'The Real Housewives of Atlanta': Kroy Asks Kim's Father For His Blessing To Propose (VIDEO)

Kim Zolciak's father Joe seemed like he was already completely behind Kroy proposing to his daughter on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" (Sun., 9 p.m. ET on Bravo), but he was also clearly touched that Kroy took the time to ask for his blessing beforehand. It's a tradition that's dying out in the Western world.

And while he had him, Joe decided to lob a few queries at Kroy to make sure he gave the right answers. Kroy confirmed that this was "beyond a lifetime commitment," and he'd already said that he thinks of Kim's daughters as his own. All that was left was for Joe to give his blessing.

"Karen and I support it 100+%," he said. "So welcome to the family. We'd be more than honored for you to be our son-in-law."

At the end of the show, Kim shared the big news with her girlfriends, while also sharing with the viewing audience that the proposal apparently happened off camera. That's a pretty big statement on a reality television show like this that Kroy wanted that private moment to remain just between them. It's a testament to how significant and important it was to him.
