Kandi Burruss is getting ready for the arrival of her third child.
While talking to Us Weekly at Apple’s “Truth Be Told” premiere at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star dished on how she’s preparing for her bundle of joy — who will be birthed by a surrogate.
“Right now, we’re trying to finish the room!” the 43-year-old remarked. “I’m trying to remember everything that I need to have so that we’re ready when she gets here. I’m super excited, but I’m feeling like I’m behind schedule as far as getting ready.”
Part of feeling “behind schedule” is because the reality TV personality isn’t carrying this baby.
“Because I’m not physically seeing my body change, it’s like [I] don’t keep track of the time the same,” the Xscape band member exclaimed. “Like, I should have had my baby’s room together a long time ago! I’m just judging it by when I see her… and I’m like, ‘Wow, OK. We’re getting there.’ But it took a long time for her to show. So it was like, ‘I got more time than I need!’ And now I’m like, ‘Whoa, we’re in a rush right now.’”
During a recent episode of her hit Bravo show, the “No Scrubs” co-songwriter revealed her gestational carrier was initially pregnant with twins, but later lost an embryo.
“We actually were supposed to be having twins, and then one of them didn’t continue,” the Grammy winner said.
“I was sad at first, but then I just had to be grateful that the one made it,” she continued.
Burruss shares 17-year-old daughter Riley with ex Russell Spencer, and 3-year-old son Ace with husband Todd Tucker. Kandi is also stepmother to Tucker’s 22-year-old daughter Kaela.
