Kandi Burruss of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has been sharing quite a few photos of her new son, Ace Wells Tucker… but we’ve never quite gotten a good look until now.
Burruss is all about her coinz so she kept her baby’s face under wraps until she could secure that check! (smart move Kandi!) Now that the ink is dry, People magazine got the scoop and now that the ink is dry we can finally see the adorable infant up close & personal!
Check out photos of baby Ace + excerpts from Kandi’s interview below…

For Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker, their new baby boy was worth the wait! The couple welcomed their son Ace Wells on Jan. 6, but their road to becoming parents for the second time wasn’t easy.
“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.”
But after bringing Ace home from the hospital, Burruss and Tucker — who are already parents to Riley, 13, and Kaela, 19, their respective daughters from previous relationships — say their newborn son had them feeling like first-time parents.
“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.”
While the pair may have had a few questions about taking care of their new addition, the reality stars knew exactly what they wanted for his nursery décor.
“We wanted a safari theme because we met in Africa, but we didn’t want it to be over the top,” says Burruss.
“It’s safari chic,” adds Tucker. “Safari clean.”
Now that the family of five is settling into their new routine, the couple couldn’t be happier at home in Atlanta.
“I always wanted a boy so we were super excited because we have two girls and they give us much attitude,” Burruss jokes. “We were looking forward to having a boy.”

Now that Kandi has sold the first full faced photos, the family is free to post Ace’s pic and several have popped up online…
