Is there something in the water in the ATL? Real Housewives of Atlanta is experiencing a peach baby boom! In November of 2018, Kenya Moore gave birth to her daughter, Brooklyn Daly. RHOA star Porsha Williams and
cheater fiancé Dennis McKinley welcomed a daughter, Pilar Jhena McKinley, on March 22.
On September 27, Eva Marcille and her husband Michael Sterling celebrated the birth of their son, Maverick. Now we can add Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker to that happy list of new parents.
The couple struggled to conceive again, and they revealed that they had two girl embryos left from when the couple had Ace. According to Page Six, Kandi decided to go the surrogate route because she had a high-risk pregnancy with her son. She also suffers from fibroids, which are noncancerous growths located in the uterus. Sadly, fans also learned during the Season 12 premiere that their surrogate was pregnant with female twins, but one of the embryos didn’t survive.
Both Kandi and Todd have daughters from previous relationships. Kandi has a 17-year-old daughter, Riley Burruss, and Todd has a 22-year-old daughter, Kaela. Kandi and Todd share son Ace Tucker, who is an adorable three-year-old.

Now Kandi and Todd have another reason to celebrate. US Weekly is reporting that they welcomed their daughter, Blaze Tucker, on November 22. Kandi posted a photo on Instagram of Blaze holding her older brother’s finger, with Todd’s hand in the background. “Our little angel is doing well! She was born yesterday 11-22-19 at 6:54pm. 8lbs & 1oz! Her name is Blaze Tucker. Thank you to everyone for the love & well wishes! She’s gonna Blaze a path to greatness! @blazetucker is our newest heartbeat,” Kandi wrote.
We know that Blaze already has a strong social media with presence, with over 20,000 followers on her new Instagram account. Wow! Does that make anyone else feel like their social media accounts are pitiful? Asking for a friend.

In an interview with US Weekly on November 5, 2018 Kandi revealed that she was anxious about the surrogate process. “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,” Kandi shared.
But there was someone who did give Kandi some support–Bravo icon Andy Cohen. According to US Weekly, Kandi shared a conversation that she had with Andy on the February 18, 2019 episode of Busy Tonight. “I had made a comment. I said something like, ‘I guess I’m gonna have a baby mama,’” Kandi remarked. “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,” Kandi stated.

“At the time I didn’t know that he was doing [surrogacy] too. And then when he announced it, he hit me up immediately and said, ‘Now you see why I felt so strongly,’” Kandi added. Andy welcomed a son, Benjamin Allen Cohen via surrogate in February.
Congratulations to Kandi and Todd and their entire family on their newest addition, baby Blaze.
