Kaavia James Union Wade a.k.a ‘Shady Baby’ has one million followers at just one year old! The daughter of Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade celebrated the milestone on November 25th, 2019 by thanking her fans on her social media page. “A Million followers!!! It was only yesterday I was on that goats milk ish… lookat ya girl now. Drinkin juice boxes and everythang,” a caption on her page read.


Born on November 7, 2018, Kaavia is wise beyond her age. The tiny tot may not know how to speak out all the knowledge she has just yet, but her mom is able to do that for her.

Gabrielle Union is indeed the voice behind her daughter’s #ShadyBaby Instagram account. Dwyane Wade tells PEOPLE that his wife restricted his right to post on Kaavia James’ page.

“I did one caption and my wife was like, ‘Never again. Don’t ever touch it again,’” Wade said. The celebrity father admits that his baby girl has his “wife’s personality with my facial expressions.”

Obviously, fans are loving #Shadybaby’s personality and facial expressions and so are we! Below we list just a few reasons why we love Kaavia a.k.a ‘Shady Baby’.

She is a loving little sister

Kaavia has three older brothers whom she loves. Over the past few months, Kaavia’s youngest brother, Zion Wade, has been bullied online for transitioning into a female.

“Not all heroes wear capes,” Kaavia reminds her followers in a November Instagram post.

 She is a foodie like some of us

Kaavia loves food, especially chicken. “See, y’all leave too much meat on the bone. Not me. Marrow or bust.”

 She throws shade even on her parents’ birthdays

Kaavia often pokes fun at her parents. When her mom turned 47 on October 29th, Kaavia ‘remarked’ on her Instagram: “Wait… My mama HOW old?!?! How old y’all mamas cuz mine always complaining bout her hip”

And for Her Dad’s Birthday…..

“@dwyanewade asked me if he was thinning up top. Told him those juices and berries was working! I lied, but it’s the old man’s birthday. Happy Birthday OG.”
