When we peek inside the details of Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s marriage, there’s a lot to unpack! They are both talented and successful individuals, but they can become formidable forces when they work together.

Gabrielle and Dwyane have made it work, despite the many highs and lows. They were engaged in 2013 when he proposed, and got married in 2014. Here’s what you should know about the kids they share.

What number of biological children does Gabrielle Union have.

In 2018, Gabrielle gave birth to Kaavia James Union Wade — and already the adorable youngster has 1.8 million followers on Instagram! Obviously, she doesn’t run her own account. Her parents take care of posting adorable photos and videos to the account. They also make sure that it is up-to-date by consistently posting.

There are adorable photos of Kaavia in pink fuzzy unicorn pajamas and playing in empty boxes while she lies out for some sun near her backyard pool.

Gabrielle was able to help Kaavia become a mother through the surrogate. It was an emotional journey. She had to go through many failed IVF treatments over the years and suffered the pain of eight to nine miscarriages before she finally decided to use a surrogate.

Dwyane also shares a child with Aja Metoyer, a woman you may recognize from Basketball Wives, which means Gabrielle is the stepmom to three of Dwyane’s children. Along with all these little ones, Dwyane and Gabrielle also raise his nephew, Dahveon Morris, as their own.

Five children in total is a lot of responsibility! Something interesting to note about his daughter Zaya is that in 2020, she announced that she is a transgender girl.

Dwyane revealed in a Good Morning America interview that she told him knew she was transgender for nearly nine years before revealing her gender identity. Gabrielle and Dwyane have fully embraced their daughter’s truth and been beyond supportive.

Gabrielle certainly has a lot of kids to take care of, but she’s the type of woman who appears to be totally up for the challenge. In most interviews she participates in, she comes across as a very kind, gentle, and nurturing person. Odds are, her children likely feel that way about her too.
