‘No Ma’am’: Gabrielle Union Fans Crack Up at Kaavia’s Reaction to the Actress Welcoming Dwyane Wade Home

There’s never a dull moment when little Kaavia James Union Wade is in a room. The daughter of award-winning actress Gabrielle Union and former NBA star Dwyane Wade had fans cracking up — as usual — after her parents shared her hilarious reaction to the former Miami Heat player returning home to his family. 

“Mommy? Can I do that,” the precocious 3-year-old asked the “Bad Boys II” star in a recent Instagram post. In it, the toddler was spotted wrapped around her parents, who were sharing a hug. “No, ma’am,” the 49-year-old best-selling author answered.

Gabrielle and Dwyane laughed as they made way for the “Janie and Jack” clothing founder.  The “Being Mary Jane” star signed off the post with a simple caption: “Daddy’s Home.”

Fans gushed at the heartfelt moment, which had garnered over two million views since the “Bring It On” star uploaded the clip on Sunday, June 26. “Say what you want about them, but this is real love not perfect not scripted just love and I’m here for it omg,” shared one online fan. 

Another person commented, “Those daughters with their daddy’s, whewwww!” “Mommy had a different plan,” quipped a third. 

Last month fans were stunned after Kaavia’s parents shared a video of the tot effortlessly talking to fans while spending quality time with her father. The clip starts with the 3-year-old telling a story of Union washing her hair when she was a baby. “I was a baby Kaavia when my mom would wash my hair,” the little one explained.

Dwyane later instructed her to “Say good morning. Good morning everybody.” The 41-year-old then asked Kaavia James what she had for breakfast. She pointed to her meal, “This.”  When her dad told her to clarify what that was, she answered, “toast and bacon.” 

Online users were blown away by her communication skills and extensive vocabulary, including one person who wrote, “OMG!! Not my internet niece talking in full sentences! She’s getting so big!” Several other fans gushed at their girl-dad bond.  “Aww! Beautiful moments like these between daddy and daughter,” another person shared.
