In April, Burruss got teary-eyed during the season 11 RHOA reunion as she recalled the emotional advice Andy Cohen gave her about using a surrogate to expand her family.
“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,” the Grammy winner said of their conversation while appearing on Busy Tonight in February. “‘And to say she’s your baby’s mom is taking away from you.’ It made me feel better.”
Burruss spent all season trying to convince Tucker to use a surrogate to try for another child, a decision she came to after a high-risk pregnancy with Ace and her history with fibroids: noncancerous growths in the uterus.
Eventually, after meeting with a potential candidate through her OBGYN (Married to Medicine‘s Dr. Jackie Walters), Tucker agreed.
