    Gabrielle Union’s daughter Kaavia’s first word is “bye”

    The ‘America’s Got Talent’ judge welcomed her first child Kaavia - whom she has with husband Dwayne Wade - into the world via surrogate mother nine months ago, and has revealed the tot can now let people know when it’s time to go, as she’s learned how to say goodbye


    Gabrielle uploaded a video of Kaavia saying “bye-bye” on social media on Tuesday (20.08.19) and later admitted that shunning the traditional first words of “mama” or “dada” just “says it all” about her tot’s unique personality.

    Speaking to People magazine, she said: “I thought saying ‘Mom’ or ‘Dad’ first was sort of natural, but then she started saying ‘Bye,’ which says it all. She’s very much her own person.

    “We say ‘Hi’ and ‘Hey’ so she kinda gets that, she says that pretty okay. But when we leave her, we say ‘Bye-bye,’ and that’s what stuck. And that’s what is super clear. She’s very articulate with the ‘Bye-bye.’ ”

    Meanwhile, the ‘Being Mary Jane’ star, 46, recently hit out at those who try to make working mums feel "guilty" for keeping their jobs, because she believes having the time to go away and "do what [she] loves" actually makes her a better mum to her tot.

    She said: "I don't have mom guilt, and I'll tell you why. Being able to have the job that I love and the baby that I dreamed of [is great]. I'm a better mom because I'm able to go away and do what I love. Even if I failed miserably, I'm following my dreams. ... I would be less of a mother if I didn't set out every day to try to make my dreams come true and other people's dreams come true. So I don't have guilt.”

    Gabrielle and Dwayne welcomed Kaavia via surrogate mother after the 'LA's Finest' star tragically suffered eight miscarriages, and Gabrielle now says the couple never gave up hope when it came to their family dream.

    She added: "[Kaavia's] just amazing. I'm so glad that me and my husband and our family just kept trying and plugging away and hoping and praying. She's all of our dreams come true."
