Kim’s Boyfriend Kroy Biermann: The Man Behind the Tight Buns

The Atlanta Falcons defensive end recently made waves in the Real Housewives world, coming forward as the Baby Daddy of newly-preggers Kim Zolciak. This week we saw how their romance got started: Kim noticed his ass and he slipped her his digits. Aww, so sweet. Since it looks like Kroy's going to be sticking around for at least nine months or so, we figured we'd dig up some deets about him aside from the fact that you can bounce a quarter of his tush.

Born in 1985 (Go, Cougar Kim!) in Hardin, Montana, Kroy led an impressive career playing football for the University of Montana. In 2007, he received the Big Sky Conference Defensive MVP award, as well as earning the honor of becoming Montana's first-ever recipient of the Buck Buchanan Award, presented annually by The Sports Network to the top defensive player in Division I Football Championship Subdivision. Kroy got a change of scenery from the West to the East Coast when the Falcons selected him in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. So far, his performance has been solid. Just this season, Kim's man made headlines causing an interception, which he returned 41 yards for a touchdown. Nice!

If you're wondering how Kroy got that curious moniker, it turns out the entire Biermann clan has a thing for "K" names. Bored with the standard Kevins and Keiths, though, the football player's Mom turned to the phonebook for inspiration and settled on Kroy. With this K-obsession, at least Kim has one quality Kroy's family might approve of.
