Gabrielle Union Defends Kissing Infant Daughter On Mouth – Even Oprah’s Crew Got Vaccinated!
Gabrielle Union is officially a “mama bear.” The actress wants the world that since giving birth to her baby girl Kaavia James Union Wade via surrogate on November 8th – she and husband NBA superstar Dwyane Wade have taken extensive precautions to ensure their bundle of joy stays healthy. However, social media trolls will troll.
Gabrielle posted a sweet Instagram video kissing her sweet baby girl while the song, “Kissing Game (I Like the Way)” by Hi-Five played in the background. Several followers commented on how unsafe it is to kiss a newborn baby directly on the lips. The new mother politely gathered them with this comment:
“Hey guys I appreciate all the concern about kisses on the mouth and labored breathing, I am bless enough to have a nurse here with us while at work. Kaav is healthy and I dont even touch her without washing and sanitizing myself and everything and everyone that comes in contact with her. No visits with sick folk and even all of Oprah’s crew got whooping cough vaccinations and current on all vaccinations to be in our home. If you think I waited this long and went thru all this to put my baby in harm’s way…you got anothing thing coming.”
Both Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade have had a tough road to parenthood. Long before Gabrielle suffered several miscarriages while attempting to carry she and her husband’s child, Dwyane endured a painful custody battle for his sons with his first wife. Gabrielle and Dwayne opened up to Oprah Winfrey about how they decided to opt for surrogacy instead.
Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union’s episode of Super Soul Sunday airs Saturday, December 8, 2018 on the OWN Network.
