Kandi Burruss candidly shared on April 14 how much she missed her oldest daughter Riley Burruss, who is currently attending college at New York University, by sharing an upload of Riley’s glam shot. In the video, the 18-year-old is seen chatting with her makeup artist and hairstylist, who goes by name The Glam Father.

Riley responded, “I feel amazing.”The mother of three revealed, in the caption, that she would get “excited” whenever her daughter would post on Instagram because it helps her feel close to Riley. “I’ve been missing my baby girl @rileyburruss since she’s been in school at NYU! I get excited just seeing her on the gram. Thanks @theglamfather & @georgemiguelc for getting her together today. 😍”

Although the pair recently saw each other, the last time Riley made a public appearance with the entire family was during the holidays when they posed for Christmas photos. Many fans couldn’t help but gush over how much Riley has grown while also commending Kandi on raising a well-rounded child.
