Actress Gabrielle Union had no qualms splurging on a gift for her daughter Kaavia. The "Bring it On" star gave her two-year-old daughter a pricey Valentino handbag.


"Bring it On" actress Gabrielle Union proved she is one thoughtful mom with a sophisticated fashion taste after gifting her two-year-old daughter, Kaavia James, with a $3,790 Valentino handbag.

The actress flaunted the luxury item in a new TikTok video which showed Kaavia excitedly unboxing her gift. After seeing that it's a handbag, the adorable girl stood up and strutted with it.

Clad in a matching pink shirt and shorts, Kaavia showed off her modeling chops while holding the small black purse and pretending to be a doctor. A female companion in the room could be heard saying:

"Yes ma'am. You're a successful doctor with your Valentino bag."

The small Valentino Garavani Alcove handbag features grainy calfskin leather and a structured design. Its VLogo Signature is covered with studs and has a double twist-lock closure.


Union, who shares Kaavia with NBA legend Dwayne Wade, posted the adorable clip for her more than 3.7 million TikTok followers. In the caption, the actress wrote that her daughter was reacting to her first Valentino handbag.

Kaavia boasts 1.7 million followers on Instagram, where fans eagerly await her online antics.

The jaw-dropping moment is reminiscent of the time hip-hop stars Cardi B and Offset gave their two-year-old daughter, Kulture, a Birkin bag as a birthday gift.


At the time, naysayers online questioned the appropriateness of giving such an expensive item to a child who was not old enough to appreciate its value.

As for Kaavia, her parents agreed she seemed to behave more maturely than her age. The stylish toddler has been attracting massive attention for her "big personality," which earned her the nickname "Shady Baby."


Kaavia boasts 1.7 million followers on Instagram, where fans eagerly await her online antics. Her popularity and amusing personality inspired Union and Wade to write a children's book titled "Shady Baby."

Illustrated by Tara Nicole Whitaker and published by HarperCollins, the book follows the "fabulous" Shady Baby as she teaches "not-so-nice" kids in a park how to play nice. The book is available at Barnes and Noble starting May 18.

Union and Wade, who tied the knot in 2014, recently opened up about their parenting style, saying their number one priority is to make their children feel loved and supported.

The power couple shared about their experience leading a blended family. Aside from Kaavia, Union is a stepmom to Wade's children, Zaya, 13, Zaire, 19, Xavier, 7, and his nephew, Dahveion, 19.
