Another Real Housewives Of Atlanta Star Is Reportedly Expanding Her Family

Looks like the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast is going to be growing! Yet another Real Housewife is reportedly expecting to welcome a baby in 2019.

Speaking to Us Weekly on Nov. 5, 2018, RHOA star and former XSCAPE singer Kandi Burruss revealed that she's planning to have another child. When asked if she and husband Todd Tucker were going to expand their family, Burruss shared, "Yeah, yeah, we're moving forward." She added, "We've decided we wanted to ... get a surrogate."

Burruss and Tucker have already taken steps toward parenthood (again). Burruss noted, "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."

But the whole journey toward having another child hasn't been easy. Burruss admitted being "kind of scared to do" surrogacy, as neither she nor her husband personally know anyone who's gone through 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," she explained.

While Burruss and Tucker's surrogate is not yet pregnant with their child, the reality TV star does already know the sex of her future little one. She told Us Weekly, "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."

Burruss had previously teased that she and Tucker may be growing their family when speaking about RHOA's 11th season back in October. "Let's just say [Todd and I] are figuring out the possibilities of expanding our family.

Burruss and Tucker previously welcomed their first child together in January 2016. As People reported at the time, the couple had a baby boy they named Ace Wells. Less than a year earlier, Burruss had revealed to E! News that she and Tucker were undergoing in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments to get pregnant.

While baby Ace was Burruss and Tucker's first kid as a couple, they both are parents to children born from other relationships. Burruss is mom to 16-year-old daughter Riley, whom she shares with ex Russell Spencer. Tucker, on the other hand, has a 23-year-old daughter named Kaela, as noted by Bravo.

Speaking to The Daily Dish in November 2018, Burruss opened up about the fertility issues she's experienced. "For me, it was like clearly I have not been getting pregnant ... it's just not happening," she said. "Luckily, it was a blessing we was able to get Ace through IVF, but in the process of doing IVF, we still have two more embryos. And with that being said, as soon as we had Ace, we knew that we would want to possibly use our other embryos, but I had a high-risk pregnancy last time, so that's why we decided we would consider surrogacy."

Of course, as fans of RHOA know, Kandi Burruss isn't the only star who's looking toward the future of her family. Burruss' co-star Porsha Williams is currently pregnant with a baby girl. Williams had previously announced her pregnancy in September 2018, announcing the good news to People magazine.

Opening up about having a child with now-fiancé Dennis McKinley, Williams, who'd suffered a miscarriage six years earlier, shared, "The thought of me getting that blessing after praying for it for so long and getting that blessing with someone who is just as excited as me — it's Dennis' first child, just like me — and it's something we've both always wanted ... It's like a dream come true."

Burruss and Williams' co-star Kenya Moore also had some baby news of her own in recent weeks. After announcing her pregnancy in April, Moore welcomed her first child with husband Marc Daly in early November. The two, who married in June 2017, had a daughter who they named Brooklyn Doris. Explaining why they chose the name for their baby girl, Moore told People, "Brooklyn because that's where we met and fell in love, and Doris after my grandmother who passed away last year and who raised me."

Let's just hope everyone from RHOA can get along. While a beautiful time in anyone's life, growing one's family can also be super stressful — and with stress come potential catfights.
