Watch Zaya Wade Backflip Her Way Into Your Heart

Zaya Wade flipping.

She's already shot her first magazine cover, debuted a new hair color, and now (like any other teen) she's outdoing her siblings on Instagram. Welcome to the life of Zaya Wade!

After launching her Instagram in March, Zaya Wade, the child of Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union-Wade, has been sharing more and more of her life with the public. From just hanging out around the house to dancing, the teen has been making the most of her quarantine. For her 13th birthday in June, her family hosted a medieval-themed fete. Zaya's own look incorporated the colors of the genderqueer flag. This marked the second time she had incorporated those colors into a look on her Instagram grid. But in her latest post, Zaya is showing off some other skills.

In the clip, her brother Zaire cuts nine cartwheels in what seems to be a park.

"I want you to do eight cartwheels," he says to his sister before her turn. "But every two do a flip. So you gotta do four flips, eight cartwheels." It's a scene pulled from Bring It On if we've ever seen one. But Zaya is unfazed.

While she doesn't do the requested four flips, Zaya does more than enough pulling off a lineup of cartwheels and flips before dropping into a split. The crowd, as they say, goes wild.

Zaire's attempt at replicating the stunt ... not so much. I'm not sorry but this is and forever will be a Zaya Wade stan zone.
