Todd Tucker and Riley Burruss

Over the weekend, singer Kandi Burruss Instagram’d this holiday image of her fiancé Todd Tucker and her daughter, Riley Burruss, on a Jet Ski.

Riley is not a little girl anymore. She is at the stage where she is self-conscious and aware of the changes her body is going through.
