In the video that was shared on the pair’s respective Instagram accounts, Union and Kaavia James were seen lounging around on the couch in what appeared to be their home as the actress revealed the news.

The clip starts with the mother-daughter duo staring at the camera as a voice-over track plays in the background. The track featured Union’s voice, saying, “when your child finds out that you’re going on vacation, but they’re not invited. Stay mad, jam, stay mad.”

Throughout the video, Union’s facial expression changed from a happy face to a frown when she saw how visibly annoyed Kaavia James was.

Although the “Being Mary Jane” star didn’t disclose where she would be going for her upcoming vacation, she did inform her followers that Kaavia James would be taken care of by her mother and sister. 

The 49-year-old wrote in the caption, “Mama gotta eat too now. Have fun with Grammie and Tia @kaaviajames #vacationloading #ShadyBaby.” As fans viewed the recording, many expressed how funny the post was. The remarks ranged from comments regarding Kaavia James’ facial expression to the video’s sound and visual effects. 

 “I’m dying over here because of her look.”

“Awww look at that face (laughing emoji).”

“Kaav certainly not in the mood (laughing emoji).”

“The slow mo took me out not hit’em with the slow mo on the baby.”

“Shady Baby Big Mad.” 

Among the previous responses, others brought up how they could relate to Union’s child-free trips. One wrote, “So sinister yet, so understood.” Another said, “Lmaooo. Poor baby. But it’s so nice to vacay without the kids sometimes.”

A third social media user posted, “As a Mom of a little, I feel this on so many levels.”

Union’s announcement about her upcoming trip comes weeks before her wedding anniversary. She and Wade. The couple married on Aug. 30, 2014.
