Proud mom: Gabrielle Union gushed about her daughter, Kaavia James, during an interview with E! News that was shared on Friday; she is seen with her daughter in 2019

The actress shares her daughter with her husband, Dwyane Wade, whom she married in 2014. 

Union, who regularly boasts about her youngest on Instagram, noted that Kaviaa’s  ‘language skills are off the charts.’

She added that she was particularly impressed with Kaavia ‘being able to count, her being able to identify certain words on the page, her being fully potty trained and asking for privacy. I don’t know what milestone that is.’  

The Bring It On star expressed that her child had been able to figure out how to work with various technological items around the house at an impressive rate. 

‘She figured out the remote before Mom did! Not sure what milestone that is in what book but for Kav, it’s been a game changer. She could turn on the TV herself and find her very specific YouTube videos that she wants to watch,’ she said.

Union did point out, however, that Kaavia still showcased her younger tendencies on certain occasions. 

She noted: ‘Then she has a tantrum and you’re like, “Wait, oh, wait, you’re not 100 years old. You’re a baby that cried because somebody put a tomato on your pasta and now you’re crying for the next four hours.”‘

The actress added that ‘it’s a whole thing. She’s a whole little bird.’

‘She seems like she could do pretty much anything. Yeah, we’re trying to just come up with different ways of challenging her because she’s kind of off the charts,’ she said.

Union and her husband try to set a good example for their daughter by working with various charitable groups. 

‘She has to see us giving things that we love away and sharing and making sure that if we have enough, then it is our duty to give to others, so they have enough or they have something to start with,’ she said.
