"We Don't Need Much To Have Fun"

What has Kaavia James been up to as of late? Big things! Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s daughter has been reading about herself while also getting acquainted with boxes.

“Shirley let me play with her favorite toy she got for Christmas,” the caption underneath a candid of Kaavia hanging out in a box from Christmas read. “My mama said Shirley’s mama is a genius,” the post read.


“We don’t need much to have fun,” one fan said. Another social media follower wrote, “All kids love boxes. My kids played in the boxes and didn’t play with the toys.” It’s the simple things!

Kaavia James has also been spending quality time with her mom. In fact, the youngster was recently photographed while enjoying storytime with her mom. The session was extra special because Kaavia got to read about herself in It’s Fancy To Be Kaavia James. Imagine having a book about yourself!

Gabrielle Union has kept conversations about motherhood honest ever since welcoming her daughter. The celebrity mom discussed her journey to motherhood during an interview with Parents last year, which included more than eight miscarriages and failed IVF treatments. Gabrielle and her husband, Dwyane Wade, ultimately decided to expand their family by way of a surrogate. The couple welcomed Kaavia James Union Wade in November 2018.

“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,” Union told the publication. “She represents that maybe there is a light at the end. 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!”
