The mother-daughter duo then go back-and-forth with positive affirmations that promote an appreciation of their “full lips,” “beautiful skin,” and eyes.
In addition to teaching Kaavia to love and appreciate her features, Gabrielle also highlights that she should appreciate her intelligence, sense of humor, silliness, and courage. However, she was sure to also tell her daughter that it’s alright to be “scared sometimes.”
After Gabrielle Union had Kaavia acknowledge that she is “worthy,” the 4-year-old wrapped the affirmations exercise by declaring, “I’m so beautiful!”

While On the subject, we should note that Gabrielle Union’s step-daughter, Zaya Wade, recently addressed a major life lesson that she learned from her.

Zaya went on to add that the Bring It On star also taught her that “beauty standards are arbitrary” and “don’t mean anything.” Additionally, Gabrielle Union made it a point to teach Zaya that “being [herself] is the best technique out there.”
“She tries to teach me that beauty standards are arbitrary and that they don’t mean anything. They don’t matter any more; what people thought was the standard is not. And just that being myself is the best technique out there.”
