‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Star Kandi Burruss Reveals She’s Found a Surrogate To Carry Baby Girl

Kandi Burruss could be adding to her brood! The Real Housewives of Atlanta star stopped by Us Weekly on Monday, November 5, and dished on her plans for surrogacy.

“Yeah, yeah, we’re moving forward,” the 42-year-old reality star gushed when asked if she and husband Todd Tucker are planning on expanding their family. “We’ve decided we wanted to … get a surrogate.”

Burruss dished: “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.”

As for her initial feelings on surrogacy, the Georgia native explained to Us that she was “kind of scared to do it” and “nervous about it” in the beginning because she and Tucker don’t know anyone else who have gone through the process.

The Grammy winner added: “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.”

Burruss also opened up to Us about the gender of the potential little one. “We have girls,” she revealed. “We have two embryos that are still left from when we had Ace. So, we have two embryos left and we know they’re girls.”

The Bravo star went on to joke that hee 16-year-old daughter, Riley — whom she shares with ex Russell Spencer — told her she doesn’t “need to have anymore kids,” but that the teen said the same thing when Burruss and Tucker welcomed their son, Ace, in 2016.

Season 11 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Bravo on Sundays at 8 p.m. ET.
