Aoki Lee Simmons just celebrated a major life milestone as she turned 21 recently!

Baby Phat founder and owner Kimora Lee Simmons honored her daughter with a sweet Instagram post, as People reported. The birthday post featured many pics of the model and Harvard graduate strutting her stuff on the runway, childhood memories, and a recent photo of the mother and daughter posing in front of Aoki’s birthday cake. The cake design included a Vogue cover with Aoki posing in front of a staircase and highlighted her latest accolades.

“My baby girl is 21!!! 😍🎂Mama loves you so much and I’m so super proud of you! I know you’ve been through A LOT and God has kept you and us all covered. From graduating from HARVARD at 21(!!!) to paving your path in New York City modeling! You’re doing it all! It’s all paying off for you and that is evidenced by the exciting news coming that we will soon share! 👀🤫🤐 we’re all right here beside you baby riding for you through it all! ❤️ I got you forever! Cheers to 21! 🥂 #beautyandbrains,” the proud mother wrote.

In June, Aoki graduated from Harvard with a double major while still balancing a modeling career.

“20 years old, and we out!✌🏽*inhale* Congratulations to my Mom, my Grandma, my Great Grandma, my sister (a fellow baddie with a BRAIN nobody how low-key she is about it!) to the international network of aunties, sisters, and friends, the Evelyns, Kyokos and Kimoras, the women who could not always get their degrees right away but who made damn sure we got ours, This one’s for you, I must dedicate this degree to all the leading ladies in my life, because who am I If not their daughter, granddaughter, sister and friend? Who am I without who came before and beside? We go TOGETHER. Women, period. Thank you for being here with me, crying tears of exhaustion, anxiety and joy with me, congratulations, thank you so much, & in the immortal words of JAY-Z, we on to the next one,” she wrote in that post.

Simmons previously defended her decision to pursue modeling while attending Harvard University, which she graduated from earlier this year.

“I love it, and I think we should normalize liking something. You don’t have to do what you’re immediately good at,” she said at the time. “You can be good at something and not want to do it forever, and you can be bad at something and still pursue it.”
