If there’s one thing everyone knows about Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey, it’s that her daughter Noelle is her world. So its no surprise that she’s celebrating her baby girl’s big day in a major way.
Bailey shared several Instagram posts celebrating this huge milestone in her daughter’s life. “My heart [and] first true love is 21 today!,” Bailey wrote under a photo of Noelle smiling from ear to ear in a pink satin two-piece outfit. “There are no words to express my love for you @noellerobinson.”
Birthday messages to Noelle poured in from fellow RHOA castmates including Nene Leakes, Kenya Moore and even Bailey’s former assistant Carlton Morton, who later appeared on the Netflix show Love Is Blind.
Bailey sent even more love in a follow-up post, writing “Happy 21st birthday to my daughter @noellerobinson! I pray you have an abundance of love, peace & happiness as you continue your journey.”
Mom wasn’t the only proud parent to send love to the newly minted 21-year-old. Noelle’s dad Leon Robinson and her stepdad Mike Hill also sent loving shout outs, letting the birthday girl know just how proud they are.

Please help me wish this beautiful young soul and my bonus daughter @noellerobinson a very happy and blessed 21st birthday. I call her my bonus daughter because she’s been a tremendous & priceless addition to my life. I love you “Noellie”. May God continue to bless you & enrich your spirit! I can’t wait to see how you will continue to bless this world with your amazing presence. ❤️❤️
Last year, Bailey and her daughter attended the World Pride celebration in New York City together. At the time, Noelle had just come out to her mother as sexually fluid and thankfully, her mom was fully supportive. While filming RHOA, Bailey made it clear she welcomes her daughter’s sexual identity with open arms. “We all love and support Noelle,” says the former supermodel. “It’s just new for us. So we’re just trying to get used to it. It makes me excited that Noelle feels like she has a safe space to share. With World Pride right around the corner, I think this is the perfect time for me and Noelle to show out and celebrate because love is love.”
In case you hadn’t heard, Noelle has big dreams to follow in her actor dad’s footsteps. After attending Howard University for a stint, she decided to switch gears by packing up and moving to Hollywood to pursue acting. “So pre-pandemic I was actually going on a lot of acting auditions. I’ve been taking a lot of acting classes. I’ve been taking regular online academic classes,” Noelle recently told Bravo’s Daily Dish back in June “I definitely want to get into just more acting and following in my dad’s footsteps in that regard.”
While she’s hustling to make it to the silver screen, Noelle has also launched her own YouTube channel where she posts tons of beauty and lifestyle content.
By the looks of it, Noelle enjoyed her first legal cocktail. We’ll cheers to that!
Happy 21st birthday Noelle!
