Josh Brasted/FilmMagicKandi Burruss‘ career is going full throttle with music, television, restaurant, and cosmetics projects, but personally, she’s frustrated by her fertility problems. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star and her husband, Todd Tucker, are trying for a third child together.
“We’re definitely trying to figure out ways to grow our family,” Burruss tells Essence. “I know a lot of people thought that meant that I was pregnant. But I’m not pregnant. Let’s be clear. I saw that floating around the Internet.”
“Unfortunately, it’s not happening,” the 42-year-old singer says of her efforts to conceive. “For years and years, I was on birth control [and I] didn’t even know that I didn’t need it anymore.”
Burruss offers advice for other women who are also coping with fertility issues.
“It’s about being patient and knowing what’s for you is for you, and pray about it, and look at all your options and whatever you can try to make happen, make it happen if you can,” she says.
The Grammy winner is continuing to perform with Xscape, and she plans to release a solo EP early next year.
