Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade fans discovered the answer to this question when the stars’ daughter and pet recently had a cute stare-down with one another.
The moment was captured in a photo, which was then uploaded to the famous parents’ baby girl’s Instagram account Sunday, March 17.
“If this dog thinks he’s gonna out cute me, he’s got another thang comin’.” the caption of the pic read. It looks as if young Kaavia James Union Wade is not going to allow French Bulldog Tre’ Wade outdo her when it comes to who’s more worthy of making hearts burst with cuteness overload.
Fans cracked up at how serious Kaavia James, who has earned the nickname Shady Baby for her serious expressions, looked at the Frenchie, who is one of five dogs in the Union-Wade household.
“Her look though ”
“Lol! You go ‘Shadybaby’! Lol!”
“‘I’ve said what I said…for the last time!’ ”
They also couldn’t help but remark about how cute the interaction was between the two.
“She is so adorable!. Those cheeks ”
“Awww so cute..hey dwoggie..you kute TOO”
The photo means Kaavia James, the youngest of Wade’s three children and his live-in nephew, is back on her brand after she gave fans a glimpse of her smile in a video uploaded to her actress mom’s Instagram account earlier this month.
“Don’t Worry. Be Happy. A little joy for the timeline ” Union wrote in the caption of the March 5 video. Little Kaavia James raised her arms above her head and showed off a gummy grin as Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” played over the clip.
The move delighted most fans but there were a few who were longing for the days when the 4-month-old lived up to her Shady Baby moniker.
The smile still remains on the baby’s page. Still, a glimpse of some of the captions affirm that grin or not, Kaavia James still knows how to throw some shade. A recent example came March 9 when Kaavia James looked back behind her smirking as Union held her.
“She just realized I stopped following her weeks ago. #shadybaby,” the caption read.
