Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are still basking in the glory of new daughter, Kaavia James Union Wade, who was born Nov. 7. After weeks of family bonding, Union has shared very emotional footage of the expectant parents in the delivery room in the moments leading up to baby Kaavia’s birth.
“Every family is unique,” writes Union in the caption. “How each family is created and comes together is special. Kaavia James Union Wade’s journey into our arms was long and at times brutal.
“There were heartbreaks that nearly broke us and streams of tears that turned into raging rivers. And then came Kaavia James.”
Union went on, “This is our birth journey. Thank you all for the love, support and understanding and all the people who held us up when we lost hope. Watch it with love. (Full video on my IGTV).
The couple recently welcomed media powerhouse Oprah Winfrey into their home to discuss their bundle of joy for their own OWN television special.
“From the Bottle to the Bassinet… No New Friends. Crew. Tight,” shared Union alongside of photo of the Wades with Winfrey. “So excited to share what we have been working on with @oprah & @kaaviajames Oprah at Home with Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade & Their New Baby.”
