Actors Gabrielle Union and Zach Braff star in the Disney+ remake of “Cheaper By The Dozen” which premiered on Friday, March 18.

Union and Braff star as Paul and Zoey Baker, the interracial parents of a large blended family of 10 kids.

Union, who also executive produced the movie, said she normally doesn’t do family-oriented movies, but she changed her mind after reading the script.

“When I first read the script … I wanted to be a part of something that our whole family could watch together and, you’ve seen some of my work, I don’t do a lot of family-friendly type of stuff. So, I felt not only was it the perfect time for my own family but I think it’s the perfect time for all the families who want to see different kinds of folks and different kinds of families reflected and celebrated on screen.”

Union, 49, who shares daughter Kaavia James, 3, with husband Dwyane Wade, 40, said she couldn’t manage a large family in real life.

“[The kids would be like], ‘Mom went to the store, and in six years she hasn’t returned!'” she joked.

“I think we are at max capacity at the Wade-Union household and that’s why Zoey Baker is a fictitious character!”
