On Thursday, the actress, 47, shared a slideshow of sweet family photos in celebration of Thanksgiving, which shows her posing alongside her husband Dwyane Wade, their daughter Kaavia James and Wade’s 12-year-old son Zion Malachi Airamis.
“Grateful ❤❤❤ Happy Thanksgiving good people,” Union captioned the post, which shows the family posing at the foot of a staircase.
Wade, 37, is also dad to sons Zaire Blessing and Xavier Zechariah.
“To all the friends and family that have my back and all the friends and family I’ve never met who show love and support when everyone is looking and when no one is looking… All praise, gratitude and thankfulness,” Union added.
The heartwarming post comes one day after Union broke her silence on her controversial departure fromAGT.
Union sent a message to her Twitter followers and thanked them for their support during this difficult time.

Union’s message on Twitter came several hours after her husband, who she married in 2014, publicly defended her in a series of tweets on his own account.
The NBA legend, 37, began his thread by writing, ” ‘Men lie, Women lie, numbers don’t.’ Over this past year I’ve been approached by many people saying that my wife @itsgabrielleu is the main reason they’ve started watching #AGT or that they love her insight and sincerity on the show.”
“So when i got the news that my wife was being fired—my first question was obviously why!?” Wade continued. “I am still waiting on a good answer to that question. But if anyone knows @itsgabrielleu or have heard of her you know she’s an advocate for our community and culture.”
So many tears, so much gratitude. THANK YOU! Just when you feel lost, adrift, alone… you got me up off the ground. Humbled and thankful, forever ❤

In a third tweet, Wade said he was proud of Union for “standing up for what she stands for” and practicing what she preaches to their 1-year-old daughter Kaavia.
“As proud as i were of her being selected as a judge on #AGT— I am even more proud of her standing up for what she stands for and that’s US,” he wrote, before adding, “So [cheers] to you @itsgabrielleu on not losing sight of the lessons we’ve talked about teaching our daughter and for kicking ass while you were on that platform. Number 1 judge on one of the biggest shows in the world.”
News broke on Friday that Union and Julianne Hough — who joined the season 14 AGT judging panel back in February, replacing spots vacated by Mel B and Heidi Klum — would not be returning for the show’s upcoming 15th season.
