Gabrielle Union’s Latest Mother-Daughter Video Features a *Very* Distracted Kaavia (& a Rare Glimpse into Her Kitchen)

There’s never a dull moment in the Wade-Union household, especially when Kaavia is involved.

While Gabrielle Union’s latest Instagram video is supposed to be a nice mom-and-daughter moment—and it is—the 1-year-old clearly has other ideas. As the duo shares hugs and kisses, Kaavia seems more focused on her snacks (and we can’t blame her.)

Union captioned the post, “Sunday mornings with @kaaviajames. This baby knew her mama needed a little extra [heart emojis]. For everyone who needs some [heart emojis]. Hold on. Hold on, you are loved, you are so loved.”

In the vid, the L.A. Finest’s star holds her daughter (who sits eating her snacks happily on the counter) and asks her, “You just want to stay like this while we eat some Chex, hm?” Kaavia shares a kiss, saying hi before bringing her mother close for a hug while still holding onto her snacks. (If Kaavia isn’t a mood then who is?) Aside from being distracted by her food, Kaavia spends another moment looking out at something going on outside before joining Union in a “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” singalong.

While the video is cute and all, we’d be irresponsible not to point out that Union also gave followers a glimpse into her kitchen. The marble counter, marble walls and open concept make us want a home tour soon. Perhaps also featuring Kaavia?

Since quarantine, the Being Mary Jane star has been posting non-stop home content of Kaavia including a never-before-seen photoshoot, outtakes of the 1-year-old’s “I'm so over this” face and twinning snapshots. We hope the fun doesn’t end, and with big celebs like Ellen Pompeo, Octavia Spencer and Naomi Campbell gushing over the two on social media, we don’t think it will anytime soon.
