Ariana Biermann Looks Just Like Her Reality Star Mom

Reality stars are constantly under the microscope of the public eye — because let's face it, that's what they signed up for — and their kids are included in that deal. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak-Biermann gave a spotlight to her two mini-mes: Brielle and Ariana Biermann, who each grew their own fanbases tremendously, especially Ariana. 

Ariana is one of the oldest kids in the Zolciak-Biermann family. At the age of 18, she is closest in age to her sister Brielle, 23. She's also got multiple younger siblings: Kroy Jagger "KJ," who turns 9 at the end of May; Kash Kade, 7; and 6-year-old twins, Kaia Rose and Kane Ren, from her mother's relationship with NFL player, Kroy Biermann, who adopted Ariana and Brielle in 2013. 

Like all the other Biermann kids, Ariana made her TV debut on the RHOA. However, Ariana has let the show be her stepping stone into Instagram fame and a fitness-loving personal brand.

Ariana Biermann struggled with her body image on-screen

Puberty is already terrible for the average person, but it certainly doesn't help when you're a public figure and millions watch your awkward years unfold. Ariana Biermann has been on The Real Housewives of Atlanta since its debut in 2008, and many people shared commentary on her looks.

Since the teen grew up on TV, the world watched and judged along the way. Ariana's mom Kim Zolciak-Biermann spoke to Entertainment Tonight about Ariana's self-esteem and Instagram bullies policing her body in February 2019.

Kim said Ariana would receive many comments saying, "You're fat, you've always been fat," on her Instagram and it clearly affected her. This was also shown on Kim's spinoff show, Don't Be Tardy, where a tearful Ariana couldn't fit into prom dresses and Kim had to give her a motherly self-love lesson.

"People on Instagram, especially, are so f**king rude about it that I have to monitor her page constantly because of the nasty comments," Kim told ET. "Now, they're saying all she does is photoshop her pictures, 'cause she's not that small. It's a constant battle, and I always want my girls to love themselves, no matter what size they are."

Ariana Biermann channeled her energy into fitness

Ariana Biermann was a prime example of "let your haters be your motivators." As "Don't Be Tardy For The Party" singer Kim Zolciak-Biermann told Entertainment Tonight, her daughter Ariana stays in the gym working on herself constantly.

"She works out at the gym every day," Kim said in 2019. "She's itty-bitty tiny. She's really kind of come into her own." The 18-year-old reality TV star dropped 30 pounds and began using her Instagram to promote her healthy lifestyle, including partnering with FabFitFun, the fashion and fitness product subscription service where Ariana is a brand ambassador.

Despite her fitness-focused lifestyle, Ariana has expressed wanting plastic surgery, just like her mom. However, Kim said she's against that and believes beauty comes from within. "I am not open to any plastic surgery on my girls at this time," she expressed to ET. "I tell them, you know, when you're done having kids and all that good stuff, worry about all that stuff later on down the road, if that's what you want to do, but you guys are beautiful and so young."

Even though Kim had a firm position on plastic surgery, she doesn't consider lip fillers or injections plastic surgery, which Ariana has mentioned wanting on Don't Be Tardy. 

Ariana is focused on college, boys, and having fun, just like the average teenager

Ariana Biermann's romantic life has been a major topic of Don't Be Tardy plotlines, especially in Season 7. The teen had shared past boyfriends on the show, including Collin Lipman and Hudson McLeroy. However, based on Ariana's Instagram, she isn't dating either boy anymore, per Distractify.

Instead, her Insta only shows off her snatched bod (lip fillers included), best friend Austin Anderson, and her healthy lifestyle. Outside of her branding endeavors, the teen got accepted to Arizona State University, a.k.a. her dream school, in 2019.

Kim Zolciak-Biermann was happy about the acceptance, but had a typical mother reaction with the thought of her daughter moving across the country and away from their Atlanta home. "Guess we are moving too then. If you see me crying this is just a few of the reasons why," she said on Instagram, per Bravo's The Daily Dish. "My dream: we all live on the same street forever. Ariana, we are so PROUD OF YOU."
