Gabrielle Union Celebrates Daughter's Birth via Surrogate in New Children's Book: 'My Love Letter'

Kaavia "is his little princess. It's been a really cool journey," she adds. "And it's interesting because Kaav arrived before Zaya's transition. Zaya had identified as gender nonconforming. And so we really worked a lot on unlearning so much of what we thought we knew about identity and gender expression and gender norms. We put so much effort into raising her differently and not trying to predetermine who she was."

When Zaya transitioned this last school year, "we were much better equipped to receive our other daughter," Union says. "So it's been a beautiful journey."

Now Union finds hope in "the willingness to learn and adapt," she adds. "Not just what I've seen of our own family, but what I'm seeing in the world."
