In September, PEOPLE confirmed Burruss and Tucker were expecting another child. Their journey with surrogacy has been documented on season 12 of RHOA.

Earlier this month, on the premiere, Burruss 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.”
