Kandi Burruss shared a photo of her sleeping daughter, Blaze Tucker, with her followers on Instagram. The one-month-old baby was delivered by a surrogate using Kandi's previously frozen egg, fertilized by her husband Todd Tucker's sperm.

In the photo taken by baby photographer @weelovephotography, little Blaze sleeps peacefully while swaddled in a blanket. A headband ringed with intricate flowers and pearls adorns her head.

In another post on Thursday, Kandi shared her IVF journey with her followers. She explained her reasons for using a surrogate (pictured) to carry her and Todd's second child after suffering complications during her pregnancy with her son, Ace Tucker.

"My pregnancy with Ace came with many complications, which is why our family decided to use a surrogate," she wrote.

"My first daughter, Riley, was conceived and birthed into the world as easily as could be. Little did I know that 13 years later when I wanted to continue this story, that I would be faced with the struggle of infertility due to non-cancerous fibroids."

The 43-year-old mother-of-three said she overcame her fears that the surrogate would keep her baby or that she wouldn't bond with the child.

In vitro fertilization (IVF) is an expensive procedure for women who can't conceive on their own. Each "cycle" can cost as much as $15,000 and is not guaranteed to produce results.

Below are excerpts from Kandi's post:

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage. At least that is what most of us are taught, but no one ever shares that the journey to the baby carriage can come with sadness, doubts, and fertility obstacles. My first daughter, Riley, was conceived and birthed into the world as easily as could be. Little did I know that 13 years later when I wanted to continue this story, that I would be faced with the struggle of infertility due to non-cancerous fibroids.

My pregnancy with Ace came with many complications, which is why our family decided to use a surrogate (pictured here!). When we looked into this I went through a series of emotions and questions like: how is this going to affect my bond with my child? what if the surrogate tries to keep my baby? what are others going to think? Will the baby share DNA with the surrogate from the pregnancy even though it is my eggs?

She continued:

"I've had an amazing husband to lean on, and my surrogate has been so encouraging, but it's been great to talk to other women who really understand my fears and pain firsthand. All in all I have to say to each of you: your journey to the baby carriage may not be the same as someone else’s, but you are not alone in this journey to motherhood."

Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker are expecting another child via in vitro fertilization (IVF) and a surrogate.

According to editors at E!, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her husband Todd will soon add another bouncing baby to their family.

The former Xscape star's surrogate journey will be documented on the upcoming season 12 of RHOA.

Though IVF was routine among white Hollywood stars for decades, the IVF trend among urban stars was popularized by part-time singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter, 39, who reportedly had all three of her IVF children delivered via surrogates.

Kandi took advantage of IVF to conceive her son Ace Tucker and deliver him herself.

Earlier this year, the 43-year-old reality star and part-time singer expressed her hopes to expand her family to include another baby.

"It was a blessing we was able to get (our son) Ace through IVF, but in the process of doing IVF, we still have two more embryos. And with that being said, as soon as we had Ace, we knew that we would want to possibly use our other embryos, but I had a high-risk pregnancy last time, so that's why we decided we would consider surrogacy," Kandi explained to The Daily Dish. "Todd and I are both nervous about it. I think it's easier for Todd to handle or deal with because as a man he's used to somebody else carrying the baby."

Kandi also got advice on the process from openly ghey TV host Andy Cohen, who welcomed a son in February 2019 via surrogate.

"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,'" Kandi recalled during an appearance on Busy Tonight. "'And to say she's your baby's mom is taking away from you.' It made me feel better."

Kandi is already mom to daughter Riley, 17, and Todd is dad to daughter Kaela, 22.

Another surrogate mother was commissioned to carry a baby girl for former 'The View' host Sherri Shepherd, 47, and her now-estranged husband Lamar Sally.
