The "Real Housewives Of Atlanta" Star Kandi Burruss, 43, Is Reportedly Expecting Baby No. 3 Via Surrogate

Date September 27, 2019

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kandi Burruss, is reportedly expecting her third child via surrogate, Bravo reported Thursday afternoon.

Earlier this year, the reality star expressed hopes to expand her family with husband Todd Tucker in the months to come.

The woman already has daughter Riley, 17, and son Ace, 3.

Kandi's IVF and pregnancy struggle

The singer-songwriter also opened up about potentially using a surrogate to have another child.

"I had to go through the IVF process to get my son, and I have been having some issues or whatever,”

- she explained on an episode of Busy Tonight.

"And this is something we were discussing, so I felt like, you know what, why hold back? I might as well talk about it. I think it’s important to share."

Kandi previously opened up about having Ace via IVF and explained why she didn’t want to be pregnant herself again. .Around the time of her pregnancy with Ace, Burruss had a few surgeries for fibroids, benign lumps or tumors that can cause complications with conception.

“I know there was still some fibroids after pregnancy. I feel like it got worse because Ace is two now and nothing’s happening,”

- she told.

“After having multiple thyroid surgeries, and still the fact that I have not been able to get pregnant the last two years, I know that I am going to have to do the same process again,”[I had] a couple of scares during my pregnancy with Ace. I was a high risk and I did have bleeding a few times. So my womb is just, it’s not the best place to have a healthy pregnancy with no issues.”

Baby # 3 is on its way!

The following month when Kandi appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, a caller and RHOA viewer asked how the process was going and if we were going to see a baby added to their family anytime soon.

“I don’t want to tell too much. But we have moved forward, God willing,”

- she said to a round of audience applause. The surrogate and their baby journey will reportedly be a prominent storyline for Kandi during the upcoming season 12 of RHOA.

We can't wait to hear the official confirmation about pregnancy and to see the new baby and its happy parents!
