Gabrielle Union rings in stepdaughter Zaya Wade's 15th birthday with extravagant camp-themed party


Gabrielle Union threw her stepdaughter Zaya Wade an extravagant camp-themed birthday party, complete with a bonfire and tents, on Sunday.  

To mark her husband Dwyane Wade eldest daughter turning 15, the 49-year-old actress spared no expense transforming their backyard into the perfect place for her teen and loved ones to celebrate.

At one point, Zaya’s dad and older brother, Zaire, who Dwyane also shares with ex-wife Siohvaughn Funches, hilariously attempted to toss the guest of honor into the pool.

Zaya, however, managed to narrowly escape their grip as they playfully tried to swing into the water before fleeing to safety. 

She seemed to enjoy their prank, which made her smile after they posed in front of a wall with her name on it in massive letters.

In addition to incredible photo ops with white, blue and brown balloon arches and twinkly lights, guests enjoyed cake, featuring a graphic that read: ‘Camp Zaya.’

Union’s three-year-old daughter Kaavia James appeared to be having a blast at her older sibling’s bash as she adorably sat in a basket near friends and family.

The little girl wore a light blue tulle dress and twirled around in a group photo with her parents, Zaya and Zaire, 20, who is a guard for the Salt Lake City Stars. 

The professional basketball play never strayed too far from Zaya’s side, and even was recorded giving her a big hug before she blew out her birthday candles.

Last year, Zaya’s parents threw her an unforgettable ‘Zaya on Wheels’-themed party, which let her ring skate all day with friends and family.

Two weeks ago, Zaya, who came out as transgender in 2020, opened up about receiving ‘a lot of hateful comments’ about how she ‘should grow my hair out long or fit into a certain version of femininity, even though that’s not true at all.’

‘That kind of advice is just trying to break you, but don’t let it,’ she said during a joint interview with Union for the Dove Self-Esteem Project.
