Porsha wrote in the caption of her January 23 post, which included a series of stunning photos of her mother over the years. She continued to share details about her mom who is also the loving grandmother to Porsha's daughter, Pilar Jhena adding, "Thank you for being such an example of a beautiful person with a big heart and also a fierce business woman!! Watching my mom start her journey as a young entrepreneur open the first 24 hour childcare center in 1984, in Atlanta, taught me so much when it comes to being resilient and walking in faith!!"

Porsha went on to add, "She went on to become one of the most successful early learning center owners and care for hundreds of children before I later retired her early in 2018! Over the years my mother has become my best friend and my biggest supporter! Thank you for all you have done in helping me with our pooh Pilar! I was so blessed that you left your home and let me kidnap you for two years lol You deserve the world and more … I thank God everyday that I was raised by a Queen like you!! The best [is] yet to come. Love you to the moon and back!"

Porsha also shared a gorgeous snapshot of Diane posing with a lovely bouquet of roses. "Happy Birthday Mommy," she captioned the photo, adding, "64 Hundred bills for my fabulous 64 year old QUEEN. Beautiful spirit!!!"

In addition to the birthday love, Porsha couldn't help but notice the similarities between herself as a child with her mom, and her daughter Pilar's relationship with Porsha. She shared a side-by-side capture, which included a throwback photo of Porsha with her mom, and one of Porsha with Pilar for comparison.

"Pilar [and] I are Diane [and] Porsha all over again lol," Porsha wrote in the caption, adding, "I was always stuck to my mommy like glue! I used to like for her to pick me up and I would lock my ankles around her hips in pure joy. Happy 64th Mommy!!!!! 1/22/58 (( I get it from my momma))." RHOA's Kandi Burruss commented on the adorable pictures with birthday wishes for Porsha's mom, writing, "Happy Birthday Ms. Diane!"
