Dwyane Wade's children enjoyed a heartwarming family moment when his son, Zaire, posted a photo of himself sharing his cellphone with his little sister, Kaavia.
Most teenagers have a lot of rules for when it comes to their privacy, especially when that involves safely guarding all the secrets hidden in their cellphone.
That rule certainly applied to Dwyane Wade's son, Zaire Wade. However, he had only one person exempt from the rule, he revealed, "[Kaavia James Wade] the only female who's allowed to look through my phone."
In the heartwarming moment between the two siblings, Kaavia looked relaxed on the floor as she sat between Zaire's legs while scrolling through his phone.
One person wasn't sure how long their arrangement would last and joked, "soon, she'll know how to read, and it will be 'hands-off' to her too." Gabrielle Union commented and expressed how amusing she found the post.

Zaire is also ready to follow his famous father's footsteps and pursuing a career in the NBA. Since he retired his jersey in February 2020, Dwyane toldPEOPLE
that he has been helping his son with his basketball career, he explained:
"There's so many different ways to get to the NBA or to get that path. So, [I'm] just trying to help him navigate through expectations."
Dwyane also admitted that he is very hands-on when it comes to coaching Zaire, and sometimes he has to calm himself down during his high school games, he explained:
"I self-talk all the time. I'm sitting over there and I'm like, 'Don't go crazy. Don't go over there and choke the coach."
According to ESPN, Dwyane took a bold stance ahead of one of Zaire's game in early March when he tweeted that he would not be attending the game Zaire's school, Sierra Canyon were playing against Sheldon High School.
The former NBA star expressed his frustration with the coach because his son was sitting out a major game. However, he still expressed his support for the team.
Zaire is a star player and often plays with LeBron James' son, Bronny James. The two share a close bond and are considered a dynamic duo on the basketball court.
Dwyane revealed that he is encouraging his son to take the same path as him and go to college first before he is drafted to the NBA.
