BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Nov. 4 (UPI) -- Kandi Burruss revealed she is expecting a baby boy with husband Todd Tucker an interview with The Rickey Smiley Morning Show on Wednesday.
The 39-year-old star told the radio program she and Tucker were "definitely" hoping for a son, but said they haven't chosen a name yet.
"Thanks loves for supporting me through this difficult journey," she later wrote on Facebook. "Y'all have been there to uplift me during trying times. I turned to you in the middle of the night with jokes and we laughed. Y'all are fam. I am happy to share the sex of #babytucker."
Burruss and Tucker have been together since 2011, and married in April 2014. The reality star is also mother to 13-year-old daughter Riley with ex-boyfriend Russell Spencer, while Tucker is dad to daughter Kaela from a previous relationship.
Burruss and her husband struggled to conceive, and were "thrilled" to announce they are expecting in July. The reality star missed The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars' recent trip to Jamaica, but confirmed NeNe Leakes returned while filming.
"She ain't gone," the star revealed. "Apparently she came back on the trip. We've had a couple people to come back. Sheree [Whitfield] came back. NeNe came back ... I think this year is kind of crazy because we've had a lot of faces reappear."
Burruss has starred on the Bravo series since season 2, and will return for season 8 with Cynthia Bailey, Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams come Oct. 8. Newcomer Kim Fields will also appear as a series regular on the season.
