I revealed a few days ago that have taken the next step and have officially gotten engaged.

Details PLUS a photo of Kandi’s huge rock below…
Kandi, 36, accepted her beau’s proposal on New Year’s Day and with it, a gorgeous two-carat white diamond sparkler by ring designer Gregg Ruth.
The couple revealed the news of their engagement exclusively to Us Weekly on Jan. 15, and in the process also spilled some details on the story behind Burruss’ ring, which Tucker had shipped in from Las Vegas after his fiancee spotted it on a Housewives trip and called to tell him about it.
He reportedly carried the ring around with him for “three to four months” before finally popping the question.
The romantic proposal went down shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Jan. 1, during a New Year’s celebration at the couple’s home in Atlanta, the lovebirds tell Us.
After talking it over with Burruss’ daughter, 10-year-old Riley — who gave Tucker her blessing — the 39-year-old producer got down on one knee and proposed to his love of more than a year in front of their family and friends, including Burruss’ fellow Atlanta Housewife Phaedra Parks. (source)
You may recall that the Grammy award winning songwriter was once engaged to the late Ashley “A.J.” Jewell
, who she was with during her first season on the show.
Kandi says she was “totally surprised” about Tucker’s proposal but was also “so excited.”
“I used to make jokes with my friends that I [was] part of the Forever Single Club,” Burruss tells Us, adding that she and her hubby-to-be already have some ideas about their wedding.
“That’s what I said before, but now I’m totally different.”
Again… congratulations to the happy couple!!!
(…and hopefully that check has cleared so it’s no longer a “secret”.)
