Gabrielle Union and her daughter, Kaavia James Union Wade, are a matching pair. The L.A.’s Finest star recently shared candids of her little one wearing a dress that was identical to her mom’s attire.


“Never thought I’d be the chick that lives for a #twinningwithmommy moment but here I am,” Gabrielle told her social media fans. “And I love it,” Union shared with her Instagram followers.

Kaavia James has been quite busy with creative products from KiwiCo. “It’s a miracle,” Gabrielle Union said of her daughter’s love for the toys. “We found something to keep Kaav entertained that isn’t a mirror or a cell phone,” Union shared with her fans. “@kiwico_inc is a monthly subscription crate that includes super cool hands-on projects and toys designed to expose kids to concepts in STEAM.”

It seems Gabrielle Union and her husband, Dwyane Wade, are actively getting Kaav ready for school. It was just a few weeks ago that Kaavia commemorated her second birthday with her family by her side.

“The light of our lives,” Gabrielle told her social media fans. “The spark to our joy in dark times. The giggler of farts. The eater of all the food. The dancer to the jams. The smart, funny, adventurous, cutie that gave us a different kind of purpose. We love you so much. Happy Birthday, baby girl.”

Dwyane Wade also took to Instagram to celebrate his daughter on her birthday. “November 7th was always a special day in my life because it’s my Mothers birthday but now it’s times that special,” the celebrity father said. “Happy 2nd Birthday to my BOSS @kaaviajames, a.k.a Shady baby, a.k.a 2020 Meme Mood. Thank you for providing laughter and joy to our lives and so many other families!”

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