The post features a never before seen photo of Karlee as a baby, which was placed alongside a recent picture. The side by side placement of the two images showed that the young model still has the same smile she did as a child.
In her caption, Kay gushed over her daughter, whom she described as her "partner in crime." The doting mother also added:
"Never a dull moment when you are around. And that's what I love about you, always joking and making bad days turn better."
In response to her mother's touching tribute, Karlee took to the comment section where she wrote: "Thank you, mommy! I love you more than anything in the world."
In 1998, when Malone reached out to his kids, Daryl also revealed that it might be hard for them.
The post also garnered several reactions from fans who flooded the comment section with sweet happy birthday messages.
Kinsey shares Karlee and three other children with former NBA star, Karl Malone. Apart from the couple's kids together, Malone is also father to twins, Cheryl and Daryl, whom he welcomed with high school sweetheart, Bonita Ford.
Although Karl was not initially involved in the twin's life, he reached out to them when they were 17, and the trio forged a relationship. While speaking to ABC News "Good Morning America," Cheryl said:
"He learned from what he did, and we moved on, and I don't wanna go back...I mean, we forgive, but we don't forget."
In 1998, when Malone reached out to his kids, Daryl also revealed that it might be hard for them, but believed he and his sister would be able to let go of the past.
Karl retired from basketball in 2004, and presently, he enjoys spending time with his children and grandchildren.
