After struggling with infertility, Kandi Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker, are now the proud parents of the son they dreamed of for so long. While both have daughters from previous relationships, this is their first son together.
He arrived yesterday, weighing 7 pounds, 6 ounces, and they gave him a name to reflect just how special he is to them – Ace Wells.
The Real Housewives star told E! News they wanted something unique and hope that when he is in school, he’s the only Ace there. Wells was a more sentimental choice, as it was Todd’s mother’s last name. Together, the whole name just oozes coolness.
As cool and slick as it sounds, the meaning behind the name is pretty powerful as well: unity. In Latin, Ace means “first in luck,” which is never a bad thing either.

It may not be as unique as Kandi and Todd think, however, as the name is gaining popularity. In 2006, it was ranked 842 on the Social Security Administration’s list of top baby names, and by 2014 it ranked 379.
Famous Aces that come to mind include Ace Ventura, the fictional pet detective, and Jessica Simpson’s son, Ace Knute.
In any case, congratulations to the happy couple. No matter how many others have the same name, he’ll always be their number one.
