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.
