After the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member welcomed a baby girl on Friday, November 22, via surrogate, she shared an announcement with her fans and followers via text and along with the announcement, Kandi included the first photo of her third child.
“She’s here!” Kandi wrote. “Blaze Tucker born at 6:54 pm on 11-22-19 weighing 8lbs 01 oz. I’m so thankful to add another healthy, beautiful, baby girl to the family!”
Blaze joins older brother Ace, 3, who Kandi and Todd welcomed in January 2016, and also has two older sisters, including Kandi’s 17-year-old daughter, Riley, and Todd’s 22-year-old daughter, Kaela.
News of Kandi’s plan to add a third child into her family was first announced in September. At the time, PEOPLE magazine noted that Kandi, who married husband Todd in April 2014 after three years of dating, would be welcoming a third child “soon” and added that her surrogacy journey would be featured on season 12 of RHOA.
During an episode of Busy Tonight earlier this year, Kandi discussed a chat she had with Real Housewives creator Andy Cohen, who welcomed his first child, via surrogate, in February after admitting to being hesitant to use a surrogate.
“I had made a comment. I said something like, ‘I guess I’m gonna have a baby mama.’ And he said to me, ‘Don’t you ever say that because you are the mother,” Kandi shared. “‘And to say she’s your baby’s mom is taking away from you.’ It made me feel better.”
After The Shade Room shared Kandi’s baby news with their audience on Instagram, Kandi responded to the post.
“We’re so in love!” she gushed.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 12 airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on Bravo TV.
