What’s in a name? In honor of National Daughters Day, The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Cynthia Bailey explained the sweet meaning behind 22-year-old Noelle Robinson’s moniker.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Sharing a throwback Instagram photo of her and ex Leon Robinson decked out in NBA apparel while holding their daughter, on September 25, Cynthia wrote, “FUN FACT: did you guys know that Noelle spelled backwards is Leon? We just added the extra 'le'.”

In the comments, Leon chimed in, “Our little sweetheart [Noelle Robinson],” adding a red heart emoji. Noelle, for her part, posted five of her own sparkling red heart emojis, telling her parents, “I love you guys so much.”
After all, Cynthia and Leon’s co-parenting teamwork is something the RHOA daughter has praised her mom and dad for over the years. In April, for example, Noelle took to Instagram to share a heartwarming tribute to the former couple. "Co-parenting at its finest. Love you guys too much," she wrote.

Earlier, Noelle told The Daily Dish that she was “super young” when her parents separated. “I don’t even remember it," she noted.

Meanwhile, Cynthia also opened up about her split from Leon, as well as their commitment to raising their daughter together, in an earlier interview. "I knew that the moment I found out that I was pregnant by Leon, he was the kind of man that I could parent and co-parent with regardless of whether or not we stayed together in a relationship," she explained, adding, "He is Noelle’s dad, and he will always be a part of my family."

More recently, Cynthia updated fans on what Noelle has been up to lately, including acting, getting her life coach certification, and working as an influencer. "I love that she's keeping all of her options open and just really trying to figure out what she's gonna be the happiest doing, which I think is great,” the RHOA alum said in an interview with Bravo Insider.

In fact, she’d even love to start a podcast with Noelle one day. "I love that whole mom-daughter perspective with us,” Cynthia added. “Anything that happens to me, she's the first person I call and [ask], 'What do you think about this? What do you think about that?' When they offered me to do Celebrity Big Brother, [to her] I was like, 'Do you think I should do it?' And she was like, 'Well, I don't think you're gonna win, but you should totally do it.' She was like, 'It's memories.'"
