"We Will Win"

Kaavia James Union Wade, a.k.a. Shady Baby, has had enough! The daughter of Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union recently had an epic meltdown, which serves as a guide for other toddlers who are looking to do the same.


The video clip of Kaavia throwing a tantrum was uploaded to her Instagram account on Tuesday (May 19). The phone that Shady Baby threw around the room was already broken, thankfully. That did not stop her, however, from having a full-blown fit.

“Toddler Tantrum Mixtape Volume 1.5,” the caption underneath Kaavia’s post read. “I understand I’m new to the game, but boy have I mastered tantrums in the week that I’ve really put my all into learning my craft.”

Kaavia’s post went on to read, “The art of the tantrum is a dish best served cold. Just when their breathing has returned to normal. You go for it. The big people will pretend to ignore you. They can’t.”

“They will act like nothing is happening. Inside they are crumbling. We’ve got them on the ropes, do not let up. Let this highlight reel of my phone tosses inspire you. Oh I know this phone is broken, that’s why they gave it to me. Also why I toss it with all I’ve got to give. We will win.”

Shady Baby has been running the Wade household since birth. Gabrielle Union recently revealed that her daughter is loads of fun when the matter of The Fruit Snack Challenge was presented during an interview with E! News. Those who saw Kaavia fail the challenge got a good laugh.

“It was more of, how long could she wait,” Gabrielle told the press. “She loves to eat,” Union continued. “And she eats really anything. But she’d never had a fruit snack, so we had to come up with a different snack and she loves her Bitsy’s.”

The celebrity mom went on to tell E! News, “I was just curious, would she let me get around the corner? Would it be as soon as I walked away? It was more surprising like her facial reactions,” Gabrielle said. “She ate, she grabbed a fistful and then turned around. When I came back in the frame, she was like, ‘Maybe you ate the Bitsy!’ She’s just pure comedy.”

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