Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak is engaged to Atlanta Falcons star Kroy Biermann, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
The couple – who are expecting their first baby together next year – have not gone public with the news yet, but they plan to marry before the popular reality TV star gives birth.
Zolciak, 32, recently confirmed that she was in fact expecting a child with the 25-year-old NFL player following weeks of speculation that she was pregnant.
A source told RadarOnline.com: “Kim and Kroy are engaged, and only a few people know about it.
“They wanted to announce it in a national magazine, but Kim was so excited that she told a couple of close friends about it.
“Obviously, they are both really happy about both the baby and their engagement and cannot wait to start their new lifes together.
“Kroy proposed to her and bought her a substantial ring which she has shown to a few friends, although she is not wearing it in public yet.
“Kim is actually in her second trimester with her pregnancy now, and the couple are still in talks about getting their own spin-off reality show.
“And if this does not happen then she will want to re-negotiate her terms on The Real Housewives Of Atlanta if her wedding and new baby were to be featured on the show.
“The other cast members are publicly backing Kim and Kroy but privately there are some jealousies because Kim is very much in the spotlight right now and not everyone is happy about that.”
Zolciak confirmed her baby news last week in an interview with Life & Style Magazine saying, “I was surprised! While it wasn’t planned, God clearly has a bigger and better plan for us and we’re excited.”
In October, an ex-boyfriend of Zolciak’s spilled the beans of her pregnancy. “I was appalled and disgusted by that. I wasn’t through my first trimester – you never know what could happen,” Kim told the magazine.
Zolciak, 32, has two daughters (ages 13 and 9) from a previous marriage, and has been dating Biermann, 25, a defensive end for the Atlanta Falcons, since this past May.
