Gabrielle Union is opening up about becoming a mom to daughter Kaavia at the age of 46.

The "Bring It On" actress, now 50, recently shared a video to Instagram in which she responded to those who ask her if it's worth it having kids later in life.

Union maintained that Kaavia, who turns 5 in November, came at the "right time" for her.

"But for me, I became a mom at the right time because I was healed and I had committed to healing eternally, so I didn't pass all that generational trauma onto Kaav," she continued. "I wasn't in a place to even take care of myself [before], much less our little miracle, so for me it's absolutely worth it."

Union, in concluding her video, called Kaavia "the best thing that's ever happened to me."

The "Being Mary Jane" actress shares Kaavia with husband Dwyane Wade and is stepmom to the former NBA star's three children from a previous marriage. Additionally, she is helping Wade raise a nephew for whom he is a legal guardian.
