Real Housewife of Atlanta having a baby with Falcons' Biermann

One week after Chad Ochocinco(notes) announced his engagement to a reality television star, another NFL player is in the news for having a baby with one. Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann(notes) and his girlfriend, "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kim Zolciak, are expecting their first child.

Zolciak broke the news to Life & Style Magazine.

"I was surprised!" she said. "While it wasn't planned, God clearly has a bigger and better plan for us and we're excited."

Biermann, who had a game-clinching interception return for a touchdown in Atlanta's Week 5 victory over Cleveland, appears to be pleased with the news. He can be seen smiling while posing for pictures with Zolciak for the magazine. The third-year player is shown with his arms wrapped around his girlfriend's pregnant belly.

The 32-year-old Zolciak has been on the Bravo reality show since 2008. She has two daughters from a previous relationship and refers to the girl's father as "Big Poppa." According to my girlfriend, viewers don't know the identity of Big Poppa, but seeing as how the youngest daughter is 9, I have conclusively ruled out The Notorious B.I.G.

You'll be shocked to know that in addition to wanting to be an actress, Zolciak also wants to be a musician. According to Wikipedia, her first single "Tardy for the Party" hit No. 80 on iTunes in 2009.

I don't know about you, but I've got a good feeling about these two.
