"Being Mary Jane" actress Gabrielle Union's adorable daughter Kaavia joined her family in celebrating her big brother Zaire's 19th birthday in a funny tribute shared on her Instagram account.


Zaire Blessing Wade, the son of retired NBA player Dwayne Wade, recently turned 19 years and his family went all out to celebrate the big day with sweet tributes on Instagram.

Zaire's sister, Kaavia James Union-Wade, also wished him a happy birthday through her parent-run Instagram account. The funny post featured adorable pictures of the "shady baby" with her mom, Gabrielle Union, and brother.

The first pic showed Zaire, Union, and Kaavia dressed in all black while at an event with hundreds of people. Zaire looked casually cool in ripped jeans and a hooded sweater with the words "Dwyane's Legacy" printed on the front.

Union sported a beaming white smile while wearing a black outfit with a large white collar and braided hair. Kaavia was pictured curiously staring right at her brother, Zaire.


In the second pic, a younger Zaire was captured outdoors while holding Kaavia, who looked adorable with short, tiny baby hair and a black printed onesie. The caption read:


"9 huh??? Seems like just yesterday we were running our "Come see my cute baby sister and stay for dessert scam."


Judging from the post, Zaire's family is still surprised at how fast the aspiring professional basketball player is growing. In the past, Union has talked about how difficult it is parenting her and Wade's older kids.

Union's family is a mix of unique characters who together form a beautiful family.

The "Bring It On" actress is not only a stepmom to Zaire, but she's also mom to Wade's two other kids, Zaya, 13, and Xavier, 7, as well as the former Miami Heat player's nephew, Dahveon, who they look after.


Despite the tough adjustment of parenting the older kids in college, the Wade household is generally zen, and the clan embraces their non-traditional blended family.

Union is so passionate about her modern family that she wrote a children's book, "Welcome To The Party," celebrating families that came together in more unconventional ways like hers.


Union's family is a mix of unique characters who together form a beautiful family. She and Wade welcomed their daughter, Kaavia, via surrogate, while their teenage daughter, Zaya, was born a boy and came out as transgender in early 2020.

The entire family presented a unified front to support Zaya, including Zaire, who penned a heartfelt message proclaiming his unconditional love despite some negativity surrounding the matter.
