"Come As You Are"

The holidays are looking beautiful in the Wade household. Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade recently orchestrated a photo session that included nearly everyone in the family.


Kaavia James certainly made her presence known with a red sweater with matching boots. The youngest member of the family sat in the middle of her family and gave the camera a smile for the group shot. Kaavia was also photographed while walking around the house with her purse on her shoulders. The youngster did not look at the camera in one shot but rather proceeded to move about in the house. “Come as you are,” Dwyane Wade captioned underneath a candid of him and the family.

All members with the exception of Dwyane’s youngest son, Xavier, were present for the family’s photo session. It was just a few weeks ago that Dwyane celebrated his son’s birthday along with Xavier’s mom, Aja Metoyer. The party was a small gathering due to coronavirus restrictions. Xavier, however had a blast at his birthday bash.

Some may remember when the news of Xavier’s birth broke into mainstream media. Dwyane Wade was engaged to Gabrielle Union at the time and admitted that he stepped out on the relationship with Aja Metoyer.

“I had a child with someone else and I had to tell her,” Dwyane recently said of his thoughts when gearing up to break the news of his infidelity to Gabrielle. “Hardest thing I’ve ever had to do is man up and tell Gabrielle Union that I’ve had a child with somebody else,” the celebrity father shared. “I couldn’t sleep. I wasn’t eating.”

Dwyane further explained, “When you hold something in that you know is going to come out and you have this information and you know it’s gonna f**k somebody’s life up, that you care about, that you love, if it don’t hurt you, then you’re not human. … Me and Gab just went through something that you never want to go through and we still came out of it.”

Kaavia James is Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s only child together. Zaya and Zion Wade are Dwyane’s kids from his first marriage to Siovaugh Funches. Stay tuned for more Wade family news!
