With four kids under the age of four living under one roof, hectic is one word you could use to describe reality-TV star Kim Zolciak’s life. Following the Season 3 premiere of Bravo’s “Don’t Be Tardy,” the former “Real Housewife” is updating fans on her family of eight, claiming that her life has yet to slow down since Bravo’s cameras have stopped rolling.
According to Zolciak, being a mom to six kids: Brielle, 17, Ariana, 13, KJ, 3, Kash, 2, and 8-month-old twins Kaia and Kane, is no easy task. “It’s chaotic from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week,” Zolciak, 36, recently told People Magazine.
One thing her jam-packed schedule always includes? Alone time with her husband, NFL defensive end Kroy Biermann, 28. “We tend to have a glass of wine at night just by ourselves when everyone’s in bed,” Zolciak said.
Despite the pandemonium that comes with simultaneously raising two teenagers, two toddlers and two infants, Zolciak says she wouldn’t trade the insanity for anything. “My priority is my kids,” she said. “They just consume my life.”

The youngsters take up so much of Zolciak's time and attention, in fact, that her Bravo crew has had to readjust to filming most of her reality series from within the confines of her Atlanta estate. “I want to focus on getting them off and into school and I don’t want anyone else doing this at this age,” Zolciak said of her time spent with her offspring.
While the Bravo star may be happy with her large brood (which she deemed the “Biermann Bunch” during the Season 3 premiere Thursday), Zolciak wasn’t shy in admitting that the recent addition of husband Kroy and her four youngest children (Brielle and Ariana are from two prior relationships), was nothing short of a surprise.
“I thought I was done with my girls,” said Zolciak, who for four seasons starred along her two oldest on Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” “If I never got married again, I was okay. And if I never had any more children, I was okay, too. I was in a great place and them bam!” Zolciak said, adding of her new life, “It’s incredible.”
How many more kids can fans expect from the Biermann bunch in the future? Zero, if the TV personality has anything to say about it. “Our family is complete!” Zolciak recently dished to a Twitter fan, WetPaint.com reports.
Zolciak and Biermann tied the knot in November 2011 after one year of dating. The couple welcomed their first child, Kroy “KJ” Jagger Jr. in June 2011. Thirteen months later, their second son, Kash Kade, was born.
Biermann legally adopted Zolciak’s oldest daughters in 2013.
Last summer, Zolciak announced that she was expecting twins. The reality star gave birth to daughter, Kaia Rose, and son, Kane Ren, in Atlanta in November.
“Don’t Be Tardy” airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. EDT on Bravo.
