Kim Zolciak-Biermann sent Instagram users into overdrive Tuesday when she uploaded a photo of her first-grader son looking as if he’s outgrown his booster seat.
Many fans thought so and pointed it out under the former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star’s photo Dec. 11.
“My baby @kashbiermann on the way to school this morning! He is such a BIG BOY he is only 6 🙈 he melts me ❤️ his heart is unreal 😍😍 #HairKing,” Zolciak-Biermann captioned the picture.
Several folks in the comments section were stunned at how big Kash is at just 6-years-old and wondered if he still needs to be in a booster seat.
“😮 he’s a big boy! I think you can get rid of that booster seat now, lol!”
“He probably doesn’t need a booster anymore! He’s huge 😊”
“I was like.. who is that grown man?! And then I saw the booster seat… then I reread lololol”
“He’s only 6?? He looks like a 12yr old in a booster seat. @tmbxo.”
“I’m not sure what happening it look like Benjamin Button in a booster seat😰”
“He definitely does NOT look 6 or like he needs that booster 😂 The next Biermann football player 🏈 Your twins are beautiful little humans👫”
“I don’t think he needs a booster seat?” one user wrote.
“@jphe4311 see where the seat belt falls … he needs a booster babe,” Zolciak-Biermann responded.
Another person asked, “In a booster seat?”
“@hwest62 Yup!!!!I’ll keep them in one until they are 18😂 ” the “Don’t Be Tardy” star joked.
Then, one fan swooped in to defend the mother of six for keeping her second oldest son in a booster seat.
“Bravo for keeping him in that booster seat Mama! I know so many parents who don’t have their kids sit in anything because they are ‘too old’ and it kills me every time because that’s not what matters! And he is so handsome, gonna be a heartbreaker ❤️”
Georgia law states that every child who is under the age of 8 must either be in a booster seat or a car seat that is fitting for their age and height. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends a booster seat be used for children between 4- and at least 8-years-old who are between 40-80 pounds and less than 4’9” tall. Additionally, the booster seat “should be used with lap and shoulder belt; lap belt should rest across the lap-never the stomach.”
