Mommy Mash Up: Is Newlywed Kandi Burruss Expecting?



Newlyweds Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker are ready for the babies and we couldn't be happier for the two!  After exchanging "I Do's" earlier this month, it is now rumored that Kandi may be expecting a little baby in the burner.

“We’re trying,” Kandi told In Touch Weekly. “We’re really looking forward to having kids together. I can’t wait to [have] one big family!” She also mentioned the lovebugs are hoping for one or two little ones in the future.

Kandi is already mother of 11-year-old daughter Riley and Todd has a 17-year-old daughter, Kalea, from a previous relationship. A few more children would bring this blended family altogether.

We watched Kandi and Todd document their love with much opposition from Mama Joyce (Kandi’s mama) on Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” where she met the television producer.

Tucker spoke of the pair’s children when previously interviewed on “The View” where he discussed Mamma Joyce’s issues with him. Tucker revealed how much Mama Joyce’s negative comments affect his current and future family.

Kandi and Todd have lived together for over a year pre-marriage and had their share of ups and downs, but luckily love (and babies!) will prevail.

Mama Joyce and even daughter Riley have had their bouts with Todd over time, but the trio (yes, minus Mama Joyce) seems to have come to an understanding. Burruss thanked supporters for their prayers and insists she is “blessed and highly favored” -- letting the world know just how magical her wedding day was once news broke.

"This is one of the best days of my life! I never imagined that I would marry my best friend. Todd's been that to me," Burruss told In Touch Weekly. "And to have just had the wedding of my dreams, it's all been so beautiful. Now it's time to party!"

Over the past few seasons, we’ve witnessed the couple fall in love, move in together and now so much more is on the horizon. We’re sending tons of congrats and can’t wait for a growing baby bump!

Ladies, do you have a blended family? What has been the ups and downs? Do you think it’s a good idea to “shack up” pre-marriage? What did you learn?

    I’m happy for her. I hope their union is blessed with as many babies as they want

  • tarrilove

    I hope that works out. They should be fine. Most of their kids they had separately are almost grown. So the kids they have together should have a good peaceful childhood. Sans, any jealous step siblings. Hopefully Riley will be off to college in a year. Because she’s adorable but she got her grandma’s mouth. “It wasn’t even a couple of months and you moving him all in my house”- Riley

    • MiaSara

      Riley is the only one that has any sense honestly. That girl has a very good head on her shoulders.

      • tarrilove

        But, it sounds like her grandma’s mouth with a filter. Hope shes good thats a lot new man and baby. After 11yrs of having your mom to yourself. Good change, but still a lot for a kid.

    • MsRickie

      College, she’s not even in high school yet. She’s like 11.

      • tarrilove

        Whew, I thought her and Todd daughter where close in age. Riley looks older than 11. Oh well, hope that works out? She’s been the only child for so long.

  • Nyomi DMV Mckenzie

    i really think kandi is so pretty, omg, Really hope they work out!!

  • PolkaDots

    They are equally yoked – both have children so it seems balanced even though it may sound weird to say. I think it should work. At least from the outside it looks like it would.

  • Cheryl Reid

  • Mary

    I Love Love Kandi & wish her all the happiness (baby would be soo loved)! I Love Mama Joyce 2 ! Nothing like a MOTHER’S LOVE ! I wish I had a mother that lOVE ME AS MUCH …her mother worked hard in a factory (not easy ) odd shift hours..Son died in a car accident (burying your child)/

  • Pearl

    Todd and Kandi are really a cute couple. The rest of the family just needs to chill. I feel Mama Joyce is a very unhappy person and she likes to spread misery. It is time for Todd and Kandi to start building their life and those that do not approve should move on.
