Taylor Armstrong shared a couple of then-and-now photos of her daughter, Kennedy, on Instagram over the weekend in honor of the child’s 17th birthday. And, right away, longtime fans of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills were taken aback.

As Taylor, who joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County last year, said that “time flies” in her tribute post, her many online followers shared their thoughts on the matter, with many expressing shock at just how grown up Kennedy now looks.

“My baby girl’s 17th birthday… I cannot believe how fast time flies. I’m so proud to be your Momma!” Taylor wrote in the caption of her February 25 post on Instagram.

As Bravo fans well know, Taylor was just a young girl when Taylor joined the cast of RHOBH for its debut season in 2010.

“OMG she is so big now!!! Looks like you so much,” one person wrote in the comments section of Taylor’s post.

“She has grown to be a very pretty young lady,” noted another, who seemingly gave a nod to Taylor and Kennedy’s troubled past with Taylor’s late ex-husband, Russell Armstrong, who died by suicide in 2011 after allegedly abusing Taylor for years.

“Peace and love to you two … We watched what you’ve been through, it’s absolutely wonderful to see you happy, healthy, and in your power. Happy birthday,” a third person wrote.

“I can’t believe how big she is, and I’m just a fan of the show. lol,” a fourth commented.

Taylor also shared an additional post on Instagram, which featured a slideshow of photos of her and Kennedy.

“My baby is turning 17 today… I can’t believe how amazingly strong and beautiful she is. She is my arrow and I am her bow,” she captioned the pics.

And again, a number of fans weighed in.

“Holy moly!! Feels like just yesterday you were throwing her a mad hatter tea party. Happy birthday!!” one fan wrote to Taylor.

Another said, “Happy birthday Kennedy. Taylor Kennedy is absolutely gorgeous just like her mom. Where have the years gone? I remember her Mad Hatters birthday party when she was so little.”

Someone else asked, “Wasn’t she just a baby[?],” and exclaimed, “[I] can’t believe she is 17!”

Taylor, who married her current husband, John Bluher, in 2014, will be featured in the upcoming season of RHOC after starring in the first three seasons of RHOBH in a full-time role and later making a number of guest appearances on the series.

The Real Housewives of Orange County season 17 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime in the coming months.
