A HOUSE FULL OF LOVE
It has been reported that the child, who was named Blaze Tucker, was born on Friday at 6:54 p.m., weighing 8lbs, 1 oz. She will now join siblings Ace, Riley and Kaela.
Blaze is the couple's second child. While Ace was born three years ago, Reiley and Kaela are a result of Buruss and Tucker's previous relationships.
EXCITED BUT ALSO VERY NERVOUS AND SCARED
Bravo shared that the couple was expecting another baby in September, but even before that, in 2018, the 43-year-old reality TV star revealed her surrogacy plans to Us Weekly.
At the time, Buruss 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."
According to Buruss, she felt very nervous and "kind of scared" because she didn't have anyone she could talk to about surrogacy, at least until she met Andy Cohen, who gave her some advice about it.
Blaze Tucker was born on Friday at 6:54 p.m., weighing 8lbs, 1 oz.
HOW ANDY COHEN HELPED BURUSS HANDLE THE SURROGACY PROCESS
Cohen, who welcomed his first son via surrogate earlier this year, soothed Buruss' nerves by telling her that she shouldn't let negative thoughts get to her.
The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star was worried that she would have a "baby mama" since she wouldn't be carrying her own child but Cohen told her that she was that baby's real mother.
The host's words were enough to put Buruss at ease and she later admitted that she didn't even know he was in the middle of a surrogacy process.
