Kandi Burruss had a blast spending Grammy weekend in Los Angeles with her “mini me.” But the latter is not so mini anymore! 

How to Watch

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

In a February 11 Instagram post, The Real Housewives of Atlanta mom shared photos of herself and her daughter Riley, who’s now 20 years old. And if you’re wondering where the time goes, Kandi is right there with you. 

Kandi’s photos show her and Riley celebrating the Grammys in style. Kandi posted the pics as a slideshow set to Brandy’s “Best Friend.” When you press play on the post, prepare for a barrage of jaw-dropping looks. 

For the awards ceremony on February 5, the Xscape singer wore a stunning cerulean gown by Raisa Vanessa. Her not-so-mini-me wore a sequined minidress with a chain halter neck — and her outfits just kept getting better. 

In everything from a logo-printed Fendi skirt suit to a strapless black gown and a structural yellow blazer, Riley looked like quite the sophisticated lady. Her proud mama took note. “It brought me so much joy to be able to take my mini me to LA for Grammy weekend!” Kandi captioned her post. “[Riley Burruss] has grown up!”

It’s hard to imagine that the stunning young woman in Kandi’s pics was just 6 years old when she made her RHOA debut! (Check out the video above to see some priceless vintage clips of her over the years.)

Riley is now a third-year student at New York University. And though she’s still hashing out her post-graduation plans, she just might follow in her mother’s musical footsteps.

In a recent interview, Riley revealed that she’s interning at a record label. But don’t expect to hear her singing on a hit track.

“I want to work in the music industry, on the business side,” she clarified in the interview. “Of course, [my mom] played a huge role in that, just growing up, seeing her do music, and then also work on the back end.”

In a recent Instagram pic, Riley showed herself at a recording studio, where she was seated behind a mixing board. Kandi gave her stamp of approval, hopping into the comments with a heart-eyes emoji. 

Riley’s little brother, Ace Tucker, is also making moves. Last December, Kandi’s husband, Todd Tucker, revealed that their 6-year-old son was at work on a movie set. “My son is a superstar,” Kandi commented. Apparently, that superstar blood runs in the family.
