Kandi Burruss has always been open about the fact that her ex — and father of her 9-year-old daughter Riley — has never been very involved in the young girl’s life, but it looks like things may be finally starting to change.

Around this time last year, Kandi tweeted a photo of an adorable Riley in a sparkly pink dress, and wrote, “Riley is going to the father daughter dance with her dad. Things r moving n the right direction!”

Before the duo left for the night, Kandi tweeted another pic (left) and wrote, “Riley & her dad are heading out!” 

Given that Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers saw during Season 3 how upset Kandi was about her ex’s distant relationship with Riley, we’re so happy to see that he’s finally stepping up and supporting his little girl.

Kandi hasn't mentioned her ex in recent months, but it's possible that she just wants to keep their relationship private.

What are your thoights on Riley forming a relationship with her dad?
