Soon after the sweet post went live, many friends and fans took to the comment section to also wish Zaya a happy birthday.
In a previous interview for ET, Wade and Union discussed their parenting, more precisely how they have always encouraged their kids to be their ‘authentic selves.’
‘We’re very proud, and I think what we are most proud of is what we are trying to do with them. You know, we try to push them [to be] their authentic selves. We are not trying to make them wear a mask or to be someone that they are not… we have done that since Zaya was 3 years old and we will continue now that Kaavia is 2 years old. We try to push them to understand, in this house, in this yard, these gates, there is freedom in here.’
He went on to explain that it’s ‘Because life is hard enough. And we understand that, so it is our job, inside our home, to [make sure] that they feel loved, they feel seen, they feel heard, and feel they can truly be themselves.’
