We always thought that Kandi Burruss' daughter Riley was the spitting image of her mom, but now that she's growing up, it looks like she's surpassing her mama in the height department. Riley just turned 14 years old on Monday, and she's already taller than her mom. Don't worry, Kandi "can't believe it" either.
Riley celebrated her birthday in style on Sunday with a brunch full of her favorite food, dim sum. Kandi's husband Todd Tucker, his daughter from a previous relationship Kaela, and their baby Ace all joined Kandi in ringing in Riley's big 1-4.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta daughter also received some very enviable birthday gifts fit for a young lady like herself: diamond stud earrings from Todd and a necklace featuring the characters "R&B" encrusted in diamonds from Kandi.
Not only is that piece of jewelry perfect for Riley since it spells out her initials, but it's also a nod to her family's musical legacy since her mom is a Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, after all. Kandi kept the birthday wishes going on Riley's actual date of birth. "Just dropped off Riley at school and had to say happy birthday to my baby. She's my baby. She's growing up," Kandi said while jokingly wiping away tears.
Riley isn't Kandi's only kid growing up these days. It looks like her son Ace will be a little man before she knows it, too.
