Little Ariana Biermann is so wise beyond her years that sometimes we forget that Kim Zolciak’s middle daughter is only just 11 years old. We’ve watched Ariana grow up before our eyes — first on Real Housewives of Atlanta and now on Don’t Be Tardy — and we’re happy to report that the always upbeat tween started seventh grade today, August 11. Way to go, girlie!
Proud mama Kim shared Ana’s major milestone via Instagram, captioning a photo of her not-so-little girl, “My beautiful @arianabiermann first day of 7th grade!! Where does the time go!! We love you Ana!! Have the best first day ever #yourheartisincredible.” In the pic, Ariana is standing in front of the family’s Atlanta mansion in a super adorable first day of school outfit consisting of a bright pink and white striped dress, a cute denim jacket, and stylish slip-on sneakers.
Like Kim alluded to, it seems like only yesterday that Ariana was just a little girl and it’s hard to believe she’s starting seventh grade already. While we’re sure Kimmie is thrilled for Ana, we also know that the mom of six has a tough time watching her kiddos grow up. But hey, at least she’s still got four more at home!
Speaking of those little ones — KJ, Kash, and twins Kane and Kaia — we’re betting they’ll all miss Ariana as well, as Kim has stated in the past that the 11-year-old loves to help out and play with her younger siblings. Kim was right when she said Ariana has an incredible heart!
