"My Ally is graduating today from Sotheby's in London with her Master’s Degree!! I am so proud of you and truly blessed to have you as a daughter!!" Jill shared on Instagram alongside throwback family photos. "How time flies!"

When The Daily Dish spoke to Jill last year, she explained why Ally decided to pursue a degree in art. "My Ally is doing phenomenal. For people who don't know, she graduated from Vanderbilt University a few years ago," Jill recently told The Daily Dish. After graduation, Ally tried out a few jobs "and she wasn't really satisfied," mama Jill noted. So it was then that she suggested that Ally go back to school.

"And I told Allyson, we're fortunate enough that I can afford to continue her education, and I said, 'If you want to go back to school and pursue something that you really love, [you should].' And [we] talked about 'What is it?'"

"What she always loved every year, Ally and I would go to Art Basel in Miami starting about eight years ago. It became our thing," Jill continued at the time, noting that Ally always helped her pick out art and together they would attend dinners and showings. So Ally decided to pursue her Master's Degree in contemporary art at Sotheby's Institute of Art. "Ally has an incredible eye for art. That's all I can say. So when she becomes an art dealer, check her out. She's graduating top of her class."

The trip to England not only allowed Jill a front-row seat to Ally's big day, but it also gave the mother-daughter duo the chance to hang with Ladies of London star Juliet Angus.
