Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s 7-month-old daughter Kaavia James has a personality that’s earned her the nickname “shady baby,” but she’s also an exact replica of her Father. In all of their cute family moments shared on Instagram, Wade literally melts at the sight of his baby girl, and even though she can’t talk just yet, we can see the feeling is mutual.
Scroll through the gallery of all the times Dwyane Wade and Kaavia James’s uncanny resemblance made us do a double take.
Apple Of My Eye
Dwyane Wade welcomed their daughter Kaavia James via surrogate on Nov. 7th. “She looks just like Dad, but I’d like to think the attitude is from me,” Union told PEOPLE in February. “She will stare into your soul and tell you about yourself through her eyes.”
When baby’s happy, dad’s happy too!
Union also says Kaavia and Daddy have a special bond. “There are a bunch of boys [in our house], and he’s like, ‘yeah, yeah, whatever,” Union explains. “But with Kaav, she drools and he’s like, ‘Oh my gosh.’”
Side Eye Twins
Union told ESSENCE that at only a few months old, baby Kaavia is already showing classic signs of a Scorpio. In addition to having very particular taste, mom says, “She does not do baby talk. She’d prefer to listen to CNN over baby talk any day. She’s not with that. You can have a normal conversation with her and she’ll react.”
Baby Kaavia has affectionately been nicknamed “Shady Baby” because of her infamous expressions.

Dad is in love with his little sleeping baby.
Dedicated To Her
Soon after her birth, Dwyane got Kaavia James tattooed on both of her shoulder blades. The ink work was done during one of his trips to China.
This eight-month-old has already racked up an impressive collection of stamps on her passport.
Dwyane Wade totally supports his wife and daughters collection with New York & Company called the “Kaavi James Collection.” Seeing baby Kaavia making boss baby moves made Dad feel like “a proud manager aka Popager.”
