Gabrielle Union shares touching pic of husband Dwyane Wade holding newborn daughter
Gabrielle Union, the actress best known for “Being Mary Jane,” took to Instagram to share a photo of her husband, NBA player Dwyane Wade, holding their daughter, Kaavia James.
In the image, the man appeared sitting on a white chair with no shirt on holding Kaavia in his arms. The baby’s face was not visible, but it was clear that she was wearing a pink beanie hat.
One of the highlights of the picture was that the NBA player was feeding Kaavia, sharing a very touching father-and-daughter moment. In the caption, the proud mother wrote, “daddy’s girl.”
THE BIRTH OF THE GIRL
Gabrielle and Dwyane welcomed their little bundle of joy on November 7 after years of trying to conceive. Their “miracle baby” was born via surrogate. Gabrielle suffered multiple miscarriages and failed IVF attempts in the past. This prompted the couple to turn to surrogacy.
After the birth of their first child, the couple shared identical announcements on their social media accounts. The post featured three photos of the family at the hospital accompanied by a message introduced by lyrics from the song, “Lovely Day.”
“We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that, our miracle baby, arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days. Welcome to the party sweet girl! [sic],” they wrote in the caption.
TALKING ABOUT THE BABY’S NAME
While the birth of the baby was a big milestone in the couple’s life, several people have wondered why they chose “James” as her middle name. Some said that it was because of NBA player LeBron James, but Gabrielle took to Instagram to tell the truth.
“Great question. We wanted my family represented in her name. My godfather is my Uncle James Glass. She is named after him.. and then Union… that’s… ya know… me [sic],” revealed the actress.
TALKING TO OPRAH
Recently, the couple and Kaavia were in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, who visited them to know their “new bundle of joy.” Even though the conversation will air on December 8, the photos they uploaded set clear that they had a lot of fun.
“From the Bottle to the Bassinet... No New Friends. Crew. Tight. So excited to share what we have been working on with [Oprah] & [Kaavia] Oprah at Home with Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade & Their New Baby,” wrote Gabrielle in the caption.
Apart from Kaavia, Gabrielle is the step-mother to Dwyane's three sons named Zaire, Zion, and Xavier.
