‘We’re So In Love’: Kandi Burruss Offers Tiny Glimpse of Her New Baby Girl

Oh, baby!

Congrats are in order for Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker, as the couple welcomed their second child, a baby girl, via surrogate Friday.

Burrus, 43, announced the exciting news to fans in a text blast and offered a small glimpse of their new bundle of joy, Blaze Tucker.

“❤️ We’re so in love!” the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star commented under an Instagram post, where fans flooded her with plenty of love and congratulatory messages.

“So happy for you! Congratulations to you and your beautiful family!” one fan wrote.

“Congratulations Love! I’m sure it was well worth the wait!” another chimed in. “Welcome baby girl Tucker! 💕💖”

“Congratulations to the Tuckers 💛,” said another.

Amid the celebratory messages, however, were folks who weren’t so sold on the baby’s name. Celebs are known for bestowing their children with not so common names, however, some argued that “Blaze” was a different level of unique.

“Blaze? Like fire?” one critic wrote.

“That’s not a girl name and sounds like a nickname,” another commented, adding, “Folks with money though always come with a crazy name for a baby smh 😂”

“Lol the name sounds a little pornstar ish.. or am I just nasty?? 😫😫” someone else joked.

Another user agreed, saying “Damn, I know she (the baby) can’t wait to change her name.”

Others jumped to the couple’s defense, writing: “Name is cute and different, f–k y’all haters 😘” and “Loveeee that name.”

Burruss and her husband first explored the option of surrogacy during RHOA season 11. After a bit of hesitation from the family, namely Buruss’ 17-year-old daughter Riley Burruss, the couple forged ahead with plans to expand their family.

The “Don’t Think I’m Not” crooner decided surrogacy was the best option after she and Todd struggled to get pregnant, and previous complications while carrying the couples’ now 2-year-old son Ace left her worried that “my womb … just isn’t the best place to have a healthy pregnancy with no issues.”

“Todd and I are both nervous about it,” she told The Daily Dish in 2018. “I think it’s easier for Todd to handle or deal with because as a man he’s used to somebody else carrying the baby. But for me it’s a little bit harder for me to deal with the thought because I’m supposed to carry my own kids in my mind.”
