While Dwyane, Parker, and Adam were reeling with laughter, little Kaavia refused to budge at Shaq's jocular attempts. In the end, Candace was the only one able to break the "Shady Baby's" resistance as she did a rendition of "Baby Shark," which provoked a smile from Kaavia.

People Magazine once got Kaavia's mom, Gabrielle Union, to give her take on the little one's "Shady Baby" personality.

Despite being the shade queen, Kaavia has got her happy moments. Atlanta Black shares one of Kaavia's rare laughing moments where her mom shared a video of the little girl in a bouncer, showing off a broad toothless smile.

While some fans were elated at seeing her smile, others yearned for the return of the  "shady baby" looks.

As reported by People, the former AGT star got inspired by her little daughter, which led her to launch a babywear line, "Kaavi James By Gabrielle Union." At the time of opening, the celebrity mom had a host of polka dots outfits, striped unisex fittings, and onesies, among others,  ready for grabs by the public.
