Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, is expecting baby number three! Last season on the RHOA, Kandi opened up about wanting more children. Now Kandi is having her third child via surrogate. According to Bravo’s The Daily Dish, Kandi will be expanding her business and family during the series 12th season. Kandi and her husband, Todd Tucker, explore getting a surrogate to carry their child and they officially are expecting now! Kandi shared they were going through with it during the season 11 RHOA reunion.
Kandi is a mom to her teenage daughter, Riley, and toddler son, Ace. Kandi had initially wanted to use the embryos from her IVF to have Ace, but it was too big of a health risk so they are going with this option instead. Kandi had told Bravo’s The Daily Dish last year, “It was a blessing we was able to get [our son] Ace through IVF, but in the process of doing IVF, we still have two more embryos. And with that being said, as soon as we had Ace, we knew that we would want to possibly use our other embryos, but I had a high-risk pregnancy last time, so that’s why we decided we would consider surrogacy. Todd and I are both nervous about it. I think it’s easier for Todd to handle or deal with because as a man he’s used to somebody else carrying the baby. But for me it’s a little bit harder for me to deal with the thought because I’m supposed to carry my own kids in my mind. But, hey, with science, it’s made other options to be able to make it happen.”
Andy Cohen welcomed his son Benjamin via surrogate last February, too. Andy has helped Kandi feel better about the situation. Kandi said, “I had made a comment. I said something like, ‘I guess I’m gonna have a baby mama.’ And he said to me, ‘Don’t you ever say that because you are the mother. And to say she’s your baby’s mom is taking away from you.’ It made me feel better.”
Congratulations, Kandi! Babies are blessings. I wish them all the best on this exciting new chapter! I’m looking forward to next season of the RHOA – especially after watching that fiery trailer for season 12 dropped.
