The cute posts of Union and Kaavia are on-brand for the multitalented star. Union has shared in the past how much she loves matching with Kaavia as much as possible. The desire for her to find outfits that the two can wear was what inspired her baby line with New York and Company. The collection ranges from $15-45 and was Union’s second collaboration with the brand. The actress first partnered with the retailer in August 2018.
Kaavia is Union’s first child. She and husband Dwyane Wade announced in November 2018 that their daughter was born via surrogate. Union has been vocal in the past about her journey to motherhood, noting that she suffered several miscarriages and rounds of IVF in the past.
