Gabby Union steals hearts with new photo of daughter wearing pink tutu & pointing her 'lil' foot'
Gabrielle Union is melting hearts all over social media with a new pic of her “miracle baby,” Kaavia James, as she points her little foot like a proper ballerina.
Union and her husband, Dwyane Wade, are still on a cloud after the birth of their first daughter last November. The adorable tot has taken front and center on both of her parents’ social media accounts, despite having her page at only three-months-old.
In one of the most recent pics shared by Gabrielle on Instagram, the happy mom basks in the joy of motherhood as she holds her baby in her lap while sitting on a stone step.
Union was wearing a gray top, jeans, and black boots, while Kaavia, standing on her mom’s legs and pointing her right foot, rocked a pink tutu with a gray top.
“When she pointed that lil foot. My [heart] exploded.#setbaby @kaaviajames,” Union captioned the photo.
Fans immediately filled the comment section to gush about the little girl and her cuteness, with most debating whether she looks like Gabby or Dwyane.
“@dee_5163: So cute you and your little Mini-Me. She’s your twin.”
“@bygl_: She is a serious little cookie like @dwyanewade she looks just like daddy! #beyondadorable.”
“@bellfreedia: Awww that is so awesome a black ballerina powerful.”
Union has been open about her struggles with infertility for a long time, even before Kaavia’s birth through surrogate was announced to the world. The “Being Mary Jane” calls Kaavia her “miracle baby” and says having her was a dream come true.
“She brings us all the joy we could have ever imagined, but there’s this extra layer. She is dreams fulfilled,” the proud mom told Today Parents. “She is the living embodiment of not giving up. I never thought this little girl could represent so much.”
Union and Wade are planning on raising their girl to follow after her own goals with the same resilience they have followed theirs. “I hope she cannonballs into her dreams and causes a big splash,” Union said. And continued:
“I hope she's not afraid of taking any leap and that she knows she is supported, loved, protected and encouraged. We’re her cheerleaders, here to pass out Gatorade and give her a high five.”
And to other parents who are going through fertility issues and are afraid or embarrassed to seek help, Union has one message for them: “You are not defective. You are part of a very, very, very large community that understands every step you have been through. There is hope.”
