Gabrielle Union pulled off mommy duties earlier this week as she hung out with her daughter Kaavia and stepson Zion. From the photos shared via social media, it appears everyone had a good time.


Gabrielle is a superstar actress, but that doesn’t stop her from attending to the thing that matters most: parenting. The Nebraska native has proved time and time again that the children come first.

In a recent Instagram post, Gabrielle posed for some family photos with her one-year-old daughter Kaavia and Zion, who turned 12 in May.

For all her parenting wisdom, however, Gabrielle is just like the average parent out there, raising kids with the constant fear of messing things up.

"Perfect Sunday," captioned the doting mom whose captivating smile lit up both snapshots.



Zion is the son of Gabrielle's husband, Dwyane Wade, with his ex-wife, Siohvaughn Funches. In recent times, the pre-teen has been the target of online trolls, especially as regards his sexuality.

Gabrielle, 47, and Dwyane, 37, have made it clear that they will continue to support their son. In April, the entire family, save for Dwyane, who was at a game, turned up to support Zion at the Miami Beach Pride Parade.



Last month, Gabrielle also came to her family's defense after social media users seemed to object at Dwyane using a feminine description for Zion.

The retired NBA player had shared a photo of Zion, Gabrielle, and Kaavia with the caption "my girls," sparking controversy yet again concerning the topic.

When a Twitter user reposted the image, asking for thoughts, Gabrielle wasted no time offering a swift response. "Looks like love to me. I truly hope that everyone gets the love, support, and hugs they deserve," she said.



In June, Dwyane emphasized in a Variety interview that he would always support Zion no matter what:

"I don’t really talk about it much because it’s Zion’s story to tell. I think as a family, we should support each other. That’s our job. And my job as a father is to facilitate their lives and to support them and be behind them in whatever they want to do."



Gabrielle said as much in a recent Baller Alert interview, proving that the couple’s united front is no façade. The "LA’s Finest" star encouraged parents to "lead with love," even if it turns out "your children aren’t exactly like you."

For all her parenting wisdom, however, Gabrielle is just like the average parent out there, raising kids with the constant fear of messing things up.



The "Bring It On" star showed off that side of herself earlier this month in an emotional tribute penned to celebrate Kaavia’s first birthday.

Gabrielle and Dwyane welcomed their daughter on November 7, 2018, via surrogacy. Before then, the actress had suffered at least eight miscarriages in a bid to conceive her child.



Gabrielle previously opened up about how difficult it was to let go and allow another woman carry her child, but her recent epistle showed things might have been tougher afterward.

"Scared to hold you. Scared to burp you. Scared to reveal I have no clue what I'm doing," she confessed alongside a montage of Kaavia’s photos through the months set to Bill Withers' "Lovely Day."

Gabrielle later revealed that it was Kaavia who provided confidence for her to enjoy motherhood.

"Man, I finally allowed myself to just enjoy you @kaaviajames and relax into the peace of imperfection," Gabrielle confessed. "1 year in, and your whole village stays smiling."
