"My Parents Forgot"

Kaavia James Union Wade, a.k.a. Shady Baby, is 11-months-old today. Gabrielle Union uploaded pictures to celebrate her and Dwyane Wade’s baby girl earlier this week.


“Soooo you’re telling me I turned 11 months old yesterday and my parents forgot,” a caption underneath pictures of Kaavia read. “Someone get Molly Ringwald on the phone. She gets me,” the note concluded.

More than 100,000 fans liked the photo series of Shady Baby. “She’s almost one,” a loyal follower shared. “I’m not ready.” Another fan wrote, “This outfit is fire.” Kaavia is definitely dressed from top to bottom in these candids.

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade welcomed their daughter last November. The celebrity mom shared the joys of motherhood during a recent interview with Parents.

“I felt such relief,” Union said of her daughter’s birth. “To hear her breathing and crying was a dream,” the celebrity mom added. “We didn’t really allow ourselves to believe it until then.”

Gabrielle and Dwyane endured much heartache while trying to expand their family. “There was a lot of pain, and a lot of disappointment,” the celebrity mom told Parents. “Kaavia really is the personification of hope for a lot of people like us, who maybe didn’t have a lot to be hopeful about,” the celebrity mom added.

“She represents that maybe there is a light at the end,” Union continued. “And when you take people on the low points of your journey, it’s cool to let them be part of the joy. Plus, she’s really cute. And has an uncanny ability for making steely eye contact!”

Kaavia James Union Wade is Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s only child together. The couple parents four kids in all. Stay tuned for more celebrity family news!
