Gabrielle Union celebrates Dwyane Wade's birthday with daughter Kaavia

Dwyane Wade's 42nd birthday celebration was a slam dunk for his family!

On Friday, Gabrielle Union shared scenes from her husband's big day, as he celebrated turning another year older earlier this week.

On Instagram, the actress, 51, uploaded shots of the NBA great blowing out his candles and dancing with their youngest daughter Kaavia. He was also serenaded by the 5-year-old while surrounded by loved ones, Miami pals and former teammates.

Among the adorable moments was a clip of Kaavia giving it her all on the microphone, as she sang a touching rendition of "Happy Birthday" for her dad. At the end of the video, Wade bent down to give his little one a kiss as the whole party applauded.

"We’re so blessed to spend year after year with you 🎂 @dwyanewade," Union wrote in her caption.

The family kept things dressy yet cute and coordinated during the birthday outing, with Wade and his wife rocking matching tan coats as Kaavia wore a sweater with a star pattern.

Others in attendance at the celebration were Wade's eldest son Zaire, 21 and Wade's sister, Tragil Wade. Close Miami pals like Rick Ross and former Heat teammate Udonis Haslem were also there to celebrate, according to an Instagram upload from Wade himself.

"Celebrated my Jackie Robinson year in Miami with family and friends! Year 42," he wrote.

Elsewhere on his Instagram Story, the retired basketball player shared shots of Haslem giving a speech — as the longtime teammate was in town to have his jersey retired by the Miami Heat organization this week.

"He has not wasted a second of his 42 [years]," Haslem said of Wade while speaking at the party. "And that's inspiring to me. I know I'm older and you're younger, but you inspire me, bro. You have not wasted a second. You showed me what it means to be your best version. You showed me what it means to believe in yourself. You always believed in yourself, and I thought you was f------ crazy."
