Gabrielle Union Snuggles with Daughter Kaavia and French Bulldog in Adorable New Instagram Post

We love Gabrielle Union's Instagram not only for her fashion posts, but for her family ones as well.

The Bring It On actress loves to post snaps of her 2-year-old daughter, Kaavia, who she and her husband, Dwyane Wade, endearingly refer to as “Shady Baby.” The mom and daughter were seen chilling together in a new set of photos on Union's Instagram, and they were joined by an extra guest.

The two were snuggling on a loveseat with one of the family's dogs, a french bulldog named Tre. In the pics, Union sported a gray pajama set and some pink fuzzy socks. She rested her arm on the dog, while Kaavia laid her head on her mom's hip. In the caption, Union said, “Everybody Tired. Always best to let sleeping dogs and sleepy toddlers chill and just be their cute selves. PS... me @kaaviajames with the twinning @flawlessbygu curls.”

Union's photos were snapped in the gorgeous backyard where she and the rest of her family love to do at-home photoshoots. The picturesque setup is not only full of comfy furniture, but also includes an outdoor bar, a pool and an impressive playhouse for Kaavia.

While we were obsessed with these photos, it seems we weren't the only ones. Actress Jurnee Smollett said, “This is the most adorable picture!!!” Photographer April Johnston added, “Nothing cuter than this.”

Although the mom and daughter were only twinning with their curls, Union is always game when it comes to matching moments. Whether she's twinning with Kaavia, or switching outfits with her stepdaughter, Zaya Wade, Union always translates her love of fashion into a family affair. And we are so here for it.
