Kandi Burruss and Ace Wells Tucker for People Magazine

*“Real Housewives of Atlanta” couple Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker teamed with People magazine to reveal the first photo of their son, Ace Wells Tucker.

“We really worked hard for him,” Burruss, 39, who struggled to get pregnant before turning to IVF treatment, tells People exclusively. “It was a long process and lots of needles.”

The couple welcomed their son Ace Wells on Jan. 6. He joins big sister Riley, 13 (Kandi’s daughter) and Kaela, 19, (Todd’s daughter).

“It’s like starting all over,” says Burruss. “We were like, ‘Which bottles do we use? What diapers do we buy?’ Simple stuff that you would think I already know and I don’t. It’s silly.”

The pair had a “Coming to America” themed wedding to represent their initial meeting in Africa, and the motif continues with Ace’s nursery.

“We didn’t want it to be over the top,” says Burruss.

“It’s safari chic,” adds Tucker. “Safari clean.”
