Phaedra Parks recently posted a special ode to her oldest son on Instagram, but many fans instead marveled at how much the mother and son resemble one another.
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum uploaded a photo of herself hugging 8-year-old Ayden Nida on her Instagram page Tuesday, March 26. She explained to fans in the caption that the moment was one she was clinging to.
“Cherishing this moment. Thanking God for the simple things life, love and joy,” she said. “My #prince is a great #son top math student, an awesome cook and power hitter in baseball! He wanted me to post him making a homerun but I have to edit it down My #firstborn #momlife #thankful #motherandson.”
Parks’ post spurred lots of loving messages from fans.
“He is so handsome & SMART.”
“Priceless keep up the gud wrk prince @phaedraparks.”
“OK Mr. GQ And mommy looking so great”
And several couldn’t help but comment on how Ayden was the spitting image of his attorney mama.
“He is your twin.”
“@phaedraparks Twinning ”
“Your mini me.”
“Me & Mini Me”
But while Parks posted a special bonding moment with her oldest son, she’s a doting mom to his younger brother, 5-year-old Dylan Nida, too.
Gushing about her boys to People magazine earlier this year, the former “RHOA” star said they keep her on her toes.
“They are definitely full of personality. Totally opposite but both hilarious,” Parks shared back in January. “They are third grade and kindergarten and with all kinds of sports and after-school activities on their schedule — that is a job in and of itself!”
Parks has also shared how she’s raising her boys on Instagram fairly recently. Posting a meme about parenting, she asked fans who they’re bringing their kids up to become.
“Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful and magical humans on earth, for what they believe is what they will become,” read the meme uploaded to her account in late January.
“I’m raising a #President and #King what are you raising?” Parks added in the caption.
