"We Did It!"

Kimora Lee Simmons is celebrating her oldest daughter, Ming Lee Simmons. The fashion mogul took to Instagram on Friday (May 19) to commemorate her “mini-me’s” graduation from college.


“We did it,” Kimora exclaimed. “My first baby graduated college,” the celebrity mom shared with her social media fans.
Kimora went on to tell her supporters that her daughter graduated from New York University (NYU). “It’s been a journey and a labor of love but you did it,” Kimora wrote to Ming. “Mama is so proud of you!”

Kim Kardashian was one of many to celebrate Ming and Kimora. “You should be so proud of yourselves,” the business mogul exclaimed. “Congrats Ming and beat mommy!” Natalia Bryant wrote, “Huge congratulations.”

Ming is the oldest of Kimora Lee Simmons’ five kids. The fashion mogul recently sat down with PEOPLE to discuss her life as a single mother.

“I’m a single mom of five kids and I know how hard it can be,” Kimora shared. “I know how that feels like to raise your kids and to get up every day and only care about them,” the celebrity mom said.

“And it doesn’t matter, if you’re rich and famous or you’re this thing or this singer, that singer, at the end of the day, you’re a mom or you’re a cousin, you’re an auntie, you’re a family member, you’re a community person, a caregiver, you’re just there trying to make everything come together,” Kimora told the media source.

“To have three kids at home that are like pre-teen — I guess 13 is a teenager — and just trying to get them through and, you know, it’s a lot, it’s like an emotional rollercoaster as any mom knows or any person knows that’s in the proximity of children.”

Ming Lee Simmons was the first of the five siblings to attend university. The graduate’s younger sister, Aoki Lee Simmons, enrolled at Harvard University when she was just 16-years-old. Kimora has three sons in addition to her daughters.
