In our minds, Kandi Burruss’ daughter Riley is still just a little kid, but in actuality the sassy pre-teen is growing up in front of our eyes. You won’t believe how mature she looks these days!

Kandi’s daughter, who will be 12 next month, recently wowed her mom and other family members with her musical talents, and that’s just the beginning of Riley’s artistic streak. On July 17, Kandi shared one of Riley’s new headshots on Instagram. “Aww look at my beautiful baby girl @rileyburruss!” the happy mama wrote. “She took head shots with her performing arts camp students at #AGI. #mybabyisgrowingup #proudmom.”

In the stunning photo, Riley’s hair is slightly curled and falls to her chest; we even spot a touch of light pink lipstick highlighting her picture-perfect smile. The red top Riley is wearing fits her like a glove and really makes the sweet headshot stand out. Who wouldn’t want to book this reality TV princess?



We also love how proud Kandi is of her not-so-little girl, and from what we can see, she has every reason to be! In addition to Riley’s artistic talents (first singing, now acting too?!) we’ve always gotten the impression that she is a kind, well-adjusted kid.

She may tend to shy away from the Real Housewives of Atlanta cameras, but Riley did stand up to Mama Joyce on the finale of Kandi’s Wedding when Joyce started arguing with Kandi just hours before the RHoA star was set to walk down the aisle. Mama Joyce admitted she hated seeing Riley upset, and promptly kept her mouth shut. Well done, girl!
