Kandi Burruss Shares a Throwback to Riley at Age 5 — See How Much She’s Grown! (PHOTO)

Isn’t it crazy to think that we met Kandi Burruss on Real Housewives of Atlanta a whopping five years ago? The former member of R&B group Xscape joined the Bravo reality show in its second season in 2009, and since then we’ve watched her grow from single mom raising daughter Riley, to so-in-love fiance to Todd Tucker. And it’s not just Kandi we’ve seen change before our eyes: Riley has gone from adorable little girl to growing and gorgeous pre-teen!

These days, the 11-year-old is taller than her mama. However, when we were first introduced to her, she was more interested in dolls and Disney than shopping and boys. But do you remember what Riley looked like way back in Season 2?

Kandi took to her Instagram today to give us a refresher on how much her daughter has changed. The photo, taken the year before Kandi signed on to RHoA, shows a kindergarten-aged Riles when she was missing her two front teeth. How cute is that?!

“#Tbt of my baby @rileyburruss when she was about 5 at @derekjhair's old shop. Isn't it cute when kids are missing their teeth in the front? Lol!” Kandi captions the pic.

Though she’s much younger, we can still see the Riley we know and love today in this five-year-old. Just look at that sense of style with the sequined dress, and her blown out hair! This girl was a fashionista in the making.

Can you believe how much Riley has grown? Tell us in the comments below.
