Kandi Burruss Is Engaged to Todd Tucker

The reality star's beau popped the question on New Year's Day.

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
