Gabrielle, 49, plays Zoey Baker, mom of a blended family of 12 kids in the Disney remake.

She wore a two piece black and white Altuzarra crop top and long skirt set. Her daughter Kaavia wore a matching outfit with black slippers.


Zaya, Dwyane’s child with his first wife, Siohvaughn Funches, was equally stylish in a floral Valentino shorts set, featuring a bandeau top and strappy heels. Zaya accessorized the outfit with a white Valentino handbag.

Zaya was noticeably taller at the premiere, and observers noted that the teenager has grown at least 3 inches since October 2021.

Biological males usually go through growth spurts of 3-5 inches a year during puberty, beginning at age 12 until age 16.

Zaya came out as male-to-female transgender at age 11. Since then, Zaya has been celebrated by LGBT+ groups who are pushing schools to teach gender equality in grades K-12.

States such as Florida and Georgia have passed “Don’t Say Gay” laws prohibiting the teaching of LGBT+ subjects in grades K-3.
