"We named our beautiful baby boy Ace because I wanted something unique," she told E! News. "When he becomes school age, hopefully he won't have to worry about another person in the class having his name."

Burruss also has a 13-year-old daughter Riley from a previous relationship.

On the show, which is a few months behind, Burruss is very pregnant but appears to be doing well. She even shot a video at six months pregnant and hid it well.
