Reality tv show star Kandi Buruss shared a family snap with her husband, Todd Tucker, and three of her kids. She revealed that her teenage daughter, Riley, controls her home.
Kandi and her entrepreneur husband share two children; 4-year-old Ace Tucker and a few months old, Blaze Tucker. However, the parents have a blended family that is home to Riley, who's Kandi's older daughter from a previous relationship, and Kaela, Todd's 23-year old daughter from a former lover.

Recently, Kandi gave her online fans a sneak peek of family time with the kids. Though Kaela was nowhere to be found in the shared image, every member of the family looked like they were enjoying a swell time amid the quarantine.
Baby Blaze showed her toothless smile, and her older brother Ace playfully leaned on the stairs railings. Mama and papa stood in front of the stairs, and Riley struck a boss lady pose with two hands on her hips, leaving her mom to conclude that she really is the boss. Kandi quipped:
"You can really tell that @rileyburruss thinks she runs the house in this pics. My loves…#RileyBurruss."
Lovers of the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star didn't waste time in penning down their thoughts. Lots of love went to every member of the family. However, the comments about Kandi's baby princess, Blaze, were heartwarming.
Her parents welcomed her via surrogate last year, November, and every picture that has been posted featuring their tot has been flawless, as Blaze enjoys showing off her toothless grin.
She recently bagged a model contract with a baby clothing line, and as expected, the outcome was mesmerizing. In the shoot, the toddler modeled a hat and bodysuit. Her mom wrote:
" I love her smile! @blazetucker is always smiling! Hat & bodysuit from @shopraisingace."
Family members are also Blaze's fans. In an attempt to welcome her as the newest addition, her older siblings featured in photos and lovingly carried her in their arms.
Before her daughter's arrival, Kandi revealed that a close family member criticized her choice to contract a surrogate mother. The tv star confessed to being hurt and explained that it was due to her fertility problem.
Numerous celebrities such as Gabrielle Union, Andy Cohen, and Sarah Jessica Parker have used surrogates in conceiving their kids. But there's still some form of stigmatism associated with the process.
While the mother of three is often candid about her personal experiences, her 17-year-old daughter, who intends to become a lawyer, is also open about her views on life.
In a YouTube session, she addressed having a "sheltered" life and being spoiled by her mother. The "RHOA" star didn't object to giving her daughter a luxurious life but explained that a younger Kandi wasn't as privileged as Riley.
