If you’re a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fan, you might recall the early days of the show when alum Taylor Armstrong made waves, had breakdowns and even lavished her only daughter with a birthday party worth five figures. We haven’t seen much of Taylor or her little girl, Kennedy Armstrong, since the blonde beauty left the show after season 3 — but her tiny tot has grown into a vibrant and beautiful young woman.

In late January, the 48-year-old posted a photo of her daughter celebrating her 14th birthday, much to the surprise of fans and followers everywhere. “She’s a big girl now,” the proud mama captioned the pic on Twitter. “Birthday-best birthday party ever! My love Kennedy.” Taylor also included the RHOBH hashtag in the post.

Shortly before that post, Taylor shared another photo of Kennedy from when she “was a baby” — and it’s obviously pretty crazy to see how much she’s grown since the snapshot.

Needless to say, fans and followers were pretty shocked at the ~transformation~. “She is so big now!!!! Beautiful just like you,” one user gushed, while another added, “OMG, how is she that old already?!? She’s beautiful!” A third follower hinted at the hardships both mother and daughter have gone through over the years. “Always wondered how she was doing,” they wrote. “You did the right thing getting out of it and allowing you and her to grieve and live! Time flies!”

It seems as though the teenager has become incredibly well-adjusted after father Russell Armstrong’s suicide in 2011. According to Bravo’s Daily Dish, Taylor gave an update on her daughter in March 2019, stating that she’s turned into a typical teenager, emoji usage and all.

At the end of the day, the former reality star thinks her new marriage to attorney John Bluher will set a good example for her daughter after the abuse Taylor suffered at the hands of her late ex-husband. “I hope that now she’s seen what a healthy relationship looks like,” Taylor said. “My biggest fear is the fact that I stayed as long as I did could perhaps influence her relationships in the future.”

Either way, Kennedy is growing up to be a fine, upstanding young woman.
