Actress Gabrielle Union shared a video on Instagram of her daughter Kaavia James dancing. The post elicited a host of comments from her fans, who were impressed.


Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union's adorable daughter, Kaavia James, is very famous on the internet for being the "Shady Baby" because of her funny facial expressions but showed that she also has some dance moves.

In a recent video her mother shared on Instagram, Kaavia seemed to be in the party mood as she grooved to the song, "Twice My Age" by Krystal & Shabba Banks. She moved her body to the beat, prompting Union to caption the post

"@kaaviajameswade is always down for a dance break."

The actress wasn't the only one impressed by her daughter's impressive dance moves, with many of her fans also commenting on the post, stating their admiration for Kaavia. 


One fan who commented joked that Kaavia must have been to earth before now, while Bresha Webb, in her comment, said that she was obsessed with Kaavia, urging the cute little tot to keep jamming. 

At first, her parents and siblings were terrified of the consequences of her bold decision, but with time and understanding, learned from the 12-year-old Zaya.

A third fan observed that Kaavia was trying to snap her little fingers, while another fan wrote, "Snapping her fingers! Get it boo."

Union and Kaavia enjoy a lot of quality time together, with the actress always keen to twin with her daughter. While social-distancing with her family, the actress shared a picture of her and Kaavia rocking similar hairstyles.

Union also added that when she took off her braids, Kaavia was surprised and began thinking she and her mom were now rocking natural curls. 


The romance between Union and her husband, Dwyane Wade, can be described as an interesting one. The couple has been through many ups and downs but has remained steadfast in their love for one another, which has helped them withstand those challenges. 

Apart from Kaavia, the couple is also parents to three other children, Xavier Zechariah, Zaire Blessing, and Zaya Wade; all from two different relationships. 


Wade, a former NBA star, in a documentary, opened up about a difficult time in his relationship with Union that involved him telling her he had a kid with another woman while they were on a break, and how they eventually came out of it. 

One of Wade's children, Zaya, came out as a transgender person earlier this year, sparking so much talk in the social circle. Zaya was born a male, with the name, Zion, but told her family that she wanted to be referred to as a female with the name, Zaya. 


At first, her parents and siblings were terrified of the consequences of her bold decision, but with time and understanding, learned from the 12-year-old Zaya, lessons about gender and equality

Zaya's parents and siblings are her strongest allies and support her to the very end, with Wade and his wife stepping out with the 12-year-old at the "Truth Awards" red carpet, which was her first appearance after coming out as a transgender person.
