We're sending a big "happy birthday" out to Noel de Lesseps. And we kind of can't believe how grown up he's gotten since we first met him and his mama, Luann de Lesseps, when The Real Housewives of New York City premiered all those years ago. And it's pretty clear from Luann's Instagram message for her son, she is excited to be by his side celebrating. "[Noel] proud to be your mom! Happy Birthday my handsome kind boy!" she wrote.
And in case anyone is wondering what Noel is up to these days, he's been keeping busy as an artist and skateboard designer, as he shares on his Instagram. "He designs the skateboards and the decks, and he's got apparel. So I'm very proud of my kids. They're both very artistic and good kids, nice kids," Luann shared with The Daily Dish back in the spring, noting that her daughter, Victoria de Lesseps works for fashion designer Nicole Miller, in addition to also dabbling in art on the side.
Victoria recently celebrated Nicole Miller's latest New York Fashion Week show on Instagram, noting, "Such an amazing show so thrilled to be apart of the design team and to work with such amazing talented people!"
The fact that both her kids work in creative fields is not surprising to the Big Apple mom, who added that she's "always known" that they would find their way into that world, calling them "fierce artists in their own right."
