11 Times Kandi Burruss Was the Perfect Mom (PHOTOS)
Kandi Burruss first became a mother in August 2002 when she welcomed daughter Riley, but this Mother’s Day — which falls on Sunday, May 8 — is the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s first as a mom of two.
The 39-year-old welcomed son Ace back in January, and she’s really grown as a mom since expanding her family. Whether taking Ace to church or outfitting him in the coolest and cutest clothes, our girl Kandi is always thinking of her little man.

Even with Ace monopolizing a big chunk of her day, Kandi still makes time to bond with Riley, 13, and step daughter Kaela, 19, whom the reality star treats as her own.
Scroll down and take a peek at 11 photos that prove this hardworking mama is practically perfect!
Her Kids Are Really Happy
C’mon, have you ever seen such a joyful baby?! Kandi must be doing something right, because Ace always has a broad smile plastered on his face.
She Fights For Her Kids
Today they were having a picnic for all the babies that our fertility specialist #ACRM helped to conceive. This was our fertility doctor #DoctorHasty. #ACRM is very private so the #RHOA cameras weren't allowed. @therealdrjackie delivered @acewellstucker & #DrLisaHasty helped us conceive him. I love them both!
So far as we know Kandi didn’t struggle to get pregnant with Riley, but with her 40th birthday fast approaching, Ace was a different story. She and Todd resorted to in vitro to conceive and now they’re beyond thankful for their bouncing baby boy.

She Treats Her Step Daughter as Her Own
Kandi inherited a step daughter, Kaela, when she married Todd in 2014, and from day one she has treated the teen like her own flesh and blood.
She Takes Her Kids to Church
Kandi knows the importance of instilling good values in her little ones, so she makes sure to take Ace to church even though we bet he’d much rather be enjoying a good nap!
She Makes Sure Kids Have Fancy Digs
Riley’s room is music-themed, while Ace’s nursery is a safari experience. Our takeaway? If Kandi Burruss is your mom you’re going to be living in the lap of luxury.

She Knows the Importance of Quality Time
With a newborn in the house Kandi likely doesn’t have as much free time as she once did, but she makes a point of spending quality time with Riley, even with her ridiculously hectic schedule.
She Brings Her Kids to Work
The mom of two has always been a workhorse, but nothing is more important than her children. Case in point: The former Xscape member brought newborn Ace to work so he could snuggle with mom.

She’s Mastered the Art of Multitasking
This #breastfeeding stuff is no joke. @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
When you’re as busy a mom as Kandi, multitasking is a must. Here she is breastfeeding Ace while getting her hair done.
