When Dwyane Wade is with his daughter, he never misses anything. Just one week prior, NBA great Dwyane Wade posted a touching moment from his playful makeover by Kaavia James on Instagram Story. Wade’s five-year-old daughter recorded a series of videos where the three-time NBA champion is seen sporting black eyeshadow on his nose.

Yesterday, Dwayne again posted multiple stories of spending time with her daughter. In his stories, we can see Kaavia doing makeup for her father. She was putting lipstick (lipgloss) on him. Dwayne enjoyed participating in it as a father. It was a wholesome moment with the kids. On social media, her parents, Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union, regularly post sweet family photos and highlight their close bond with Kaavia.


Dwayne Wade captioned, “I love being a girl dad”. In the video, Dwayne mentioned that he had done her daughter’s makeup as well before revealing Kaavia’s green eye shadow-covered face. The father-daughter pair then recorded themselves laughing so hard that their bonding moment over makeup got even funny.

In the following video, Kaavia can be seen using a pencil to draw on her face while her father waits patiently in the chair while wearing white sunglasses, suggesting that eyeshadow wasn’t the only cosmetic she wanted to use to give him a makeover.
