In Kaavia's newest post, she shared a picture of herself wearing a black swimsuit, which has a silver star crested on it. She matched her look with dark goggles and brown Ugg boots. 

The adorable Kaavia who seemed to be enjoying the Sun sat on a white beach chair. The caption to the little tot's post read: 

"Avengers Startgame mount up! We doze off at naptime." 


Kaavia is popularly known as the "Shady Baby" on the internet, all thanks to her funny faces, and lived up to that billing when she made a cameo appearance on a special live stream episode of "NBA on TNT.

The show had Shaquille O'Neal, Dwyane Wade, Candace Parker of L.A Sparks, and "Bleacher Report" host, Adam Lefkoe, discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the NBA. 

The proud mom shared pictures of Kaavia during her bath time that showed the toddler playing in the bubbles.


Kaavia then joined the conversation and sat on her father's lap, with Lefkoe challenging Candace and Shaquille O'Neal to make the little tot pop a smile. Candace went first, singing her version of the hit song, "Baby Shark." 

Her efforts paid off, with Kaavia popping a little smile. However, Shaquille O'Neal wasn't so lucky with the 1-year-old, as his attempts to talk to her failed woefully


Kaavia was unmoved and unconcerned about "Uncle Shaq," keeping a straight face all through his talk, and most importantly, living up to her crown of "The Shady Baby."

Gabrielle Union also posts adorable pictures and videos of her lovely daughter on her Instagram page, with one particular post on March 28 catching the attention of many of her fans. 

In the post, the proud mom shared pictures of Kaavia during her bath time that showed the toddler playing in the bubbles, with the fourth picture in the set showing Kaavia displaying her famous shady face.

Many of the actress's fans jumped to the comment section of the post to share their admiration for Kaavia, with one fan saying how much she loved the toddler's cheeks, and another tagging her as the "Precious baby."
