‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Kandi Burruss has welcomed a baby girl, via surrogate.
According to Entertainment Tonight, the singer and her husband Todd Tucker, welcomed a baby girl they named Blaze Tucker, on Friday at 6:54 p.m., weighing in at 8 lbs., 1 oz.
This is the second child for the couple. Burruss, 43, and Tucker — who wed in 2014 — share 3-year-old son Ace and daughters from previous relationships: Kandi’s daughter Riley, 17, and Todd’s daughter Kaela, 22.
The couple has bravely shared their surrogate journey on RHOA. Burruss revealed that while she always wanted more children, her high-risk pregnancy with son Ace and history of fibroids (noncancerous growths in the uterus) made her extremely hesitant to carry a child another time around.
The couple also revealed during the “RHOA” season 12 premiere that their surrogate was initially pregnant with twins, but one of the embryos didn’t make it.
“We actually was supposed to be having twins, and then one of them didn’t continue,” Burruss said on the show. “I was sad at first, but then I just had to be grateful that the one made it.”
Congratulations to the Tucker Family!
