Fans found Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade's daughter, Kaavia James "hilarious" as she tries to make friends with a dog in a new video.


Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade's little angel, Kaavia James is Instagram famous with over 1 million followers. The celebrity couple's daughter is a star in her own right for her several photos and videos that connect with the moods of many or simply make her fans laugh.

Recently, the one-year-old shared her encounter with a dog that had fans and followers off their seats from laughter. The adorable little girl crawled near a black French Bulldog in the clip to say, "hi."


As soon as Kaavia's new furry friend got up to greet her, the NBA star's daughter stood up and ran off. Her parents who control the account captioned the post:

"When you prank call someone with Caller ID ???"


Several fans also commented on the "hilarious" video. They shared nothing but kind words about Kaavia, including one who said the one-year-old captured an entire "mood" and another who said the caption was on point.

Union's journey into motherhood inspired her to pen the children's book, "Welcome to the Party," which tells the story of a child's coming through surrogacy.


Baby Kaavia entered this world through a surrogate mother after Union suffered from fertility issues for years, including "eight or nine" miscarriages and an adenomyosis diagnosis.

At first, Union felt devastated that surrogacy was her only option left. "The idea of [using a surrogate] felt like surrendering to failure," she said. "People want to see the bump, hear that you got hemorrhoids -- they want to know you're like them."

However, everything changed when Kaavia came on November 7, 2018. The proud mom shared the pronunciation of her daughter's name online along with its meaning, "full of imagination." She added that it takes from Indian origin.

Union's journey into motherhood inspired her to pen the children's book, "Welcome to the Party," which tells the story of a child's coming through surrogacy and a family's preparation for the journey.

In an Instagram post, Union introduced her book to the public as a story that celebrates families and the coming of a child, regardless of the unorthodox means it goes through.

The book which is a dedication to Kaavia is also a way of helping families who are going through the same experience she did to accept and be grateful to the process.
