Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are so convinced their baby daughter will be famous that they’ve planned an empire around Kaavia James's snarky "Shady Baby" Instagram commentary.

"Shady Baby" is a nickname that appears in hashtags in the photo captions on Kaavia’s popular Instagram page. The 4-month-old has amassed a following of 536,000 Instagram users.

The proud Miami Heat star took a photo with his daughter to commemorate the baby reaching the 500,000 milestone on Instagram.

The power couple filed for trademark applications for "Kaavia James" and "Shady Baby" in March, according to The Blast. The applications were filed after the couple started a loan out company in the baby's name.

According to documents obtained by The Blast, the enterprise will include merchandise such as t-shirts, mugs, haircare products and jewelry bearing Kaavia's name and the "Shady Baby" logo.

Gabrielle is the CEO of Kaavia James, Inc., while Dwyane is the CFO of the company.

The couple will eventually place their daughter's name on baby products, diaper bags and baby bibs.

Question: will you buy Kaavia James "Shady Baby" products for your children?

    Team Too Much. Very Kartrashian-like.

  • SpiceGirl

    Welp....If I was in the same position....I don't know if I would do it differently. Nothing wrong with securing your childchildren's future.

  • Phillybruh

    ehh depends on what and how cute the product is.

  • T Willis

    Cici take note, this is how you build a brand centered around your family.

  • Anonymouse

    This baby is just an accessory to them. A means to make money. Very sad. Children are WAY more than that!

  • T Willis

    ? I really think she’s going to grow up to be exceptionally beautiful.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Kaavia aleady has that resting b!tch face and she's saying: I know I know I have two dumb-arsed parents but I had no choice in the matter.

  • Ni Ni

    Do the other kids have all this going on? What about the outside baby, does he(she) have a trademarked name or merchandise too? ?

  • T Willis

    Beyoncé, KKK clan etc all do it.

  • Kimocha

    Whew chile!, That baby is her daddy's TWIN!... But I don't get the "Shady" part in Shady Baby!... Sounds shady to me!

  • LYRICS

    Just let her be a baby and grow into herself.....

    On another note, someone pls tell me y Door Dash suck monkey nuts and I'm just eaing lunch NOW!!!!!!!!

  • WinterIsComing

    That poor outside baby.

  • Lady_Elle

    She looks just like Dwayne!
    if the products are good... I would buy!
    They don't get a pass on "shady" products!

  • WinterIsComing

    Beyonce rarely posts her children

  • jazmine

    It’s not gon work out like they think. Don’t make me say why. Y’all know

  • Coffee1st

    It appears as if they are using this child as a trophy, simply something to help build & maintain some type of relevancy.
    Who trademarks their baby's nickname? Only dry, severely dehydrated, thirsty ezz parents.
    I'd put my money on Gabby being the mastermind of this foolishness.

    I don't know why not. That baby looks more like most black folks baby than the celebrity babies y'all love to applaud

  • Phillybruh

    Outside momma should have worked harder to stay inside

  • bigtyme

    all I hear is Gabrielle in those posts. And I think she got in front of the internet trolls by saying the baby is giving “shady looks”. I wanna like it...it’s just something off about the whole thing

  • Connie

    I peeped what you did there

  • Coy little wink

    Cute baby and idea...they not getting my coins tho. Very Joanne the scammerish...

  • Phillybruh

    I feel like Sheldon cooper right now, I was talking about how cute the baby stuff was..I don't talk about folks baby don't need that karma right now..lol

  • iWasteTime

    If I bought a Onsie that had Olympia Jr doll on it, I'll support Kaavia self too.

  • Trace da Ace

    Well I aint mad at them.....their (her) first baby....after so many miscarriages and heartache...Gabby is just doing what some folks like to do....dote on their baby. He happy, she hella happy...baby seems happy....what is the problem??? I know alot of first time mothers doing the most with their babies....but that is what we do....we want to give our kids the world and show the world our kids......yall know how I am about dem babies!! lol

  • 100milesperhour

    Baby looks over it & she just got here. No I won't be buying, I don't like her attitude.

  • Yardgirl

    Girl my auntie was just saying how her lunch was late and the food did "pull up"!! I wept at pull up.

  • Mikayla

    Ignorant. Stupid. Exploitative. Leave that baby alone, damn. Let her be a baby in peace. Why are they doing this? Why are they so desperate for attention? They don’t need the money. I’m surprised Gabby is exploiting her child after all she went through to get one.

  • Phillybruh

    I have yet too meet a baby that didn't look over it most of the day...lol

  • Yardgirl

    I'm not gonna lie, I love Kaavia's IG page!!! Her facial expressions and her mother's captions are everything. This world is ugly and for a few minutes every day or so, this baby makes me smile.

    (to her credit, Kavia looks like she not here for all this they doing, ROFL!)

  • KcoolMuziq

    Gabby(whom I worked on the DMX movie "Cradle To The Grave" with) deserves all the happiness she gets. She has been through hell & back.

    Hopefully the name is not already taken like Bey & Jay's daughters name "Blue Ivory" which was already trademarked before she was born . Unfortunately it made them miss out on millions added to their already billion dollar fortune.

  • LeeSeeCee

    That baby's cheeks are everything!! SO stinking cute...

  • Li-Wright

    I don't blame them for capitalizing on their baby. The Kardashians do it; Serena Williams just put her baby's clothing on sale at Poshmark - $$ka-ching$$.
    All the celebs are doing it. Good start towards a college fund. :)
    Cute-ass baby.

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    Adorable baby.

  • LYRICS

    LMAO!! Auntie just gave me a big joke!! Ah nuh lie!!! Just sen'on the food!! LOL! Worse they were around the corner!!!

  • T Willis

    The other poster is implying that Gabby is using her daughter as an accessory because they applied for brand licensing, and I’m saying Beyoncé did the same when Blue was born. Applied for licensing in fashion etc etc the same as gabby

  • Yoni7

    I thought it was Blue Ivy, yes?

  • Coy little wink

    They didn't miss out..that lady has an event planning business the Carter's need to curtail their intended market

    What God has for you it is for you. They can both operate ?

    that's one ........nevermind child

  • Topic Influencer

    I like her IG page.

    That will be all

  • WinterIsComing

    Beyonce doesn’t use her children as accessories. Only similarity is the Ivy Park clothing line. Otherwise Beyonce shields her children from the likes of us most of the time, while Gabby is shoving this Benjamin Button faced baby in the public eye every chance she gets.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Got nothing nice to say .... so let me mozy on out here ?

  • MsPam

    Yes a hundred years old, she doesn’t smile a lot.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Yep Benjamin Buttons

  • Faithz

    Alrighty then.

  • Maxx

    The baby is adorable. She is making a face like she is concentrating on what is happening in her diaper at the moment. She will no doubt be famous & wealthy. Looks like Gabby is already arching her eyebrows! lol

    Kaavia looks like she gonna slap the ish out of her kindergarten teacher, on the first day of school, just to show her who’s the boss.

  • JazzyBossyJen

    Bwhaha ???

  • Ihatemoney

    True! My daughter was bald for almost up to a year... A Jamaican woman came up to me and said, "She is going to have beautiful hair"

    She is 6 now and it falls to the middle of her back.

  • Phillybruh

    They probably patented the name as most famous people do of their children before other people do. I doubt they have any plans for any of the things mentioned in the article just took the name so no one else could capitalize on it.

  • MsPam

    She looks like that lady grandma Daisy

  • MsPam

    My question is who would we that name?!

  • Maxx

    They are just making sure they set her up for success. I wish I had a fat bank account ready for me worth millions once I get out of high school & a lucrative business to boot! More black families NEED to think like this.

    QaiQai is funny!

  • abby500

    Another blogger said that Kaavia is Dwayne’s jump off baby and gabby agreed to just adopt or assume the daughter as hers to save face (again). Not sure if I believe it, but I know gabby treats the baby like a prop and like a source for giggles. Likes she’s a joke. She almost never posts a heartfelt or deeply touching pictures. Always a joke. Now she’s launching a brand based on the Big Joke aka Shady Baby. Cold and calculating

  • Dowoop

  • Maxx

    She is setting up her child for success. Something more black families need to do, but no we just want to say let a child be a child & then when they are still being a child when they get grown they blame others instead of themselves. I wish my parents would have helped me find financial freedom & helped me build an empire from an early age. Kudos to them!

  • Mikayla

    No, they do not — More black families NEED to think about giving their children a head start for school, and spend time reading to their children, at this baby’s age. Putting her out there as some attitudinal black mammy, without her consent, is borderline abuse.

    She could start a little business (if that’s what she wants to do) later in childhood. By her choice. They’ll still have money.

  • ATL White Guy

    The baby is cute, but i kinda feel some sorta way about celebrities trying to monetize their babies. All these Instagram pics and such seems like they are setting up their kid for future narcissism. But then the celebrity if questioned about it will say 'keep my family out of it'

  • Renee Bee

    Ooooh! That's a cutie pie.

  • Mikayla

    I didn’t want to come off as making light of Gabby’s situation but I see none of her genes in this baby... None. I was wondering if the eggs ???? got mixed up.

    Lol @ granny baby. But still, Beyoncé applied for brand licensing for all the same purposes that KKK & Gabby did. And if Bey’s kids were cute in any sort cute way, we’d have a separate IG for her kids too lol

  • Bonita

    I've never gotten a maternal vibe from her. Not saying that you can't have a deep love for a child that you don't carry, but for those of us that develop the natural maternal instinct due to carrying a baby, there's an unexplainable connection and bond that runs so deep, that those who've never carried their babies will never understand. So this missing element may be the cause of that disconnect you've noticed.

  • leapyearpisces

    and for the record I think its cute she look like a little grandma. it gives her so much personality. and you TOO would have a constant snarl and grimace on your face and would look like you stay taking names and kicking azzess if you knew you had to deal with Gabby the rest of your life.

    Exactly. If you go to the baby's Instagram. You can tell that Gabby think she is a real life toy. You said it BEST, she is just gonna be extra with her until Kaavia gets old enough to tell her to stop, because I think Kaavia gonna be way more laid back than Gabby and aint gonna be with the shizz.

    I love how they lavish so much love and attention on their precious baby girl; but I hope the other children, even the one he had outside the relationship, don’t feel left out. Right now it seems like Gabby is trying to make it all about their child together, as if she is Dwayne’s only child. Maybe it’s just me though...?????

    Gabby is a narcissist. So only her child is the most important.

    Shady Baby was prolly created to hit back at negative comments that some people make and or continue to make. She gonna hit back with her own shade via her parents prolly. Other than that, I can’t imagine what a “shady baby” does.

    “Shady Baby” is not cool AT ALL! Names are important, it’s evident Gabrielle Union-Wade stlill has some “brown girl” issues!

    Why not “Sunlit Baby?”

    I guess she’s coming out with a kids fashion (very stylish) line, or some kind of merch!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The term "shady" is in reference to the shady comments Gabby attributes to the 4-month-old. Not the baby's skin tone.

  • Allergic2dumbstuff

    Thanks for the link. -- I've never been one of those people who thinks a person falling is funny, but the way Brandy took her sweet lil time to get up and put her shoes back on. Well I'm just going ? and ? on that.

    That's actually a comment that I was gonna make, but I scrolled down and realized you saw it first.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I agree, really sad! She seems to have gotten stuck in adolescence, very immature! Drugs or booze is a possibility!

    Not having a childhood comes with a price, and all the other angst that CAN come with being a woman, single, and unhealedcwounds (Monica)!

    As a 90’s music icon, in an industry that has basically erased black R&B female artists, it’s painful, I’m sure!

  • Solstice
  • Rhyme and Reason

    I’m not a big Gab fan, but I would believe it’s quite traumatic having another woman carrying your child!

    All pregnancies aren’t the same (so hard, some easy), anything can happen, the surrogate could slip and fall getting out of the tub, or experience health concerns that often come with being pregnant!

    She had stress, a different kind than some other women, but I can’t imagine dealing with a surrogate! I would be so paranoid!

    Reading is fundamental and I am sure she will get the best eduacation. Building wealth guarantees she will be able to provide for herself. Reading a book does not.

  • KcoolMuziq

    What do U have against Gabby? What has she ever done to U? DWade & Gabby are one of the highest profile black couples in the business, Most anyone in the industry strive on publicity.. It's no different than any other industry that have high profiles. But U call her a narcissist?

    This is her life!

  • Kay J

    I don't like Gabby, she didn't fool me with new age nice persona bs. Of all the mean bitches she takes the cake. Plus it's so shady how they alienated baby mama number 1, called her crazy and all that .

  • Malificent

    I know. It’s weird people feel comfortable posting their precious jewel and leaving them so exposed to this ugly world.

  • Jethro

    It's what Republicans do. "Uppity Blacks" must be made to pay. They couldn't bring down the Obama's, so I guess they're taking whatever than can get, now.

  • Malificent

    It’s because she finally got her own. All the other babies don’t matter as much plus they’re grown.

  • Malificent

    So funny I just posted that. Great minds think alike.

  • WhoKnew

    Very nice way of putting it cuz chile...

  • the guest

    I don't have to type it. Thankfully you did.

  • WhoKnew

    It's a lot of work being a mean ole bytch but Gabby does it so well. I remember seeing her do an interview and she said she was a mean girl. I'm like is that why your ass can't act your way out of a white cotton sock?

  • the guest

    Why not a clothing line for Xavier? I don't understand why it's socially acceptable for them to cast a child he made before he married Gabby as a second class citizen.

  • Mikayla

    “eduacation?”

    Education is much more than reading a book. Building one’s mind is priceless and with the same resources her parents have, would indeed build wealth. Education is a more likely path to wealth than making a silly # out of her as a newborn. Hopefully this jacket they’re putting on her, which you support, works out well and suits her taste. You’re also naive to think this nonsense is going to generate “wealth.” They’re making that baby look cheap, ironically.

  • Mikayla

    Sweet little innocent baby getting this attitudinal jacket on her, and she’s so new in the world. It’s so unfair to her.

  • Dowoop

    Well anyone with common sense knows the baby didn't write the post but I guess common sense isn't so common.

  • Coffee1st

    There's always that one comment that makes me look up from my screen, try to process what i just read, lower my head, ask yt jesus "why?" then log out my dam self.
    You, my dear, are the Commenter of the Day.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Perfect!

  • Mikayla

    Common sense is more common than intelligence... and reading comprehension. I hope they make sure this precious little baby girl has more depth than spewing stupid catchphrases like “common sense isn’t common” and “reading is fundamental.”

    You completely missed my point. Yes, sweetie, everyone knows the baby didn’t write the posts.

  • Coffee1st

    Sandra, you got some Roses that need to be put on punishment. We bout to ALL go to hell foolin round with them.

  • Ebony Starr

    I think the Instagram thing is cute, but I'm not sure about product line. I follow Caidyn, Olympia Ohanian (Serena's baby), but I don't want to wear their names or faces on clothes. Hopefully they plan to go in another direction. Still, they will be competing with other celebrities with babies and trademarks and product lines for the babies.

  • Mikayla

    Narcissistic mothers are a doozy... a lifelong trial. I think you’re right about Gabby and I think she’s already competing with her daughter, hence portraying her as a “shady,” side-eyeing, neck-rolling black woman — an image Gabby never had. I hope the baby grows up to be prettier than Gabby.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Ok, I didn’t get what or why she would name or coin her child “shady baby.”

  • Mikayla

    Exactly, her life. Let the baby become herself. She might not want fame and a baller lifestyle at any cost, including her dignity, which they are already compromising. She might want to go to Yale, like Aoki Simmons.

  • thatgirlmel83

    I am a bit put off by this whole fictitious personna projected unto this gorgeous baby girl by her mom. I said her mom because her father's body language seems supportive but if he had it his way he would veto it but goes along with the script to make Gabby happy. To me it's high class violation of this child sense of self (which is not even formed but yet she is being told who she is)...., she is made the butt of some quirky jokes at her expense...some may find it cute and funny but something about it just rubs me the wrong way. It was cute pic 1 but then after pic 3 you begin to realize really how they view her....sorry issano for me. Instead of her being completely enamoured over the preciousness and the cuteness of her baby she busy making fun of her child. I can't seem to put my hands on it other than I find it quite strange....sure hope she has a sense of humor when she gets older. Just wouldn't portray my kid in that light....

  • Justice For TM

    I feel the same. He don’t care about that test tube baby. I get phony vibes from her. Why would any woman want to conceive because your “husband” had a “break baby” ? Seems there is a disconnect

    She is a phony fake who hates the skin she is in and her husband had a baby on her. I know a few females just like her; talk the same, act the same and wear the nappy a** hair the same. He don’t care about that test tube baby. SN: she played the heck out of the”Breaking In”movie.

  • NeverSurprised

    More proof that social media is the devil's playground. All of these so-called "parents" constantly exploiting these babies and plastering their images all over social media, instead of spending quality, PRIVATE time with their children. I find it a disgusting bastardization of what "family" is supposed to mean.

    A mother is supposed to love and protect her baby, not try to think of ways to make money off of her. This Union bitch turns my stomach.

  • jusbecsuse

    Damn am I the only one who adores this little angel and get a pure kick out of the Shady Baby posts? Truthfully I really hope they continue with the adorable posts and pictures. Yall muthafuckas are depressing as f@#k.

  • jusbecsuse

    From what I read, the break baby is around alot and Gabby spends time with him and the other boys as well. I'm guessing the mom doesn't want pics of the boy on the internet much and D wade and Gabby are granting her wishes. But who knows, it's just word on the curb?????

  • jusbecsuse

    I guess because she can't conceive she's viewed as less of a woman or invalid....

    I love the way Mariah, also, generally keeps her children out of the public eye. And then once in a while we see the children at events, dressed beautifully, looking poised and privileged. Back when they were born, an interviewer asked him about them going into entertainment, and Nick said he’d love a scientist. The woman Mariah doesn’t know also values her children’s privacy. Blue is also polished and cultured.

    The people talking about the Gabby’s low class hashtag BS securing wealth are not knowing. Kaavia (yucky name) will have access to the best education and opportunities. Mark my words, she will resent this Ebonic slang jacket they put on her infant identity.

    To each their own I guess, but I personally couldn’t put my child on display for the world to scrutinize and the child has no say in the matter. My daughter for the longest time, didn’t know how to smile in school pictures so it always looked like she was sneering or like she smelled something stank... those pictures are hilarious but I know if I posted those online she would be humiliated even though she’s an older teen now and she was a young child then.
