The couple tried to get pregnant for a long time, but that did not work. The 46-year-old Gabrielle received nine miscarriages and talked openly about the struggle she had to deliver. In her book We’re Going To Need More Wine she wrote that her body was “a prisoner of trying to get pregnant” for 3 years. In the end, the new parents opted for a different path, which did bring them great happiness.
