Blaze Tucker is blazing ahead-literally! The 10-month-old daughter of Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker has taken her first steps.
Proud mom Kandi was there to capture the moment on film, which she later shared on Instagram. She captioned, “She did it! @blazetucker took her first couple of steps! She hasn’t even crawled but she decided to walk first. I’m so glad I didn’t miss this moment. I’m smiling from ear to ear right now!”
Blaze was born to Kandi and husband Todd Tucker via surrogate on November 22, 2020. The couple are also parents to 4-year-old son Ace Tucker, who was born through IVF.
“It was a blessing we was able to get [our son] Ace through IVF, but in the process of doing IVF, we still have two more embryos,” Burruss told The Daily Dish in 2019. “And with that being said, as soon as we had Ace, we knew that we would want to possibly use our other embryos, but I had a high-risk pregnancy last time, so that’s why we decided we would consider surrogacy.”
Burruss also revealed that her surrogate was initially pregnant with twins, but one of the embryos was lost.
“We actually was supposed to be having twins, and then one of them didn’t continue,” Burruss explained, adding, “I was sad at first, but then I just had to be grateful that the one made it.”
