In December, Union revealed that Kaavia was "pretty ahead of schedule" when it came to checking off her major milestones. "Her being able to count, her being able to identify certain words on the page, her being fully potty trained and asking for privacy," Union told E! News as she listed Kaavia's accomplishments, adding that her daughter's "language skills are off the charts."

She also revealed that Kaavia had no problem working the television and even "figured out the remote before Mom did!"

Union added, "Not sure what milestone that is in what book but for Kav, it's been a game changer. She could turn on the TV herself and find her very specific YouTube videos that she wants to watch. Yeah, she's pretty dang dynamic."
