Prior to coming into the world, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker admitted to having some some trouble coming up with a name for their newborn, but the Real Housewives of Atlanta couple finally settled on a moniker for their son: Ace Wells Tucker. Kandi confirmed the name on Thursday (January 7), one day after she gave birth to the tot.
"We named our beautiful baby boy Ace because I wanted something unique," she told E! News. "When he becomes school age, hopefully he won't have to worry about another person in the class having his name."
Both Kandi and Todd have daughters from previous relationships, making Ace their first child together. "More than that, Ace represents the number 1 and that of the highest quality and our baby Ace is definitely that!" she added. "His middle name Wells was Todd's mother's last name. Using her last name as his middle name was our way of honoring her memory."
Ahead of the special delivery, The Daily Dish spoke to Kandi about how excited the Burruss-Tucker clan was to welcome the new addition to the crew. "Riley is like, 'Oh I can't wait to see the baby. I'll help babysit, but I'm not changing diapers,'" she said (in the clip above). "So she's the one that I'm like, 'OK, we're gonna have to work on you. My mother is excited. She's actually working on her own baby room in her house. And she told me, 'Granny needs a nanny.' I'm like, Granny just don't know she might be the nanny.'"
To celebrate their baby news, take a trip down memory lane with some adorable photos of the couple.
