Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade were ready for their close-up shots this past weekend. The celebrity parents posed alongside their daughters, Zaya and Kaavia James, in what turned out to be a fierce and funny impromptu photoshoot.


“Us,” Gabrielle Union said of a picture that featured her with her husband and kids. “I’m hollering,” one fan said in response to Kaav’s face in the photo. “That baby’s face is saying she’s got other things to do than take pictures with y’all.” Another social media follower wrote, “She has the same face in all the pics.”

Kaavia later changed her outfit and actually smiled for a second set of photos. “Also us. @kaaviajames was not going out like that and did a wardrobe change on us,” Gabrielle union wrote.

Zaya’s Gucci outfit was especially amazing. “This outfit gave me life,” the teen shared with her Instagram fans. “I loved the power I felt when wearing this,” Zaya said. “Thank you so much @thomaschristos, @larryjarahsims, and @tashareikobrown for making me look stunning as always.”

Zaya may still be in celebration mode as one who commemorated her fourteenth birthday on May 29, 2021. The teen had an incredible party that included Tia Mowry and her family.

“Happy 14th to me,” Zaya shared on her Instagram timeline. “I had such a fun birthday,” the teen wrote online. “I love all of you guys, and thank you all for the love and support!”

Zaya’s older brother, Zaire Wade, also commemorated his sister’s birthday on Instagram. “I’ll always be here to love and protect you, through thick and thin,” Zaire wrote online. “You got a brother in me 5L no matter what and Imma (sic) make sure as you get older you understand that. I love you kid. Happy g-day @zayawade. Continue to inspire and persevere through all! We got your back on this side Zaya.”

Zaya is the youngest of Dwyane Wade’s children with his first wife, Siovaughn Funches. The celebrity father has four kids – Zaya, Zaire, Xavier, and Kaavia James – in all.
