New Year’s engagement news isn’t quite over yet. We already told you one Atlanta housewife got engaged over the holidays but it turns out there was another proposal on the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta” set. US Weekly just broke the news that Kandi Burruss and her boo of one year, line producer, Todd Tucker, are getting married!

Tucker, 39, popped the question on New Year’s Day, during a New Year’s celebration with friends at the couple’s home in Atlanta. (Among the party guests was fellow Atlanta Housewife Phaedra Parks, who’s currently expecting her second child with husband Apollo Nida.) After talking it over with Burruss’ daughter, 10-year-old Riley — who gave him her blessing — he got down on one knee and proposed to his love of more than a year with a two-carat diamond sparkler by Gregg Ruth.

The singer-songwriter, 36 — who has been engaged once before, to the late Ashley “A.J.” Jewell — was floored. “I was totally surprised,” she tells Us of the romantic proposal, adding that she even shed a few happy tears.

Awww! The couple reportedly already has a couple of dates in mind for the big day and is muddling over a few details like whether they will air their special ceremony for the world to see. As we all know, Kandi has had a rocky love life. Toward the end of 2008, she starting dating Ashley Jewel, whom she later became engaged to in January 2009. Sadly, on October 22 of that same year he past away from head injuries he sustained during a fight. Speaking on her struggle to find the man to finally settle down with, Kandi told US:

“I used to make jokes with my friends that I [was] part of the Forever Single Club.”

Now that she’s changed her mind about that, she’s also removing herself from the I don’t want anymore kids club, saying:

“That’s what I said before, but now I’m totally different.”

Congrats to one of our favorite housewives!

    • Mia

      Didn’t you see that travesty of a performance? She’s fabulous!

      • iT3ach

        You’re right! They say she’s crazy…she says she’s fabulous! And that’s about all she’ll be saying…she dang sure won’t be saying “yes” to any proposals…

        • Mia

          If someone proposes a lobotomy lets keep our fingers crossed and hope she goes for it!

  • TeahMonae

    Duh! Why wouldn’t he marry her? I mean Kandi’s a good catch. If somebody moved me into a mansion, took me on trips and flew me on helicopter rides, I’d put a ring on it too. I always wonder about Kandi’s rationale when it comes to men. Even Riley’s dad was a deadbeat and she got with him in the height of her Xscape/ writing for TLC days so she could have had anybody. I hope he’s geniune and it works out. I like that he got Riley’s blessing first cause she dont play! And on the last episode when he whispered to her that he adored her, it was the cutest thing ever!

    Kandi moved quick! She moved in, got in engaged and just integrated this man in her life less than two years. I guess…
