TLC Chilli's only son Tron Austin graduated from college yesterday, and she couldn't be prouder. The happy mom shared a sweet tribute to her son on Instagram, whom she encouraged to go after his dreams now that he has graduated.


In the post, the happy mother-and-son duo were overjoyed by the diploma that they were holding in their hands. Narrating the scene, Chilli says "So this just happened...." before they all started to celebrate.


"My TRONSTER just graduated yall!!!! @timeflybye I am soooooo proud of u. All of the hard work of many late nights has paid off!!! Now, on to the next beginning of ur life and as always n forever I'll be right there with you! I love u to pieces n then some! #bachelorofscience @fullsailgraduate #myminimee #twinning#thankyouJesus"

In her caption, Chilli claims that her son is here mini me, and that their resemblance is striking.

Likewise, Tron decided to pay tribute to his mom as well, as he posted his own graduation Instagram post.


"HARD WORK and DEDICATION remember you can do ANYTHING you set your mind to. First off I wanna thank my Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Thank you to all my family for supporting me and believing in me ! Thank you to @fullsail for having me and all my mentors! As far as I’m concerned my life begins right now GODSPEED from now on next step music industry take over let’s gooo"

While his mom did not indicate the field he wished to enter now that he's graduated college, Austin made it clear that he was all set to join the music industry. In his caption, he wrote: "From now on next step music industry take over let's gooo", which finalizes his goal of following in his parents' footsteps.

Chilli, or known as Rozonda Thomas in real life, was in a relationship with producer Dallas Austin. She gave birth to their son Tron Austin on June 2, 1997. However, they eventually broke up and Thomas began dating Usher from 2001 to 2003. Since then, Chilli has focused on becoming a mom to her son, working on projects that would land on her lap as an artist.
