Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker are gearing up for another baby. The couple has found a surrogate and are planning to welcome a new bundle of joy in their home, despite Kandi's daughter Riley Burruss saying they didn't need anymore children. Deets inside...
Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker are looking to expand their family unit, despite Kandi's daughter Riley Burruss' disapproval. And despite the ridiculously busy schedule Kandi always talks about having.
During the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" season 11 premiere, Riley told her mother and step-father that they shouldn't have any more children. The reason? She said Kandi works too much and wouldn't have time to properly care for a newborn. However, Kandi said she felt bad leaving her and Todd's two embryos "in the freezer."
If you didn't know, Kandi and Todd used IVF to have their son, Ace Tucker, and they have two female embryos left over from the process.
With Kandi being 42-years-old, the couple decided to use a surrogate this time around and they have already found one!
“Yeah, yeah, we’re moving forward,” the Bedroom Kandi honcho told US Weekly. “We’ve decided we wanted to … get a surrogate.”
The Grammy Award winning songwriter said she's a little "nervous about it," but they're currently in the process to expanding their brood.
“We did find someone, and right now we are in the process — you know it hasn’t been done — but we’re in the process.”
With IVF, Kandi said she had friends she could call up and ask questions. With surrogacy, she said she doesn't have anyone in her circle she can talk to about it, so that makes her more anxious.
“Like, I don’t have anybody who can tell me [about it]. When we were going through the IVF process, I did have a couple of friends who had done it, so, you know, I could talk to them, but this is a situation where I don’t have anybody I can talk to.”
Sorry, Rilez. Looks like you're getting a little sister. In case you missed, see the conversation Kandi had with Riley about a new baby HERE.
