"Beyond Grateful"

Gabrielle Union celebrated her fiftieth birthday with family and friends by her side. Kaavia James was her mom’s biggest fan during the festivities.


“I am that girl,” Kaav wrote in a social media post shared on her Instagram page. “You can’t tell #tanzania Kaav nuthin’,” the youngster exclaimed in her post. “Maybe it’s jet lag, but the cuteness is a close 2nd,” the youngster added.

Kaav was filmed while giving her mom a big hug during Gabrielle Union’s birthday celebration. The youngster ran to meet her mom who arrived at the festivities with her husband, Dwyane Wade. “Endless energy and adorableness,” one fan said of Kaavia’s excitement in the video clip. “Kaavia, you are such a dream girl,” another social media follower exclaimed.

Gabrielle Union rang in her fiftieth birthday on Saturday (Oct. 29). The actress traveled to Tanzania with her family to commemorate her special day.

“I’m still processing the level of effort and planning that went into pulling off such an unbelievable 50th birthday party in Zanzibar Tanzania,” Gabrielle said of the events of the night. “I’m beyond grateful for all of my loved ones who flew around the world to celebrate with me,” Union said of the gathering.

“How @dwyanewade @ronndarocksevents @dauniedaune got THE @lisalisall77 to come all this way to perform was unreal,” Gabrielle went on to tell her fans. “Thank you Lisa for being so amazing to my Mom and reminding me that your childhood heroes can turn out to be as lovely as you imagined them. I’m just floating on gratitude and to know this is just our first stop on the #wadeworldtour2022 Edition. I’m the happiest seasoned gal around.”

Kaavia James is Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s only child together. Dwyane also has two sons, Zaire and Xavier, and a daughter named Zaya from previous relations. Kaavia celebrates her fourth birthday next month.
