‘Toddlers & Tiaras’s Eden Wood Is All Grown Up in High School Grad Pic
Eden Wood, who starred on TLC's Toddlers & Tiaras from 2009 to 2011, is officially a high school graduate, as the 18-year-old celebrated the accomplishment on social media.
The former reality TV star shared photos on Instagram of the momentous day of her graduation ceremony, posing in her graduation gown while holding her diploma.
Eden wrote in the caption, "Alumni Status🎓🤍 #valedictorian#classof2023 #graduated #edenwood #highschoolgrad #ontocollege."
One photo included her mother, Mickie Wood, who was known as a "pageant mom" while she appeared on Toddlers & Tiaras with her daughter.
Another snap also showed Eden giving her speech as the valedictorian of her class, while the next photo found the teenager surrounded by friends.
Many friends, family, and likely some fans congratulated Eden in the comments and wished her luck with her future plans.
While Eden confirmed in the caption that she's heading off to college soon, she shared with Today.com that she plans to study broadcast journalism.
She said, "I want to do something that I love. I don’t want to be stuck doing a job that’s boring. I’ve been in a front of a camera my whole life, so this feels like the perfect fit."
Along with Toddlers & Tiaras, Eden also had a spin-off series, Eden's World, which aired in 2012, before deciding to leave the pageant world at age six.
After retiring from pageants, she pursued acting and modeling for a short while, before taking a break for school.
Eden told Today.com, "I took a break and was a regular kid. I focused on my schooling. But when I was done with that, I branched back out into pageants and modeling.”
Part of her future plans also include the pageant world, with Eden revealing that she hopes to one day represent Arkansas in the Miss America pageant.
