AceShowbiz - Rumors about Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker expecting twins via a surrogate is true, though there's more to the story. In the season 12 premiere of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" on Sunday, November 3, the Xscape singer confirmed the rumors, but only one girl made it through the process in the end.
She said during the episode, "We actually was supposed to be having twins, and then one of them didn't continue." Even though she did admit that she was "sad" after learning of the news, Kandi tried to keep a positive mind because she was still given a chance to become a mother one more time. "I was sad at first, but then I just had to be grateful that the one made it," she said.
Back in September, it was reported that Kandi and Todd are expecting their third child via surrogate, with a second source adding that her surrogate was carrying twins after the couple implanted two embryos into their surrogate. Talking about surrogacy in the season premiere, Kandi admitted, "To allow someone to carry my child inside of her, it was a tough decision to make."
She continued, "I just feel like this whole situation is strange," adding that she missed experiencing the usual pregnancy milestones. "I don't get to be excited about the first kick. I don't get to be excited about, 'Oh now my baby bump is showing.' I don't get to be excited about my boobs filling up with milk. I mean, you know, you have this guilt, sadness," Kandi added. "So it's a joyous, yet interesting experience right now," Kandi explained.
The unborn baby will be Kandi and Todd's second child together, as they already share 3-year-old son Ace. The former is also a mother to 16-year-old Riley, while Todd has a 22-year-old daughter Kaela from a previous relationship.
