Gabrielle Union is going viral on Friday and for good reason! She covers Self magazine wearing a two-piece Mara Hoffman bikini, but not only that, her 13-year-old stepdaughter was the photographer! Gabrielle shared a long, heartwarming post praising Zaya Wade for her amazing accomplishment. It's certainly not every day that a 13-year-old lands a photo shoot for a magazine cover! In addition to praising Zaya, Gabrielle shared some additional photos from the shoot that weren't selected for publication.

At 47-years-old, Gabrielle is flawless and had her perfect bikini body on display. Zaya captured the photos in the family's backyard and Gabrielle looked healthy, vibrant, and full of confidence.

She shared the following caption along with a photo slideshow that included several covers for the issue.

Beyond proud of @zayawade shooting her 1st cover. She is a tremendous artist/writer & I'm so happy everyone gets a glimpse of what she can do. Seeing yourself through a child's eyes is quite illuminating & im grateful we got this opportunity from @selfmagazine "The safety of assimilation was an illusion. “You cannot price your way out of, educate your way out of, move yourself away from racism, anti-Blackness, discrimination, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia,” she said. “All of those things exist no matter how successful you are. No matter how you speak. They exist. So this idea of teaching our children to constantly be shape-shifting to make themselves more palatable or less scary for people who are committed to oppressing you anyway, no matter what you do, I rejected it. I started to reject that.” 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤 @carolynkylstra
