Ariana Biermann may be a teen these days, but her mama, Kim Zolciak-Biermann, is looking back on the days when she was just a baby. The Don't Be Tardy mom took to Instagram this week to post a warm and inspiring message about being a young single mom and how "scared out of my mind" she was after she welcomed her daughter into the world 17 years ago.
"I had her at 23 [years] old and became a single parent close to her delivery! Scared out of my mind ... I can't help reflect back and Thank God for the strength to keep going!" Kim wrote alongside the throwback snapshot of her and a baby Ariana. "I'm living proof that if you keep on believing miracles can happen!!"
When Kim welcomed Ariana into the world, she was already a mom to Brielle and had this message to other moms out there doing it on their own. "To every single mother in this world I know it's not easy. Quite frankly I don't know how I did it, but keep believing and achieving! Dreams do come true!! Nobody could stop me from achieving my dreams and nobody can stop you! STAY STRONG!" she wrote, throwing in her signature sense of humor: "P.S I have great hair yes and no this isn't a wig. This was 16yrs ago. For sure have the good hair gene."
Of course, Kim didn't stay a single mom. She wed Kroy Biermann in 2011, welcomed four more kids into their happy family, and the rest is history.
