Here we go again.

Another athlete has married a celebrity, this time it’s Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann and The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak.

The coupled tied the knot on Friday according to Life and Style magazine and Zolciak couldn’t be more ecstatic:

This has been the happiest day of my life. It’s been perfect. It’s been a dream come true.

The couple met at a charity function back in 2010, and welcomed Kroy Jr. into the world back in May.

Fun fact about when they met: The Bravo cameras were filming Zolciak.

Yes that’s right, from Day 1 this has been an extremely public relationship. Does it remind you of another celebrity-athlete couple?

I’m not rooting for a divorce after two months, but the comparisons are frightening. Kim and Kim.

Both men are from rural parts of America and Biermann, like Humphries, isn’t a big name in his sport. He has a grand total of 17 tackles in the Falcons' first eight games. Only hardcore Falcons fans know much about the guy.

Now he’s entering a whole different demographic. He is now famous for his wife. He now has more female fans than male fans. I think it’s safe to say the vast majority of his 28,000 Twitter followers don’t care if the Falcons can beat the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Bravo is already filming a show centered on the couple's marriage and what life is like for the newly weds. Sound familiar?

Let’s hope Biermann knows what he’s getting himself into. Let’s hope he’s prepared for cameramen and producers invading every part of his personal space. Let’s hope he’s ready for having zero privacy.

It didn’t work for Humphries, a country boy from Minnesota. Do you think it will work for a Montana native that grew up in the middle of nowhere?

The odds are not in his favor.
