Watch As Kandi Burruss And Todd Tucker Have A Very Real Conversation About Surrogacy
Kandi Burruss, 42, and Todd Tucker, 45, are taking time to think about the next step in their baby making process according to a new trailer for an upcoming episode of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
In November the couple announced they wanted to add another member to their clan and were considering surrogacy as an option. Together they have a three-year-old son named Ace. Todd has a 21-year-old daughter named Kaela from a previous relationship, while Kandi has Riley, her 16-year-old daughter with rapper Russell “Block” Spencer.
In an exclusive clip from Page Six, the couple sit down at their Atlanta restaurant Old Lady Gang, to hash out their thoughts regarding the process of using a surrogate.
“Are you ready to move forward with the surrogate process?” Kandi asks.
“I don’t know if I want to be a part of the process,” Todd says in response. “Like I think I just want the kids to come but I don’t know if I wanna see this lady carrying our kid. I don’t know. I haven’t really figured it out in my head.”
“That’s something you really need to figure out,” Burruss says.
“Todd is weird because one minute he’s saying, ‘Oh yeah, I want to be there at the doctor’s appointment,'” she said in her confessional.
Todd seems to exhibit some hesitation, especially considering that money has given them access to a new life.
“Who has a surrogate? I’m from the Bronx,” Tucker said.
“This is definitely not the norm of what I’ve grown up to know, you know, to have a baby,” she says. “But the way we had Ace is not the way we grew up to know to have a baby either.”
Burruss told PEOPLE Magazine that using a surrogate was the surest option due to her complications with fibroids after carrying Ace.
“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,” Burruss stated. “[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.”
