“Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Kim Zolciak fed Life & Style magazine her latest achievement: a second baby with Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann is forthcoming.
She told the magazine her current nine-month-old son KJ was an accident but this second child was totally planned. Zolciak, 33, is now four months pregnant and based on the photo Life & Style provided, she is showing. (Biermann is 26.)
She has two girls from a previous relationship – Ariana, 9, and Brielle, 14.
Bravo is about to wrap the fourth season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” which has shown signs of viewer fatigue. Ratings have been lagging significantly behind last season year over year the past few weeks. Not that it’s dying by any means. The show still drew 2.5 million viewers this past Sunday and is averaging about 2.8 million season three, remaining the most popular of any “Housewives” franchise. (In comparison, AMC’s season finale of ‘The Walking Dead” at the same time brought in 9 million viewers.)
On the show this season, Zolciak has been increasingly disengaged from the focal plot twists. She had her baby KJ while the show was taping and as a result, skipped out on a trip to South Africa. Nonetheless, she does appear happier since Biermann showed up in her life in May of 2010 compared to when she was battling with “Big Poppa.”
Her life for the past two years has been chronicled consistently by Life & Style magazine. She feeds the magazine scoops for what is presumed to be a nice chunk of change. She told them exclusively about her lesbian relationship, gave them photos of her pregnancy with KJ, then photos of the baby and the marriage.
In all likelihood, this is her final season on “Real Housewives.” She has a new spinoff show “Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding” focused on her and Biermann which debuts April 26. Bravo taped the show last fall when the couple got married right after finishing with “Real Housewives.”
[UPDATE: 2:58 p.m. Many of you are skeptical she is 33 years old. I checked Nexis, which has all sorts of public data about people, and her birthday is May 19, 1978. And someone found her high school freshman yearbook photo from 1993. Do the math.]
