Kandi Burruss is opening up a bit about being a mom, including a personal experience regarding a comment that proved hurtful as it relates to Burruss’ decision to use a surrogate for the birth of her last child.
On Oct. 21, Burruss opened up about motherhood to People’s new “Me Becoming A Mom” podcast, where she shared the hurtful comment someone made about her choice to have a child via surrogate. The reality star from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” — stepmom to Kaela Tucker, 25, and mom to Riley Burruss, 19, Ace Tucker, 5, and Blaze Tucker, 1 — welcomed her daughter Blaze via surrogate.
The decision to involve a surrogate came after Burruss experienced some difficulty with naturally conceiving. Burruss has already said in the past that the decision to use a surrogate was not an easy one, so when someone questioned it, she said, “it really hurt my feelings.”
