On Saturday, Vanessa, 38, shared a stunning image of her daughter, Natalia Bryant, as the mom of four praised her eldest child for pursuing a career in modeling.
“My baby (with makeup) 😁❤️,” she began the caption of her post before adding the hashtag “#grown” and tagging Natalia in the post.
“Daddy would be so happy that you’re pursuing your modeling career now that you’re 18,” she continued. “You’re beautiful inside and out. We love you.”
On her Instagram Story, the matriarch also reshared a post from Natalia — in which the teen wrote, “I love you,” to her mom — responding, “You better! You stole my face with daddy’s lips,” alongside a two emoji.
The day prior, she also shared another glamorous image of Natalia, writing “That’s my baby!” alongside the photo.
Earlier last month, Natalia launched her career in modeling, signing with IMG Models.
“I have always been interested in fashion since a very young age,” the model said in a statement shared to IMG’s Instagram account. “I have a love for the industry and ever since I can remember I wanted to model. There is a lot to learn but I feel this is a great opportunity for me to learn and express myself creatively.”
“I am beyond thrilled and so honored to be a part of the IMG family!” Natalia later wrote on her Instagram Story as well, reposting her headshot from IMG.
Vanessa also shared IMG’s original announcement on her Instagram Story and added a GIF that said “I am so proud of you.”
Speaking with PEOPLE recently, Vanessa, who is the cover honoree in this week’s Women Changing the World issue, said she’s “extremely proud of Natalia,” and called her daughter “my right-hand woman.”
“On top of her own grief, she has balanced her senior year of high school, applying to colleges, nurturing her sisters, and just recently signing her own modeling contract with IMG,” the proud parent said. “She is a wonderful big sister and an incredible daughter.”
