Brielle Biermann, 23, posted pics of Kroy’s 35th birthday dinner earlier this week, snapped at a steakhouse restaurant. In one shot, Brielle is sitting on Kroy’s lap, with her father’s arm around her. The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum posed behind the duo in another snap. “HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the most amazing father & man I’ll ever know,” Brielle captioned the post. “I couldn’t imagine a life without your hardworking, selfless, loving, caring self! “I’m so proud of you and all you’ve accomplished we had too much fun last night i forgot to post yesterday. Love love you dad!”
Brielle Biermann was hit by fan criticism soon after she posted the photos.
“Honey No sitting in stepdaddys lap, Don’t you know better?” one follower commented.
“Why you sitting on your momma husband lap?” another asked.
Brielle Biermann took notice and responded to the backlash.
“Honestly because I had no where else to sit,” Brielle wrote. “We were making jokes the whole time about him being Santa it was comedy.”
“Takes a very special man to adopt children & take them in as their own,” one follower shared.
“You & your sister… your whole FAMILY, is so fortunate to have Kroy! What a wonderful human!” another wrote.
“As a mother of two girls about to marry an amazing man who loves me and my daughters, I absolutely LOVE and RESPECT the relationship you have with Kroy,” another fan gushed.
Kroy Biermann filed to adopt Kim Zolciak’s daughters in March 2013. The adoptions were finalized in July of that year, and the girls legally changed their last names to Biermann. Kim and Kroy went on to have four children together, Kroy Jr, 9, Kash, 8, and six-year-old twins, Kaia and Kane.
