The Real Housewives’ of Atlanta Kandi Burruss is having a third baby via surrogate. The happy couple has already said that they will share their journey with fans on the new season that will premiere in November.
Kandi met her future husband while he worked with the production crew on the housewives’ trip to South Africa. It was a huge no-no to associate with the talent, but thankfully Tucker took a chance and the couple married in an elaborate "Coming to America" wedding in 2014. The couple was met with some roadblocks due to Burruss’s mother, Joyce, thinking Tucker had cheated on her daughter and was only out to get her money. Eventually, Joyce got over her issues with her son-in-law and it seems the difficulties have passed.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star announced via Bravo that she will be expecting another bundle of joy. The singer told the network on September 26th that her and husband, Todd Tucker will be using a surrogate to bring about baby number three. The couple already has children together Riley and Ace and Kaela from Tucker's previous relationship. In November of 2018, Burruss told Us Weekly that they wanted to add to their family and were looking into their options, especially surrogacy. In the interview, the Grammy award-winning songwriter said that they had found someone that they connected with. The couple revealed the sex of the new baby when Burruss said, "We have two embryos that are still left from when we had Ace. So, we have two embryos left and we know they’re girls."
The reality TV couple was shown on last season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta speaking to their OBGYN about the possibility of having another child. The couple seemed a bit apprehensive about the possibility of using a surrogate as they did not know anyone who had gone through the process. She acknowledged that when she had tried the IVF treatment, she had a couple of friends who were trying it at the same time so they could lean on one another for support, but with a surrogate - she had no one to confide in.
Luckily, Burruss had the chance to speak with Andy Cohen who welcomed a son via a surrogate and told her that she would always be the child’s mother even if it was not born from her womb. To Burruss, this sentiment made all the difference in identifying that a surrogate would not be a "baby mama" but rather a vessel to help Tucker and herself welcome another child into the world. Fans can look forward to seeing the couple's surrogacy journey on the new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta premiering this November.
