Gabrielle Union and daughter Kaavia James Union-Wade are taking some time to lounge around after a busy Halloween week, and the actress’s Instagram followers are loving it.
On Saturday, Gabrielle took to Instagram to share a series of shots of her 11-month-old daughter wearing a onesie and looking adorable as they played together outside. The first picture showed the actress wearing a bathrobe and moving her hand through her long hair as she sat with Kaavia outside. The next shot showed Kaavia standing on both feet as she appeared to attempt walking. There were two more shots showing the tot sitting at a table and putting a small white object into her mouth.
The series of pictures were a big hit with fans, garnering close to 1,000 likes every minute within the first hour of being posted, along with a number of comments about how fast Kaavia is growing — especially the shot of Kaavia trying to walk.
“Shes gets more adorable each day,” one fan wrote.
“Those 2 bottom teeth killlll me in every photo,” another wrote, adding a series of heart-eyes emoji.
Gabrielle tagged the photo with Melanin on the Map, the name of a travel app dedicated to helping travelers of color get the best possible vacation experience. It’s not clear if the actress has any actual connection to the company, or is just sharing some information about it with her followers.
Gabrielle’s fans have been seeing a lot of Kaavia on social media this week. The photos came after the actress shared some snaps of the adorable matching Halloween costumes that she and Kaavia donned to celebrate the holiday this week.
Gabrielle, who welcomed Kaavia through a surrogate last year, has used her Instagram page to give her followers an up-close glimpse of their family life and the milestones that her daughter has hit over the last 11 months. In one Instagram post shared back in August, Gabrielle showed fans her daughter practicing her first words.
As Gabrielle later told People magazine, Kaavia went a bit against the grain with her first word.
“I thought saying ‘Mom’ or ‘Dad’ first was sort of natural, but then she started saying ‘Bye,’ which says it all,” Gabrielle said. “We say ‘Hi’ and ‘Hey’ so she kinda gets that, she says that pretty okay. But when we leave her, we say ‘Bye-bye,’ and that’s what stuck. And that’s what is super clear. She’s very articulate with the ‘Bye-bye.’ “
