Kroy Biermann is turning 28 today, y'all, and Kim Zolciak couldn't be more thrilled. Among the many messages the former Real Housewife of Atlanta sent out on Twitter and Instagram, we adored this heartfelt sentiment she posted with a picture montage of her man:

"Happy 28th birthday to the most incredible husband and father ever! We love you beyonds words and are so grateful for you! We are so proud of you! Your dedication, commitment and love for our family supersedes anything I could of ever dreamed of! Can't wait to celebrate tonight!"

Here are five reasons we love Kroy almost as much as Kim does!

5. He's Adorable and We're Not Just Talking About His Buns

True, Kroy's sexy donk is what first caught Kim's eye, but his face isn't bad either. In fact, he's mad cute! From his golden hair to those gorgeous blue eyes, it's no wonder Kim keeps popping out babies.

4. He's Super Laid Back

To put it mildly, Kim can be a little bit intense. Kroy's chill attitude is exactly what she needed to keep her balanced. Plus, any guy who can impress a roomful of Real Housewives has to be laid-back.

3. He Breaks the Football Player Stereotype

Let's face it: NFL players don't have the best reputation when it comes to treating their women right (ahem, Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson). But, so far, Kroy has been nothing short of a perfect gentleman. It's downright refreshing!

2. He's an Amazing Father to All of Kim's Kids

Nevermind the two babies he fathered with Kim and the two that are on the way — Kroy is also an incredible Dad to Kim's daughters, Brielle and Ariana. To make sure they knew that they are just as important as his natural children, he even adopted the girls. Who does that?!

1. He Loves Kim Just the Way She Is

Above all, Kroy loves Kim, and he loved her before the babies, when she was smoking like a chimney and cussing up a storm. We couldn't be happier for the mama!
