“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star remarked on just that Friday when she shared a school photo of her 3-year-old, Ace Wells Tucker.
“My favorite lil guy in the world is growing up so fast! I love @acewellstucker so much! ❤️” read the reality TV star’s Oct. 25 caption.
Fans immediately poured out with remarks about how big the child Burruss shares with husband Todd Tucker has gotten.
“He’s such a big boy!! So handsome.”
“Man time is flying by!!! Ace is grown now🤦🏾♂️”
“He’s so big!!!”
“OMG!! I cannot believe he is this big already @kandi!! My how time flies!! He is a handsome little fella 🤗”
“Whoa he’s such a big boy now he’s so adorable @kandi”
The last comment may be a reference to Burruss and Tucker’s plans to expand their family. The Xscape singer welcomed Ace on Jan. 6, 2016, after struggling to get pregnant and obtaining in vitro fertilization treatments. So once Ace came, Burruss told People magazine the moment was “very emotional.”
Now, Burruss and Tucker are embarking on another emotional journey by adding a baby girl to their family.
The early effort to find a surrogate was chronicled on season 11 of “RHOA.” More of that journey will soon be explored once season 12 bows Nov. 3 on Bravo.
“I know there was still some fibroids after pregnancy. I feel like it got worse because Ace is 2 now and nothing’s happening,” Burruss told her OB/GYN Dr. Jackie Walters of “Married to Medicine” last season. “After having multiple fibroid 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.”
Speaking prematurely, Burruss let the cat out of the bag and confirmed on V-103’s “The Morning Culture” earlier this month that the couple has successfully found a surrogate following Tucker’s previous reservations.
“We got a baby on the way,” the singer said, before adding, “Why did I do that?”
In no time Tucker, who had been listening to the interview, blew up his wife’s phone and told her she needed to keep quiet.
“You ain’t supposed to be talking about the baby!” he said.
“All right, I’m in trouble. OK,” Burruss told the radio hosts. “I’m not supposed to be talking about it, so let me shut up. I’m excited, though. So I’ma just leave you with that.”
