Kandi Burruss exclusively shared a picture of her newly-born daughter, Blaze Tucker, who already has 20,000 people following her newly created Instagram account.
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker were blessed with daughter Blaze Tucker on November 22 and the family has been delighted by the new addition. The 43-year-old gave her fans a glimpse of the newly born by sharing a candid picture on her Instagram account. The picture showed tiny hands of the “little angel," holding Ace's finger, with a wrist-wrapped small hospital bracelet. Father Todd Tucker's hands can also be seen giving his little daughter a gentle touch.
The picture was captioned as "Our little angel is doing well! She was born yesterday 11-22-19 at 6:54 pm. 8lbs & 1oz! Her name is Blaze Tucker." The Xscape singer further thanked everyone for their good wishes saying, "Thank you to everyone for the love & well wishes! She’s gonna Blaze a path to greatness! @blazetucker is our newest heartbeat.” The newest member has received a warm virtual welcome in the Instagram world, with 20,000 people following her already. Blaze has been born via the gestational carrier, and the couple had differentiated views on surrogacy before considering it as an option.
They revealed in November of 2018 that they have finally found the right person to be their surrogate and that they have started the process. Burruss said, "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, 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 couple were new to the surrogacy process and had their concerns regarding it.
RHOA star expressed that she didn't have anybody close who has had any experience regarding surrogacy, which made it challenging for her to settle. She had undergone the process of IVF for son Ace and was glad to have a healthy discussion about it with friends beforehand. However, her search ended on Andy Cohen, who advised her on surrogacy after welcoming son Benjamin through the same process in February.
Burruss said to the TV host, “I guess I’m gonna have a baby mama," to which Cohen replied quite rigidly, saying, "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." This statement moved the star and eradicated her doubts completely.
Apart from Ace and Blaze, Kandi has a 17-year-old daughter, Riley, with her ex Russell Spencer. Tucker is also a proud father of a 22-year-old daughter, named Kaela, from a previous relationship. The family is now enjoying the addition of the new member, and the fans are busy wishing the little one a lifetime of happiness.
