Riley Burruss’ 21st Birthday

The NYU student took to Instagram on her official 21st birthday to share a series of photos of her posing in a denim jacket and coordinated shorts.

She referred to her birthday as “Riley’s 21 Savage birthday” and “Rilez Savage Year” in the caption of the post. 

“Love you always baby girl!” her mom wrote in the comments. Riley’s pal, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City kid Brooks Marks, wrote “OMG SERVE” and “This is next level” in two separate comments as well. 

Riley kept the celebrations going by taking a trip to Turks and Caicos with Kandi, her stepdad Todd Tucker, her stepsister Kaela Tucker, her cousin Patrick Dallas, and three other friends. 

“[Twenty-one] can you do sum for me,” Riley added in the caption of her vacation post on Instagram. 

“Love to see [Riley Burruss] and [Kaela Tucker] together,” Todd wrote in the comments on the post. “Happy Birthday.”

Kandi Burruss’ Post for Riley Burruss’ Birthday

In addition to sharing comments on Riley’s first birthday post, Kandi shared a series of photos of her oldest on her own Instagram feed. Kandi reposted a few of the images from Riley’s birthday photo shoot, and she also shared several throwback pictures from when her daughter was a baby.  

“Happy birthday to my first born [Riley]! I can’t believe my baby is 21. I love you so much!!!!” Kandi began her caption. “You’re beautiful, intelligent, strong, [and] a leader.”

Kandi’s post wasn’t the only way she showed her love for Riley on her special day. The songstress gifted her daughter a gold Rolex watch during their trip to Turks and Caicos.

The Xscape singer then opened up about her daughter’s future. 

“This is the beginning of your next chapter. I know you will do amazing things,” Kandi added. “Always know that even though you’re officially grown, you will always be my baby [and] I will always love you [and] have your back! Let’s make this next year your best year yet!”

Riley’s next chapter could even be taking the music industry by storm. 

“I want to work in the music industry, on the business side,” Riley told Brooks Marks during a chat for In the Know by AOL back in October 2022 before sharing how Kandi inspired her. “So, of course, she played a huge role in that, just growing up, seeing her do music, and then also work on the back end.”
