Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade have written a new children’s book inspired by their 2-year-old, Kaavia James.
According to People, the youngest Wade child is a force in her own right, amassing a large following on social media because of her spirited personality.
“It’s been a challenge,” Union, says about potty training, with a laugh. “She’s very strong willed!!”
The couple wrote the book “Shady Baby” to honor Kaavia’s strong yet relatable personality.
“People see themselves in Kaav,” Wade said, of the book, set to be released on May 18th. “Some days you don’t feel like doing your hair. And some days you want to give people shade.”
“Shade is her superpower because when Kaavia gives you a look, it’s either you’re not respecting her boundaries or something is happening that she doesn’t like,” Union added.
“The main takeaway is that she’s free to be this amazing, dynamic, shady at times, loving at times Black little girl when the world has not been so kind to Black girls and women,” Union explained.
