(Newser) – A bittersweet Instagram post from Ottavia Busia-Bourdain is grabbing attention. It's a photo of Ariane, her daughter with ex-husband Anthony Bourdain, in which the 11-year-old's head is turned toward her left shoulder as she holds a microphone. The caption reads: "Our little girl had her concert today. She was amazing. So strong and brave. She wore the boots you bought her. I hope you are having a good trip, wherever you are."

The New York Post reports the photo was taken at the NYC music venue DROM. People reports it was Busia-Bourdain's first social media post since the death of Bourdain, whom she was married to from 2007 to 2016. (Details on Bourdain's suicide were released over the weekend.)
