Gabrielle Union is an example to working moms: she’s currently filming her upcoming series while basking in the joy of motherhood thanks to her first daughter, Kaavia James. The actress recently took to Instagram to share an adorable pic with the baby, revealing she’s a “fulltime mama.”
Gabby Union is currently filming her upcoming action series, “L.A Finests,” alongside Jessica Alba, but that hasn’t gotten in the way of her bonding time with baby girl Kaavia James.
The dotting mom turned her trailer into a nursery following Alba’s advice, and her 3-months-old baby is already familiar with the filming set and all it involves.
Kaavia has been pictured with Union on her breaks from filming, and Gabby recently melted hearts with a new Instagram pic holding her sleepy girl on her chest with a carrier. The pretty mom posed in front of some palms, donning a cream-colored sweater and with her loose strands blowing into the wind.
“Part-time action hero. Fulltime mama. @kaaviajames,” Union captioned the post.
Fans took over the comment section to gush about the mother-daughter duo. “Kudos to you my role model. You are doing great as a mum,” wrote one user.
Another added, “No script involved, but for sure the best role you’ll ever play! Congrats mama!” and a third one chimed in to say:
“A mother is another name for an action hero.”
Union and her husband, Dwayne Wade, welcomed Kaavia through a surrogate last November.
The “Being Mary Jane” star had been open about her struggled with infertility and the fact that she suffered eight or nine miscarriages before finally giving surrogacy a chance. Now, the 45-year-old couldn’t be happier with her decision and her “shady baby.”
And although she’s playing a “hero” on “L.A Finest,” which is a “Bad Boys” spin-off, the production of the series had to be put on hold last Wednesday after an accident left two injured people on the filming set.
According to Deadline, Lt. Philip Heem of the Los Angeles Port Police, confirmed that there was an accident at Warehouse One at the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro. The two injured people were executive producers/co-showrunners Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier.
Sources told the publication about the incident that:
“It involved a stunt car that crashed into a cargo crate. The container and/or the car then smashed into the video village – an area where the producers and director can watch the scene on monitors – that had been set up behind the crate.”
Filming and production were put on pause and is not clear when the season will be completed.
Neither Union or Alba have addressed the situation.
