Kroy Biermann and his wife Kim Zolciak may have their hands full with 1-month-old twins Kane Ren and Kaia Rose, but one of our favorite relationships to watch has always been the one between Kroy and Brielle Zolciak, who now goes by Brielle Biermann.

When Kroy first came into Kim’s life a few years ago, Brielle and her younger sister Ariana were understandably questionable of this new fella, but it didn’t take long for the girls to fall in love with Kroy and his sweet nature, and he loved them back right away.

We cried our eyes out during last season’s finale of Don’t Be Tardy when Kroy headed to the courthouse to formally adopt both girls, and even though Kroy and Brielle have had typical father-daughter arguments along the way, it’s easy to see that there’s plenty of love and admiration there on both sides.

When Kroy tore his Achilles tendon back in September and had to sit out the rest of the Falcons football season after he had surgery to repair the injury, the family was rightfully worried about their football-playing patriarch. The Falcons are currently done for the season after failing to make it to the playoffs, and even though Kroy is on injured reserve until he’s fully healed, Elle doesn’t like it one bit.

“I miss watching my dad play football,” she tweeted on January 8.

Hopefully Brielle and the rest of the family won’t have to wait too long for Kroy to take the field again. The defensive end recently said his recovery is going well, and even though the Falcons could drop him from their roster before next season, we’re crossing our fingers that he stays put.
