Love is in the air!
Kandi Burress, Grammy-Award winning songwriter, entrepreneur, former Xscape bandmate and “Real Housewives of Atlanta” castmate, is the latest celebrity to announce an engagement.
She is headed down the aisle to marry her boyfriend, line producer Todd Thomas. Kandi and Todd first met in 2011 while filming the fourth season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” They were featured on the current (fifth) season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” most recently in an episode where Kandi threw a surprise birthday party for Todd. When everyone shouted “Surprise,” Todd embraced Kandi and whispered “I adore you, y’know.”
Us Magazine shares details of the proposal:
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.
This will be the first marriage for both. Congrats to the happy couple!
