The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in the Biermann family, and it looks like Brielle is on her way to being a WAG, just like her momma Kim. (WAG stands for “Wives and Girlfriends of Professional Athletes for those who didn’t know!)
Brielle is currently dating a Red Sox minor league pitcher named Michael Kopech, and he’s officially gotten the seal of approval from her step-dad Kroy Biermann.
“He’s definitely a very hard worker, so I really haven’t had a whole lot of opportunity to sit down with him or hang out with him or be around him, because he’s been playing a lot. From what I have been around, he’s a very nice young man,” Kroy revealed to The Daily Dish.
Continuing, “Good head on his shoulders, dedicated to the opportunities that he has, understands where he’s at in his life and is doing it the right way. That’s really good to see. I think it’s good for Brielle to see another person her age that is having success and how they’re going about it. I think that’s helping her. It’s hard to relate to a parent or somebody that you don’t really know. But if you’re right next to an individual who’s doing it right there in front of you, you could kind of incorporate what they’re doing into your own life. I think they’ve been very good influences on each other so far. It’s been pretty neat to see her be excited about him.”
Kroy also admitted that the best way to advise Brielle on her dating life is to treat Kim like a queen, so she understands what it’s like to really be in love! (Side note: I did a project on this topic in college, and he is absolutely 100% right; I love Kroy!) “I don’t know that I can tell you anything specific that I’ve offered her. She’ll ask me questions and I’ll obviously give her my best opinion or advice. I think, more than that, is lead by example. That’s kind of always an approach I’ve taken on life, so if your child sees you treat their mom or your wife, like my wife Kim, the right way or ‘this is how we do it,’ that speaks way more volume than just somebody talking. You can’t implement it yourself and tell somebody to do it, which makes them do it the opposite way. It doesn’t make any sense. Leading by example, I think, is a much better way to communicate with your children than talking at them,” Kroy explained. Adding, “Sometimes they don’t listen anyway. They think you’re wrong or right, but if they see you do it, they can process it on their own time and it typically makes a better outcome.”
Kroy has been one of Brielle’s toughest critics, and it’s a good thing for her; Kim seems to think her daughter is perfect, and Kroy brings her back to reality that she is not! However, it looks like Mike has been a great influence on her, and we will see a new, mature Brielle moving forward; let’s hope Kroy’s right! “I’m excited for Brielle. I think she has a lot of opportunities. I’m excited for where she’s headed as well. I think she’s starting to put a good amount of effort into where she wants to go and what she wants to do. I think anything is in Brielle’s future once she nails down where she wants to kind of be and go. I think it’s all going to open up for her. I think she’s heading in that direction at a very good pace. I think she’s just got to figure out some stuff for herself,” he wrapped.
I’ve been one of Brielle’s toughest critics, I just don’t understand how she does nothing all day and gets paid for adding pictures to Instagram; get off the couch and start working Brielle! Her and Mike look adorable together, and while I don’t get what exactly attracts Kroy to Kim, I like and respect him a lot; I’m going to take his word for it and be on the lookout for a better Brielle!
Check out some of her and Mike’s pictures below, he seems to love her just as much as she loves him!
