Fans show love to Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade's daughter Kaavia James as she gets a face painting. The two-year-old is one of the most famous celebrity kids on the internet.


The Instagram account of Kaavia James, daughter of Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union, posted a couple of her pictures where she had her face painted as a tiger. The post was captioned:

"When the final look does not match the inspo picture you provided. But where she goes is better than what you thought you wanted. Growth. #ShadyBaby"

The post had three photos in which the two-year-old went from giving a serious face at the beginning to a happy face at the end after seeing her painted face in a mirror. Fans were quick to comment on the post, with one saying:

"Kaav does not play!!! You better know!!!"


The post, which now has over 70,000 likes and more than 500 comments, had fans drooling over the comments with love for the two-year-old.

One fan commented that she loves Kaavia and she is "such a mood," while another one added a sarcastic comment saying the baby had to smile not to hurt the feelings of the artist painting her face.

Union had to clear the air later about the expensive bag saying that it was a gift from the brand after fans aired their displeasure.


Kaavia's Instagram account is run by her parents Wade and Union. Union knows how much the internet loves her daughter and does not refrain from consistently sharing her photos.

Both mother and daughter got even greater love from fans when Union shared an adorable Mother's Day post of her and Kaavia in a bubble bath. She added the caption:

"Best Mother's Day yet. Somehow my relaxing bubble bath party, for one, got crashed by Baby Shark (aka @kaaviajames #ShadyBaby."


Union is used to her daughter being a celebrity baby and getting all the love and affection from fans and celebrities on the internet. Even business brands are not left out, and this love has come bearing gifts.

One gift that Kaavia recently got was a Valentino bag worth $3790. Union shared an adorable video of her daughter unboxing her first Valentino purse.


Union had to clear the air later about the expensive bag saying that it was a gift from the brand after fans aired their displeasure and thought the gift was too excessive for a two-year-old.

Kaavia would be proud to have such supportive parents as Wade and Union who have come out to declare that her "shade" is her superpower.

Kaavia has a side-eye which has become a signature for her, making her facial expressions even funnier. Pictures of her funny face have been made into memes and have made her famous across social media.
