Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade sure know how to have fun. The celebrity parents threw a tailgate welcome party in honor of their daughter Kaavia James Union Wade’s 1-month-old milestone this past weekend.
For those who are unaware, a tailgate party is a social event in which the tailgate of a vehicle is the central point of gathering. Large parties use several trucks to convey the point while smaller events can typically stress the theme with only a few open tailgates.
Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union’s bash was definitely along the lines of epic. The celebrity couple had a marching bands and baton twirlers at their event.
Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union welcomed their daughter several weeks ago to the surprise of many. Kaavia James Union Wade was born via surrogate and received by her mother, who was dressed in a hospital gown that allowed Gabrielle to give her newborn skin-to-skin love.
Some criticized Gabrielle Union for wearing a hospital gown and, by their claims, having the appearance of someone who had given birth herself. The celebrity mom, however, did not let the trolls steal her joy.

Cant stop, won't stop. [email protected] ?❤???? Here's a guide for happily enjoying my posts of our family. Trust that she is surrounded by medical and child care specialists. Know she is safe and watched closely at all times. Trust that I won't post anything that puts my child in danger or opens me up to unsolicited online medical or parenting opinions ? @kaaviajames is loved. She will be kissed. She will be loved on by the people that love her. She will be safe. If and when I have questions (as a new mom I have tons) I will not hesitate to ask my online community for help and suggestions. But yall have never known me to hold my tongue so trust that I will ask for help. Sometimes publicly and sometimes privately. Its OK that every parent does things differently to suit their child's needs. Every solution that works or worked for you may or may not work for me or my family or other folks. And that's absolutely OK. If someone does things differently or does not take your advise or that advise doesnt pan out the way it did for you, that is NO indication that you are wrong or a bad parent. We all figure out what works for us, our children and our families. We dont all have to match. It's ok to break from the norm and do what's healthiest and safest for your child. No one is in your house or your family but YOU. We dont all need to be clones of each other to be doing OK. The goal is for us all to have happy healthy families and that journey looks different for every family. Let's embrace that. Let's get comfortable with that. Someone doing something different than us does not make us bad people or bad parents. Breathe and enjoy. There will be no mommy shaming on this page. I rebuke mommy shaming. For those STILLLLL clinging onto your fears about Kaav's breathing and or whether my sweet kisses harmed my kid…feel free to swipe.
“Can’t stop, won’t stop,” Gabrielle shared in a recent Instagram post. “She will be kissed,” Union wrote online. “She will be loved on by the people that love her. She will be safe.”
Kaavia Jame Union Wade is Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s only child together. The celebrity couple parents four kids in all.
