Kandi Burruss’ 1-Year Old has 300+K Instagram Followers and His Own Baby Products Line

kanditoddace

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss‘ son Ace Wells Tucker turned one yesterday and at that tender age, the young squire has over 300,000 followers on Instagram and a successful baby product line named for him, Raising Ace.

Burruss, who made millions penning chart-topping platinum hits for pops acts like TLC, Mariah Carey, P!nk, N’Sync, Destiny’s Child, Usher and Alicia Keys, is a sophisticated business mogul who runs a direct sales adult toy line called Bedroom Kandi, an online talk show, Kandi Coated Nights, her own record label and is working on opening up a restaurant in Atlanta with husband Todd Tucker, a freelance producer who met Burruss while working production for Bravo  TV.


It was a no-brainer to convert all those adoring fans of their infant son into potential buyers. The line focuses on three iconic animals; the panda bear who just like a baby eats and sleeps all day; the giraffe who with its long neck represents the growing baby into toddlerhood; and the fox who represents the transformation into a clever young child, the About page reads. “Building on this theme, the Raising Ace designs are represented in both iconic and illustrative vintage inspired forms throughout the collection,” it concludes.

Because social good is always a great way to do biz, they promise to donate a percentage of the profits from sales to non-profit organizations that support single parents, parents struggling to get by, and organizations that promote parenting education. Todd Tucker, Kandi’s husband,  was raised by a single mom and has a daughter Kaela from a previous relationship who lives with him and his step daughter Riley, who Burruss raised as a single mom, herself.

Designer Mathieu Pung is the brains behind the high quality unisex children’s products with a unique design style. Items range from $5.99 to $39.99 and are of a modest and affordable price point for the cute designs and top quality product you receive. Good stuff! Go get it, Ace!

To celebrate his birthday, he offered his followers 20% off his line! Cute and marketing savvy!

Shocker: RHOA’s Kandi Burruss shared a Breastfeeding Pic on Instagram and Did NOT Get Shamed

 

kandi burruss breastfeeding

Yippeee! Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss posted an Instagram photo of herself multitasking and nursing her son and didn’t get any hate! Yes, that’s news.


It is also progress because each time a celebrity woman (like Jessie James Decker, Alyssa Milano, and others) has done that she’s gotten plenty of shame comments from people who think it is too much to share and should stay out of public light, or is the baby being used for attention or vanity.

Not this time! Perhaps it helps to cut off the haters in the caption like Burruss did.

“This #breastfeeding stuff is no joke,” the biz mogul and platinum singer/songwriter wrote. “@sewjodie came over to my house to wash my hair & while she was washing @acewellstucker started going crazy! He doesn’t care that I have a head full of shampoo. He wants to eat now! Lol! This pic might be a bit much to share on the gram but this is my reality right now. Save your negative comments… #KandiKoatedMilk.”

Cute! And how about Ace has his own IG account and isnt’ even a full month old yet? ha!

Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker welcomed their son on January 6. This is the first child together for the couple that married in 2014.

The Bedroom Kandi entrepreneur is mom to 13-year old daughter Riley and Tucker has a 19-year old daughter, Kaela, both from previous relationships.

Kudos Kandi!!

For the record, Tamera Mowry-Housley got lots of love from the time she posted a breastfeeding photo.

With Two Daughters in the Family, #RHOA’s Kandi Burruss Reveals She’s Having a….

kandi and todd

The wait is over on the sex of #BabyTucker

This Sunday before the premiere of Real Housewives of Atlanta, its star Kandi Burruss and her husband cast-mate, TV productions manager and business owner Todd Tucker announced on Instagram that the couple are expecting a bouncing baby boy!


Before then, Burruss previewed the news on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show.
“No, you didn’t [read I’m having twins]! No! I got one in there. Yes, we’re having a boy!” she revealed. “Oh, yeah, definitely [we wanted a son]. We both got girls now, so we really wanted a boy,” she shared on The Rickey Smiley Morning Show. “We can’t agree on names right now. We keep going back and forth.”

It will be the first for each. Burruss has a teen daughter Riley, 13, and Tucker also has a teen daughter, Kaela, 19, both from previous relationships.

The news was announced with a bittersweet massage given that Tucker’s mom Sharon, who had been featured in several episodes of the show, suddenly passed away last year from a stroke:


“That’s baby Tucker!!! It’s a BOY!!!,” Tucker captioned his Instagram share of the ultrasound confirming the baby’s gender. “I wish my mom was here for this! She wanted this more than anything!!! But I know she see’s everything that’s happening and she’s happy and proud of us!!!” #blessed #MamaSharon”

Tears. Congrats!

Mom-to-Be Kandi Burruss Isn’t Slowing Down, From Ebony Cover Story to New Family Restaurant

kandi burruss update

Second-time Mom-to-Be Kandi Burruss, star of BravoTV‘s Real Housewives of Atlanta, is also in the running for the hardest working preggers celeb.

The entrepreneur already has a successful adult toy individual franchise company (Bedroom Kandi), a popular late night web show (Kandi Koated Nights), a clothing boutique in Atlanta (TAGS) and a rising music indie label, all while balancing several reality TV shows, to add to her decade career penning chart toppers for music industry’s biggest names.


She recently announced that she and her husband Entertainment Producer Todd Tucker are planning to open a family restaurant.  “My hubby & I are putting together our family restaurant & getting some tips from @chefjaaion. #coming2015 #ILoveToEatSoYouKnowItsGonnaBeGood #Foodie,” the former 90s girl band singer captioned a photo of herself with Tucker and friends on Instagram recently.

The Grammy-award winning multi-platinum songwriter also just wrapped a family maternity shoot with Atlanta-based celebrity photographer Drexina Nelson.

“My girls @latashawright @gochasalon & @shunmelson got me & my family right for our photoshoot with @drexinanelson. #BabybumpPics,” the pretty preginista captioned the photo of her glam squad who hooked her up for the photo shoot.

This phenomenal-looking shoot was right after appearing with her entire family in the infamous Ebony magazine “Black Family ISSUES” edition with the controversial photo of a shattered image of The Huxtables from the famous 80s show The Cosby Show on the cover.

“I finally got my copy of the new #EbonyMagazine family issue that includes my family!” Burruss captioned the IG photo collage of the images of her family in the magazine. “Our family discusses the topic of blended families. Thank you @kiernamayo for including us in this issue! Wow I can’t believe my family is included in the issue with the Obama family & the controversial cover of the #Huxtables. #CosbyShow #RHOA #FirstFamily #Presidential #Obama”

Fab!

Burruss also recently supported another one of our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alums, Rasheeda, who recently launched a boutique herself called Pressed, also in the ATL. Good Stuff.

“I stopped by to see my sis @rasheedadabosschick. Got a few goodies for @rileyburruss at #Pressed while I was there. #FriendsSupportFriends #RasheedaAlwaysBusy #BossChick”. Nice!

Counting down to Baby Tucker. No word still on the gender. Burruss and Tucker each have one daughter from previous relationships, Riley (Burruss’) and Kayla (Tucker’s).

How BravoTV Hid Kandi Burruss’ Pregnancy For #RHOA Promo Pics

kandi style

Coco Austin isn’t the only one who can hide her bump under clothing. In the promo video and photos for the next season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss doesn’t look pregnant there tho she was at the time.  Bravo TV uses promotional images year round and needs them to be evergreen, meaning they aren’t tied to any particular time in history or event. So they had to get creative with disguising Burruss’ pregnancy using clothing.

kandi burruss bravo


“When @bravotv decided they wanted to camouflage my baby bump I was like “how are we gonna do that???” But my team did a great job of helping me get cute with the rest of the ladies of #RHOA! Thank you,” Burruss captioned a photo of herself in an off white blouse and shimmery metalic mini- skirt leaning strategically against the couch so the blouse falls in the right places.

If you are pregnant but hiding it from co-workers or others because you are not too far along or simply don’t want to share too soon, check out our past post with ideas on what clothing is best to hide a pregnancy.

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss baby bump sure is growing. She showed off her tummy in a pregnancy progression photo that she shared with her fans and followers on Instagram.

She also gave them a clue as to when she is due typing in the caption, “My #Babybump is getting out there now! Can’t wait to meet you #BabyTucker! 😘 My baby is supposed to be a #Capricorn. Bringing in #2016 with a bang! Shirt available at TagsAtl.com @tagsboutique.”

This typically means December to Early January. Nice!

The business mogul, well-known for writing hit songs, also stopped by the Steve Harvey Show for a fun segment recently.

Awesome Sauce!

Burruss stays busy running her very successful adult toy  Bedroom Kandi that even has its own convention and her Atlanta clothing boutique Tags.

But she takes a break for maternity shopping and while out on a run to restock her wardrobe recently with her co-star on the show Kenya Moore, they thought it would be fun to have Moore put on one of the baby bumps those stores have to give pregnant women an idea what an outfit will look like when they are further advanced in their pregnancy.

We think is suits her perfectly!

On a sad note, her former cast member and Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Kim Zolciak-Biermann suffered a mini stroke after a flight on her way back  home from practicing and performing as a contestant on Dancing With the Stars.

She posted a photo of herself in the hospital on Instagram.

 

Fortunately, the Tardy for the Party reality TV star is recovering at home and says she hopes she will be cleared by the doctor to continue on the show.  A competitor with her on that show is another Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Tamar Braxton-Herbert who is a top contender and the one to watch.
