Brielle Biermann has literally grown up on Bravo, and now Kim Zolciak‘s oldest child has turned 21. Which is insane considering that Kim joined Real Housewives Of Atlanta when Brielle was like 10! Also, contrary to reports that she broke up with boyfriend Michael Kopech, they actually celebrated her milestone birthday together.
“Happy 21ST to my favorite person!! I’m blessed to be able to grow with you & I’m excited to see where our future takes us. I love you so much and I’m so thankful for you, @briellebiermann,” Michael declared on Instagram, attached to the above photo of Brielle holding “21” balloons. Kim added, “ITS OFFICIAL @briellebiermann is 21!!!! I can’t believe it!! Happy Happy Birthday Hunni Bunni!! We love you so much!!!! #Brielles21”
Michael wasn’t alone in praising the Don’t Be Tardy star. Kim posted a series of pics from Brielle’s childhood and several gushy posts about her growing up.
“Dedicating today to my beauty @briellebiermann the very person that gave me strength to keep pushing!! I had Brielle at at almost 19, I was so excited I could barely stand it but I was a nervous wreck at the same time! My side kick, My heart, My strength, My pride and joy, My best friend, My daughter YOU amaze me!!” Kim exclaimed. “We made it Elle I always knew we would You are such a blessing to this world! Thank you for making my ‘job’ as your mom an easy one! I truly mean that from the core of my being! I made it through the night last night barely, no sleep worrying about you .. I guess some things will never change no matter how old you get!”
Kim and Brielle have lived what seems like a lifetime through Bravo cameras (and it’s often seemed like Brielle’s had to grow up too fast). From the early days of wigs and being friends with NeNe, to Brielle’s total transformation into an adult and reality star of her own. Brielle was even adopted by her stepfather Kroy Biermann on the family’s spinoff. Now Brielle has followed in her mom’s footsteps and made a career out of reality TV (and creating controversy!). It was recently revealed that she earned $120,000 for season 6 of Don’t Be Tardy. Since she’s moving out of Kim and Kroy’s house, it’s been rumored that Brielle may be embarking on a spinoff of her own.
In a photo that appears like it was taken around when Kim first joined RHOA, she wrote, “Still can’t believe you are 21 @briellebiermann I feel like I took this pic of you yesterday!”
“last day of being 20,” announced Brielle, wearing a bathing suit from Michael.
“20? don’t know her!” Brielle shared.
Edited to add: Looks like Kim got Brielle a customized gun for one of her gifts.
