Apparently "Bring It On" star Gabrielle Union passed on her skills to daughter Kaavia James Union Wade, because she is bringing it on the dance floor in a new video posted to the 3-year-old's Instagram. In the video posted Tuesday, Kaavia and Union show off their moves next to the pool, while the caption reads: "It's always time for a dance break. Interpretative dance is my jam. Stay entertained my friends."
The young queen's confidence is highlighted by the text, "about to grant you with my presence & talents," which appears across the screen right before Kaavia jumps into the pool — perfectly timed with Ciara's new single, "Jump," of course.
With 1.9 million followers, the toddler has over 1,000 posts that show her doing everything from learning how to ride a bike to sharing messages of self-love. Many followers refer to Kaavia as their "niece" and find it bittersweet that she's getting older, with comments like, "Can she slow down her growth, please?" and "baby getting tall."
The clip shows the "mini" influencer rocking a new "Moana" swimsuit from the latest collaboration between children's brand Janie and Jack and Disney, which she shared in a fashion show on her Instagram last week.
A few months ago, the little fashionista's father and Union's husband, Dwyane Wade, shared on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" that their daughter's positive energy is what got the family through the last couple of years, saying: "She has her own swag and personality. Through the pandemic she kept us all going and having something to look forward to."
Union and Wade cofounded Proudly, a baby-care line designed for melanated skin, after Kaavia was born to "teach her to embrace her skin," according to the website. The Instagram account (@theproudlyco) commented on Kaavia's video, "We should all be living this week with such a vibe," and we couldn't agree more.
