‘Aging Backwards’: Toya Wright Leaves Fans Swooning Over Her Youthful Look After Posing With These Celebrity Friends

The New York Times bestselling author and “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” reality star Toya Wright, who recently changed her Instagram handle to reflect her maiden name, Toya Johnson, is having fans believe she has found the fountain of youth. 

The 36-year-old took to Instagram Saturday, Jan. 11, to upload a photo with “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reality star/friend Kandi Burruss and guest cast member Lena Huggar. 

The trio celebrated Huggar’s 36th birthday because she “didn’t do anything for her birthday,” on Monday, Dec. 23, according to Wright. 

“@Kandi and I decided to sing happy birthday to @lenahuggs last night since she didn’t do anything for her birthday,” Wright wrote for the caption. “She always supports everyone, so we had to show our girl some love. Thank u @myfairsweets for making the cake for us last,” she added.

While fans acknowledged Burruss and Wright’s sweet gesture to Huggar, they also noticed how young and beautiful Wright looked in the photo.

Rocking a half-up, half-down hairstyle, Minnie Mouse sweatshirt, tights, and sneakers, Wright had fans thinking she was in her teens. 

“Toya look so petite… niceee 💖.”

“Toya is gorgeous, aging backwards.”

“Toya, you’re so beautiful love me, some Toya ❤️❤️.”

As fans gushed over Wright’s beauty, they also thought Huggar resembled Beyoncé in the trio’s picture. 

“I thought she was Beyoncé for a minute @toyajohnson.”

“ I thought that was Beyoncé 🦽.”

“😳She looks like @beyonce‼️”

“I thought that was Beyoncé on the right 😍.”

So how does the mother of two keep her skin flawless for a youthful look? Johnson told her secret to Twitter in 2015. “A lot of people ask me what do I use to keep my skin looking flawless,” she posted to her Twitter account. 

“Dermera is my skincare secret. It keeps me glowing,” the New Orleans native added. 

This isn’t the first time that Wright left fans talking about her youthful appearance. When her daughter Reginae Carter, whose father is rapper Lil Wayne, uploaded a picture of herself at a movie theater on Jan. 7, where she’d gone to watch the film “Underwater,” fans believed that it was Wright in the picture.

“U look just like YOUR Moma! I had to zoom in to know that was u! Smh!!! Honestly, up until just now, u have always looked more like your Dad! A beautiful combination of two beautiful, spirited people!”

“I thought you were your mom @toyajohnson, definitely your momma twin.”

“Definitely had to do a double-take, looking identical to your mom♥️ girl. I can’t tell who is who. ”

The fact that Wright is 15 years her daughter’s senior but people think that Carter and her look alike says a lot about the mom’s ageless beauty.

Wright and Carter share the same look and a tight bond. In a 2017 Cosmopolitan interview, she mentioned how she and Carter are close. 

“I’m not only her mother, but her friend,” Wright said. “When I first had Reginae, I had so much support from my family and, of course, her Dad, Wayne. The advice I would give to any parent is always be open with your children. We have been very blessed!”
