“Real Housewives Of Atlanta” star and Xscape singer, Kandi Burruss, is opening up on the real reason she’s considering surrogacy for her second child with husband, Todd Tucker.


On Sunday’s episode of RHOA, the 42-year-old and Tucker paid a visit to the OBGYN for more information on the steps they were about to take. Burruss told the doctor they’d been trying for a baby naturally without any success.


When she was pregnant with their two-year-old son, Ace, Burruss experienced multiple complications including fibroids and benign tumors that required surgeries.


“I know there was still some fibroids after pregnancy. I feel like it got worse because Ace is two now and nothing’s happening,” Burruss informed the doctor.

The reality star said she was considering surrogacy because her womb is “not the best place to have a healthy pregnancy with no issues.”


She added:

“After having multiple thyroid surgeries, and still the fact that I have not been able to get pregnant the last two years, I know that I am going to have to do the same process again. [I had] a couple of scares during my pregnancy with Ace. I was a high risk and I did have bleeding a few times. So my womb is just, it’s not the best place to have a healthy pregnancy with no issues.”

After the doctor assured the couple surrogacy was a great option, Tucker insisted he would only go along with the idea if they could implant the two embryos left over from when Burruss did IVF. “I don’t want to leave anybody behind,” he said.

Burruss, on the other hand, was more concerned with being completely involved throughout the process. She told the doctor:

“I want to be able to know about all the checkups.”


Earlier this month, Burruss revealed in an interview that she and her husband were considering surrogacy. That was after she became the subject of pregnancy rumors last month just after filming for RHOA.

Besides their son, Tucker and Burruss each have two daughters from previous relationships.
