Mama Joyce may have taken issue with what she perceived as Todd Tucker’s lack of work ethic early on in his relationship with her daughter, Kandi Burruss (for what it’s worth, Todd strikes us as a very hard worker), but there’s no way the protective mama can have the same gripe with Todd’s daughter, Kaela.

The 18-year-old, who recently moved to Atlanta to live with her dad, Kandi, and stepsister, Riley, graduated high school only months ago, and she’s already dreaming big! Kaela took to her Instagram on August 4 to make a big announcement. With an explosion emoji as her caption, Kaela wrote on the photo, “Clothing line coming soon look out for that..super excited.”


Honestly, we had no idea Kaela was interested in designing clothes, but we give her major props for chasing her dreams, and at 18 no less! The teen’s friends and Instagram followers seem super psyched about Kaela’s new venture, with many of them commenting on the photo and offering their congratulations.

From what we can tell, Kaela hasn’t shared anything else about her clothing line just yet, but she’s certainly making the most of her time in the A. Last week, proud papa Todd shared that he ran into Kae at work, and in one of her Instagram photos Kaela is sporting a production pass for Trey Songzs’s Revolt tour. Talk about workin’ hard for her money!

Interestingly enough, a clothing line seems to be one of the only things Kaela’s stepmom Kandi hasn’t attempted to start yet, but we’re sure the Real Housewives of Atlanta star will be willing to offer some advice and helpful hints when and if she asks.

Are you surprised that Kaela is starting a clothing line? Weigh in below!
