The Married to Medicine daughter recently announced she will attend Florida A&M University — the same school where her mom, Dr. Heavenly Kimes, received her bachelor’s degree. Heavenly celebrated the big news on Instagram this month, when she posted a video of her daughter walking through the HBCU campus.

“Thank you God ! I am proud to announce that my baby girl [Alaura] will following in my footsteps and be spending her next four years at My Alma Mater THEE #1 Public HBCU: Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University,” she captioned the post. “Thank you to my family and friends for continuously pouring into and supporting us! See you on The Hill…”

Heavenly confirmed the high school senior will pursue a biology pre-med degree, indicating Alaura’s plan to enter the medical field just like her parents. After graduating from FAMU, the Married to Medicine mom earned a doctorate in dentistry from Meharry Medical College, which is where she met her husband and Alaura’s father, Dr. Damon Kimes

Alaura reflected on her new life chapter in a May 2 Instagram post.

“With 11 days left until my Highschool Graduation Ceremony [and] less than 2 months until I embark on my college journey, I want to take the time to express my gratitude for my parents, family, friends, and teachers for molding me into the person that I continue to become!” she wrote. “Over these next four years, there’s no place I would rather call my HBCU than The Highest of Seven Hills! I also heard the pretty girls go to FAMU.”

Since joining Married to Medicine in 2014, Heavenly has proven to be Alaura’s biggest cheerleader. The mother-of-three has used her platform to promote Alaura’s music and YouTube projects and has even enlisted the teen to help run her online business, Heavenly Beauty.

“Alaura has a big role in this beauty supply store,” Heavenly said in the Married to Medicine Season 9 premiere. “I wanted to make sure that she had a business that she could go into… She runs the social media, she helps with the website. She’s bossy, she’s confident, and — unlike her mother — she’s very fashionable.”
