Meet Shereé Whitfield’s Kids, Tierra, Kairo, and Kaleigh, and Her Grandkid Mecca

Kids by Shereé? Read up on everything to know about the RHOA cast member's family.

By Sophie Vilensky

To quote one Shereé Whitfield: “A mother knows her children like the back of her hand." When fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta first met Shereé and her family during Season 1 of RHOA in 2008, the entrepreneur was a single mom at the tail end of a long divorce. But flanked by staff and planning a major party, she still made time to take her daughter Kaleigh out for a pedicure.

How to Watch

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

"Is she doing a good job baby girl?" the Bravolebrity asked her youngest as her toes were primped.

These days, the cast member and her not-so-little ones are older, wiser, and just as glam. Scroll to learn all about Shereé's three beautiful children and new granddaughter: Tierra, Kairo, Kaleigh, and baby Mecca.

Shereé Whitfield's Daughter Tierra Fuller

Because she initially chose not to appear on air, fans didn't catch sight of Shereé's daughter Tierra Fuller until Season 3 of RHOA. Nevertheless, the Tennessee State University graduate shined when she finally appeared onscreen to show off her first Atlanta apartment.

"People are always shocked to know that I have a daughter Tierra's age, but I had her when I was really young," Shereé explained when introducing her oldest in Season 3, Episode 3. "Her dad was a teenage boyfriend of mine."

In a 2012 interview with GlamourTierra opened up about her RHOA experience.

"I was only on the show a few times, but the city of Atlanta isn't that big, so I get a lot of recognition — especially the first season that I was on," she said. "Anytime I went out, people would come up to me like, 'Oh my God, you're Shereé's daughter!' One time I went back to Nashville for the TSU homecoming, and this older lady came up to me and was like, 'Can I get your autograph?' People still give autographs? I thought that was weird."

Tierra also mentioned that watching the show makes her feel protective of her "role model" mama.

"If I'm watching and something goes down, I'll send her a text, like, 'Wow, why did you two start arguing? Did that really happen?' And then she'll give me the background."

Today, Tierra is a digital platform specialist at Cox Media Group and a digital creator who hosts a podcast and runs a blog, both called A Little Kiss and Tell.

Oh, and she's still an incredibly proud daughter.

"SHE DID IT!!!! I AM SO PROUD OF THIS LADY AKA MY MOMMA!" wrote Tierra in a September 2022 Instagram caption following her mom's She by Shereé fashion show. "In the midst of all the hate, shade, drama, lack of support, fear, you still pushed through to give the ppl what they’ve been asking for and waiting on! Haters are always gonna hate… bitter Betty’s. You kept a great team of supporters, family, and friends in your corner to keep encouraging you to push through. I know this big weight that has been on your shoulders for years now, is FINALLY lifted."

Shereé Whitfield's Son Kairo Whitfield

Born in 1996, Kairo Whitfield took after his NFL player father, Bob Whitfield, when he began playing college basketball at Morehouse College.

Since graduating in 2020, Shereé's second-born has been making music and modeling and, during Season 14, it was revealed he had an impressive new gig working for Tyler Perry.

"Long hours, but it's cool," Kairo told his family during Episode 3.

In July 2022, the model and his girlfriend, Alina, welcomed their baby girl, Mecca Joie, making Shereé a "Glam-Ma."

“He is so hands-on, and I love it that I raised him to be that type of person,” Shereé said during Season 15 Episode 6 of RHOA. “Even though when he first told me, I didn’t feel like he was ready, his actions are showing me that he’s more than ready to be a dad. Kairo is doing amazing. He really is.” 

Given his mom's nature, Kairo's proclivity for parenting is unsurprising.

"Well, my mom, she taught me to be very independent. She makes her own decisions," the athlete shared during a May 2021 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. "She's very helpful, caring."

Shereé Whitfield's Daughter Kaleigh Whitfield

Kaleigh has certainly grown up since that fabulous pedicure in Season 1 Episode 1: Shereé's youngest daughter graduated summa cum laude from Howard University in 2021 — another in the long list of her children's accolades for Mom to brag about.

“So proud of the young lady you are becoming," wrote Shereé in a November 2022 birthday post, adding that her daughter is "amazing."

While Kaleigh is fairly private (she offers a peek into her life in once-a-year Instagram posts), fans adore any updates they can get.

Shereé Whitfield's Granddaughter Mecca Joie

During Season 15 Episode 6 of RHOA — which marked baby Mecca's first major TV appearance — Shereé opened up about finding out Kairo was going to be a dad.

“Kairo walks in and he’s just standing there, and I’m like, ‘What’s up?’ And then he finally said, ‘I have a baby on the way,’” she recalled in a confessional. “Alina was already four months pregnant, and so I totally felt like I was behind preparing for the baby. I don’t even think it really, really resonated or hit me yet.”

Though Mecca was born in July 2022, the She by Shereé owner didn't announce her granddaughter to the world until Spring 2023. Since then, she's been showing off her role as a proud Glam-Ma.

"U gotta wear shades when ur future is bright," Shereé captioned an adorable July 8 Instagram photo of the baby girl. "OMGGGGG MECCA TOO COOL," added Tierra in a comment.
