Kaavia James Union Wade. That is the name that Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade have bestowed upon their newborn baby girl. The celebrity couple shared the identity of their little one in the cutest way.
Dwyane shared a picture of himself getting two tattoos with his Instagram fans. “#TBT Goes back to that one night in China when I decided to get my daughters name tattooed on me. Kaavia James Union Wade,” Dwyane captioned underneath the picture.
More than 500,000 of Dwyane Wade’s social media followers liked the name he and Gabrielle Union selected for their daughter. “I once heard you say you’ll never get tattoos,” one of Dwyane’s fans noted. “You said, ‘How do [you] think a tattoo will look when you get in your 70’s?’ A baby girl changed your mind.” Babies have a way of altering perspectives.
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade welcomed their daughter on November 7, 2018. Many fans were both shocked and thrilled to learn of the Wade family’s expansion since Gabrielle and Dwyane went the route of secrecy regarding their plans to choose a surrogate to carry their daughter for nine months.
Gabrielle Union previously opened up about her fertility struggles that led to eight or nine miscarriages. “I didn’t know there was going to be any problems, and there was,” Gabrielle said during an interview with Dr. Oz. “I was always having these early miscarriages; some from IVF and some naturally,” she added.
“The first one was the most brutal because we told people and we were so excited,” Union recalled. “You dream of this moment, and those dreams were just crushed. And then, [the miscariages] just happened in sort of rapid succession over the next few years.”
It seems that perseverance goes far. Kaavia is Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s first child together. Dwyane Wade has four kids in all.
