Kandi Burruss is getting another chance to walk down the aisle! The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is engaged to her beau, Todd Tucker, Us Weekly confirms. 

Tucker, a line producer, popped the question to the R&B singer-songwriter (and sex toy expert) on New Year's Day in front of a small group of friends gathered at their Atlanta home. Among them was Kandi's RHOA co-star Phaedra Parks, who is expecting her second child with husband Apollo Nida

"I was totally surprised," says Burruss. "I used to make jokes with my friends that I [was] part of the Forever Single Club. That's what I said before, but now I'm totally different."

But getting down on one knee was perhaps not the most nerve-wracking thing Tucker did on New Year's Day. He first had to get the blessing of Kandi's 10-year-old daughter, Riley. Burruss was previously engaged to the late A.J. Jewell, who died in 2011 after he was shot in the head during a car chase. 

The couple have yet to finalize their wedding date, nor do we know if the occasion will be filmed for the Real Housewives of Atlanta
