Kandi Burruss and her family were festival this Christmas season. The celebrity shared pictures from her holiday family photoshoots that were nothing short of fabulous.
Kandi’s mom, Joyce Jones, was in the holiday photos this year. The celebrity grandma wore sneakers in the family’s formal photoshoot, which matched the vibe of Kandi, her husband, and their kids. Another Christmas family photoshoot featured everyone in costume.
“Tis the season to be jolly,” Kandi wrote online. “I’m so thankful for my family,” the celebrity mom added. “They’re the best present I could ever receive!”
This year’s Christmas season was extra special as it was the first time Blaze Tucker performed in a holiday show. The youngster ran to her mom right before the performance, which was a scene Kandi recorded. “My Blazey Pooh had her first Christmas program today,” Kandi told her fans on December 17, 2021.
Blaze turned out to be a viral sensation online as more than 600,000 fans viewed the footage and like what they saw. “Too cute,” Shamea Morton said of the clip. “She’s just such a little cutie pie,” another fan shared.
Blaze Tucker is Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker’s youngest child. The Tuckers welcomed their daughter by way of a surrogate in 2019. Not everyone in Kandi’s tribe understood the surrogacy process, which led to a few hurtful comments.
Kandi recently told the press about a close family friend who asked if the celebrity mom would be able to bond with Blaze seeing as how a surrogate was giving birth to the child. “It really hurt my feelings,” Burruss told the press. “I don’t like really talking about it because it makes me emotional,” the celebrity mom said. “I don’t think she was trying to hurt my feelings,” Kandi added.
“She’s older, so I guess her initial thinking is like just because somebody doesn’t physically have their baby that they won’t be able to have that same bond as a mother who physically pushed the baby out,” Burruss continued. “And I can tell you for sure, if you ever had a doubt in your mind, that is not true.”
Kandi and Todd Tucker have two kids, Blaze and Ace, together. The celebrity couple parents four kids in all.
