    Gabrielle Union Just Revealed The Sentimental Meaning Behind Her Daughter's Name

    Meet Kaavia James.

    It's been a full week since Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade announced the arrival of their baby girl and I still can't get over it.

    And my what a week's it's been! Filled with adorable photos of tired daddy Dwyane...

    ...and a mom-mug that had Gabrielle on the verge of tears.

    But the icing on a perfect week of IG baby fever came when they finally revealed their daughter's name. Everyone, meet Kaavia James Union-Wade.

    On Thursday, Dwyane Wade posted a throwback photo of himself getting a tattoo in China and that tattoo just so happened to be his daughter's name.

    Some fans wondered why they chose a traditionally masculine name like "James" for her middle name.

    Thankfully, Kaavia's momma stepped into the comment section to clear up the confusion. The names James was inspired by Gabrielle godfather.
