Actress Gabrielle Union takes to Instagram with adorable photos of her daughters Kaavia James and Zaya, while celebrating Zaya's thirteenth birthday.


On May 29, actress and author Gabrielle Union took to Instagram to celebrate her daughter, Zaya's thirteenth birthday with adorable pictures of Zaya and her baby sister, Kaavia, playing outdoors. Captioning her post, she wrote:

"Everyone please send a big Happy Birthday ? to @zayawade ??She is so patient with me, so much fun and has taught me the art of how to shade the parents!! 13 years old!!!"

Gabrielle's series of four pictures showed baby Kaavia looking adorable in a light blue summer dress with her hair slicked down in a cute style.

The birthday girl, Zaya, was dressed in bright and warm colors, light blue jeans, and a plain white tee. She had a white ball in her hand and seemed like she wanted to toss it to Kaavia so she could play with it too.


Gabrielle's fans and followers trooped to the comment section to gush about how adorable the two sisters looked and offered their best wishes to Zaya, as they wished her a happy thirteenth birthday.


The support that Wade promised his daughter was something he practiced every day.

Gabrielle also shared a picture of herself and Zaya, laughing together and expressing her love for her. Gabrielle revealed that Zaya was her inspiration to get up and fight every day. Whenever she was weary, angry, or frustrated, the 13-year-old's face and joy elevate her.


The actress and her husband, Dwyane Wade, opened up about Zaya's recent debut as transgender earlier this year. They admitted that some times the comments got to them, but supporting their daughter was their priority.

Wade also said that his hopes for Zaya were the same as any of his other children — the criticism that they got about their decision to support Zaya meant little to them. They loved all their kids, and it would remain that way.


Wade also took to Instagram to celebrate his daughter's new age. He shared pictures of himself and his daughter posing on a balcony in front of a sunset. The former basketball star called her the bravest person he knows and assured that he would always stand by her side.

The support that Wade promised his daughter was something he practiced every day. A few days before Zaya's birthday, he and Zaya showed off new hairdos in a TikTok video. They did their hair in an eccentric pink color.


The pair looked stunning together. Zaya's baby sister, Kaavia, is also not a stranger to the spotlight. Her parents often show her off on social media. In May, the toddler cracked people up with a hilarious attempt at the popular fruit snack challenge. Rather than be patient, she gobbled up the treats.

Zaya and Kaavia also have two other siblings, Zaire and Xavier, and together with their doting parents, they make up the happy Wade-Union family.
