the right things,
you’re a good person, it will happen for you. Eventually. Maybe not the first
couple of times, but– But eight or nine, you
might want to listen. GABRIELLE UNION: You’d think.
– Yes. But I was– I could not let go of
this idea of creating this life within me. That I could feel
that tied me to him, that he could be a part of, that
the world could be a part of. I’m not letting myself
and all these people down. I need to have this. I need to be pregnant for
everybody, including myself. But let me share
something with you. As we’re going
through this process, though, I’m watching my wife,
who, I know all these things and I want this for us,
and I want this for her. But I’m watching her
do things to her body, to herself, that it’s
getting to the point where it’s not healthy. And as I always told
her, I want this baby just as much as you do. But I married you. And you are the most
important thing to me. So it came to a point
where, you know, I started to feel a
certain way about that. Because I didn’t want
some to happen to her. And it was getting dangerous.
You know? See, we were trying
so much, and so many things, and so many
different methods. And it was getting dangerous,
and I was getting nervous.
