‘We Were Not Ready’: Gabrielle Union, Daughter Kaavia James Serve Serious Looks in African Print

Gabrielle Union frequently gives major face all on her own, but in a new post on her page the actress has a little bit of company who is serving looks, too.

The “America’s Got Talent” judge shared an image of herself and daughter Kaavia James on Instagram July 16 posing in matching outfits featuring African print from Sai Sankoh.

“Settled and Serving. #AGT,” Union, who wore her Aphrodite Goddess caftan as an open bikini cover-up while her baby wore a headband with her ‘fit, captioned the post. The message was complete with a hashtag promoting the NBA talent competition series.

The image had fans wowed, and they let it be known they adored the mother-daughter looks.

“We weren’t ready!”

“Beautiful African American queen and princess.”

“I love you Gabby!! Both so beautiful!! ❤️😍😍”

“I can’t even deal with Kaavia and her facial expressions. I swear she makes my day 😍💕 two beauties.”

“This pic is everything ok!!😍”

“The queen and princess completes the it⭐⭐⭐🔥🔥🔥😘”

While fans complimented both mom and daughter for their appearance in this case, Kaavia James frequently steals the attention away from Union and the star’s husband, retired NBA player Dwyane Wade.

One moment that was firmly all Kaavia James came in June once the 8-month-old learned to crawl.

“Come on. I know. There you go,” Wade told the baby to encourage her to push through. “You trying. Yeah, that’s OK. You got it, big girl.”

Fans happily gushed over the achievement.

“This just made me cry .. so stinkin cute 😭😻. Beautiful. 🙏🏾”

“Omgggg!!! Sooooo precious! This made my night!!! ❤️”

“😍 My heart right now 😍”

Of course, there’s also Kaavia James’ signature mean mug that earned her the nickname Shady Baby from her parents. The infant’s scowl has delighted her Instagram followers and even turned into a potentially lucrative business move her mom and dad made on her behalf.

In March, Wade and Union filed paperwork with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The goal is to sell jewelry, clothing, hair care and baby products under their baby’s viral nickname as well as her legal name.
