Gabrielle Union’s ‘Shady Baby’ Has Her Own IG and It’s Everything

If you are not familiar with “Shady Baby,” let’s bring you up to speed. Actress Gabrielle Union and basketball superstar, Dwayne Wade’s 9-month-old daughter, Kaavia James Union Wade has been serving all the shade on her dedicated Instagram page since she was just a few days old.

Kaavia has earned the nickname ‘shady baby’ because of her incredible facial expressions that seem beyond her years. Her signature looks have garnered almost 1M followers on Instagram.

The couple has been very open about their journey to parenthood and had their daughter with the help of a surrogate in November 2018. Union opted for surrogacy after she learned that she had adenomyosis, a kind of endometriosis that increases the risk of a miscarriage during pregnancy. 

In a January 2019, Today article, the actress was quoted saying

“I’m so glad I got over myself and my fear of what people would think of me if I did not carry my own child.”
