Riley Burruss Turns 18 – See How Proud Mom Kandi Showered Her with Love on Her Special Day

Kandi Burruss celebrated her look-alike daughter Riley's birthday with a sweet Instagram tribute and she is clearly having a hard time believing that her daughter is officially an adult now. 

On August 22, Kandi Burruss was all about celebrating her first-born daughter Riley's 18th birthday. The singer could not physically be with her daughter to celebrate the milestone, but she definitely made her day with a heart-touching tribute. 

In an Instagram post, Burruss shared a photo of her grown-up daughter posing in a yellow mini dress. Riley looked stunning as she flaunted her curly hair and flashed a bright smile.

SHOWERING HER FIRST-BORN WITH LOVE

Alongside the photo, Burruss penned a touching caption for her daughter and shared that she makes her a proud mother. She wrote:

"You're an adult now but you’re still my baby & I will always be here for you no matter what! You know I'll do whatever it takes just to make you smile. I love you!"

In a snapshot that followed, Riley sat on an ornate chair as Burruss leaned on to her. Looking at the photo, it is hard to believe that they are not sisters! 

Last year, Riley was ecstatic when she got accepted into NYU, her first-choice college.

BIRTHDAY IN QUARANTINE

Calling her the heir to her throne, Burruss wished Riley a happy birthday again. She also mentioned that Riley did her own makeup in the picture. 

Prior to Riley's birthday, the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star was feeling sad because she would still be in quarantine at New York University on her special day. 

In an Instagram post, the reality star asked her fans to send her daughter love to lift her spirits. Although she did not get to celebrate her birthday with her family, she did have a party prior to it before heading off to college. 

Towards the end of July, Riley officially graduated high school in her school's football field. The ceremony was held in a safe way with the graduates standing six feet apart from each other. 

RILEY'S FUTURE GOALS

Last year, Riley was ecstatic when she got accepted into NYU, her first-choice college. According to her, she had been planning to go there for years. 

At the time, the 18-year-old said that she wants to be an entertainment lawyer, and moving to a big city with myriad opportunities was just what she needed.
