Dwyane Wade and his youngest daughter, Kaavia, are super close, and it shows. The dad and daughter were the sweetest pair in recent photos shared on her Instagram account.  


With 1.6 million followers on her Instagram page, Kaavia James Union Wade is already quite the mini-superstar. Her parents, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade, who run the social media page, keep it updated with fun and unique content.

Occasionally, the doting parents are featured on the page, along with some hilarious captions. The latest post featuring Kaavia and Wade was no different and melted the toddler's fans' hearts.

The heartwarming photos depicted Kaavia cuddling up with Wade, who looked cozy in a peach sweater, camo-print jacket, and gray knit hat. Kaavia rocked a cream top and gray pants while clutching on to her yellow stuffed toy.

The dynamic duo looked endearing as Wade held on to his daughter in a tender but protective manner. With their faces snuggled close to each other, it was easy to spot their striking resemblance. The post was hilariously captioned:

"Awaiting the zombie apocalypse. Just me, Dad and Chimey. Everybody else on their own."


Naturally, Kaavia's fans were delighted by the sweet photo, which showed a sweet side to the baby, often called the "shady baby" because of her unimpressed facial expressions. Many agreed that the pair looked like twins.

One fan exclaimed, "Looks just like her daddy," while another wrote, "This is so cute papa." A third fan commented that Kaavia is truly a daddy's girl.


Wade is extremely close with his daughter, and the dynamic duo has already created many incredible memories together, which are regularly shared on social media. 

Among their most memorable videos is a clip of the retired NBA player teaching Kaavia to play basketball. While it's too early to tell if she inherited her father's basketball skills, her efforts were still entertaining to watch.


It's evident that Kaavia has a soft spot for Wade, but she enjoys spending time with her mom, Union, just as much. The girls are often captured twinning in chic mommy-daughter outfits or spending time in the pool.

Last year, the "Bring It On" actress, and her daughter had fans in awe after sharing a video of Kaavia learning to swim. Her skills were impressive, considering she was only 17 months old at the time.

Swimming is not the only skill Kaavia learned over the past year. The sweet tot also learned to sing the alphabet and was glad to recite her version for her mom while on camera.

The February 27 video showed the smart two-year-old singing the famous song while hopping and jumping in her playroom before shifting her attention to her toy motorcycle.
