Kandi Burruss is not a first-time mom, but the Real Housewives of Atlanta singer certainly felt like one when she gave birth to her son Ace Wells Tucker in January. It had been 13 years since Kandi had a newborn in her life, so it took some adjusting. “It’s like starting all over,” Kandi, who has a teenage daughter, Riley, from a previous relationship, told People. “We were like, ‘Which bottles do we use? What diapers do we buy?’ Simple stuff that you would think I already know and I don’t. It’s silly."
However, she and husband Todd Tucker had long wanted to expand their family — so they turned to IVF treatments to help make that dream come true. “We really worked hard for him,” Kandi said. “It was a long process and lots of needles.”
Inside the magazine, Kandi shows off more photos of Ace than we've ever seen before, despite the number of images she's posted to Instagram. “I always wanted a boy so we were super excited because we have two girls and they give us much attitude,” Kandi said, referring to Riley and Todd's daughter, Kaela, from a previous relationship, “We were looking forward to having a boy.”
Catch more of Kandi when the Season 8 finale of RHOA airs on Sunday, March 13 at 8/7c. Get a sneak peek of the episode, below.
