"She Teaches Me So Much"

Gabrielle Union is a doting mom! The actress took to Instagram this past weekend to share some adorable photos of her baby girl, Kaavia James Union Wade.


In one such photo, Kaavia can be seen sticking out her tongue just like her mom. “We bout that life,” Gabrielle told her Instagram fans. “She teaches me so much,” the celebrity mom added. Another picture shows Gabrielle and Kaavia dressed and ready for Sunday fun. “That smile is everything,” one fan said of Kaavia’s expression of happiness.

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s daughter is dubbed as Shady Baby because of her many expressions that, when coupled with her mother’s captions, are nothing short of hilarious. One recent photo of Kaavia is of the little one sticking out her tongue while giving the camera a serious look. “If [you] WANT your music executives all up in your videos, come to #ShadyBaby records,” Gabrielle captioned. “Westside until I teethe and then all bets are off, I’ll claim whoever got the teething ring.”

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade welcomed their daughter on November 7, 2018. The couple shared the emotional moments that led up to their surrogate giving birth days after little Kaavia’s arrival. Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade delved into why they went the way of surrogacy for their daughter’s birth.

“It wasn’t actually the problem of getting pregnant, it was holding the baby,” Gabrielle shared. “We discovered finally what I have is called adenomyosis,” the celebrity mom explained. “We just decided as a family that the best and safest route and [the] most successful route was a gestational carrier. For us, it was our embryo so our surrogate has no genetic tie to our baby.”

What is next for Shady Baby? Stay tuned to find out!
