We've witnessed Kandi Burruss' eldest daughter, Riley Burruss, blossom into a beautiful young woman on The Real Housewives of Atlanta — and now she is officially 18 years old. (We can't believe it either.)
Riley celebrated her first official step into adulthood on Saturday, August 22, and she commemorated the major milestone with her most glamorous and grown-up photo shoot to date. For her special birthday shoot, Riley served up several fierce looks with the help of celebrity stylist Jeremy Haynes, hairstylist Jodie Rowlands, and a very special makeup artist: mom Kandi.
In one of the snaps, Riley debuted a sleek short bob, which she paired with a beautiful ruffled teal dress, glowing makeup, and a bright red-orange manicure. "18!! Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. I’m so thankful for all the love I received on this special day!" she wrote on Instagram.
Proud mom Kandi also shared several pics from Riley's fab photo shoot, including one of herself and Riley (who was seated on a throne and rocking dark red wavy hair). It looks like Kandi isn't the only one in the house with makeup skills either: The ATL singer made sure to note that Riley did her own makeup for this particular birthday slay.
Below another stunning IG post of Riley, Kandi wrote, "My baby girl is 18!!!!!!!! @rileyburruss you are my first born, my bestie, my big baby. Intelligent, beautiful, stubborn, determined, & more. I’m proud of the young woman you’ve become! You’re an adult now but you’re still my baby & I will always be here for you no matter what! You know I’ll do whatever it takes just to make you smile. I love you!"
Cue all the feels.
