Welcome to the family, Kaavia James Union Wade! Dwyane Wade has announced his newborn baby girl’s name on Instagram just days after he welcomed his first child via surrogate with his wife, Gabrielle Union.

Gabrielle, 46, and Dwyane, 36, previously announced that they are new parents to Kaavia one week ago on Thursday, Nov. 8. The couple welcomed their daughter via surrogate and Gabrielle shared a few heartfelt lyrics from Bill Withers’ song “Lovely Day” on Instagram to commemorate the occasion.
“When I wake up in the mornin’ love and the sunlight hurts my eyes, and there’s something without warning, love bears heavy on my mind. Then I Iook at you and the world’s alright with me. Just one look at you and I know it’s gonna be a lovely day. A lovely day,” she wrote online.
She and Dwyane also shared the same three photos of them adorably looking at Kaavia moments after she was born. “We are sleepless and delirious but so excited to share that our miracle baby arrived last night via surrogate and 11/7 will forever be etched in our hearts as the most loveliest of all the lovely days. Welcome to the party sweet girl,” they both wrote on Instagram.
Since Kaavia’s arrival, Dwyane and Gabrielle have also shared a couple of photos to social media of them holding their new child. In one snap, Gabrielle gives Kaavia a sweet kiss on the forehead and notes how much she loves her child’s scent.
“This baby smell though?! Heaven 👶🏾👶🏾,” she wrote. And in another photo, Kaavia is seen snuggling next to her dad while watching sports. “Thanks for letting daddy watch some football 🏈!! We’re already working together well. #Myhappyplace #AFatherFirst #Beardown,” Dwyane wrote online. How sweet!
