Baby Kaavia is a miracle, and she has made it possible for Gabrielle Union to finally celebrate her first Mother’s Day.
In a sweet message posted on Instagram, she explained that this is the first time in many years, she did not cry painful tears over the fact that she was still childless and was yearning to be a mother.
Gabrielle, who was very open about the entire process, decided to show the world a rare photo — a happy, excited and beyond emotional mother receiving her baby from a surrogate.
Gabrielle wrote: “I’ve cried so many times today for so many reasons, mainly because I’d gotten accustomed to heartbreak and disappointment. I think a lot of us live in that space. I set up shop there. This moment reminded me that miracles do happen. You cant age out of joy. You are worthy. You are worthy. You are worthy. Sending so much love today to all the mamas, stepmamas, grandmas, aunties real and play, daddies, friends and anyone who has taken the time to nurture another living soul. I see you, I gotchu. And to those who have lost their mamas, grandmas, mother figures, sending extra love and light and hugs your way. 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗”
She added: “I’m still in shock. I really can’t believe @kaaviajames is actually here. I can’t believe I haven’t snuck off to cry super ugly fat tears today like I have in the past. I’m just grateful and happy. My sunshine. Cc @dwyanewade S/O for those gluten free pancakes this morning. You the real MVP HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!! Why is @kaaviajames so painfully unbothered though?!? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣”
One fan said: “Happy Mother’s Day mommy!!!! Kaav is slickly to have you! It makes my heart smile seeing you with your baby girl and beautiful family! Amen! God bless you and enjoy your day!❤️🙏🏽”
Another commenter stated: “Here and the cutest little pumpkin we’ve seen! Happy Mother’s Day love ❤️Tell me something why would Instagram put something so BEAUTIFUL as life coming into the world and parents reaction to first time seeing their BEAUTIFUL BABY as GRAPHIC CONTENT? IJS.🤔”
This person claimed: “This image is so life-changing. It’s so amazing to me to see a different perspective of motherhood. Society ALWAYS sees the image of the mom in labor and delivery and the mom who’s laying on the surgical table with a pic of the baby nearby after a C-section. I’ve never seen an image of a mom receiving her baby from a surrogate but, there’s no difference in all 3 of these pictures. You look just as excited and happy as i did in all 4 of my afterbirth pics. This is so dope and thanks for sharing this different perspective. The world NEEDED TO SEE THIS!❤️❤️❤️❤️ peace and love and most importantly, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY MAMA GAB!”
Happy Mother’s Day Gabrielle.
