Before Kim Zolciak announced to the whole world that she was expecting a baby with NFL boyfriend Kroy Biermann, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star first let two of her co-stars in on the growing secret.

"I told Kandi (Burruss) right around the time I found out," Ms. Z. tells People. "Of course, she's great and excited for me. Sheree (Whitfield) has known for a long time, too. She's cute. She'll send me text messages [like], 'I hope you're not overdoing it' and 'Do you need anything?'"

NeNe, on the other hand...

"I have not spoken to NeNe (Leakes) or Cynthia (Bailey)," Kim says. "Phaedra (Parks) was really sweet when she found out about it in the press."

The wig guru, now in her second trimester, says she's feeling better as the pregnancy progresses. "It's just getting through the first few months that are really rough. I do feel awesome now. I have a little bit more energy."

That's good news because Kim already has her hands full as mom to Brielle and Ariana. While her oldest daughter turns 14 soon and is more interested in her friends than helping with dirty diapers, the "Ring Didn't Mean a Thing" singer predicts Ariana will eager to help when the baby arrives.

"Ariana is super excited, but she's got that mother hen personality. She takes care of the dog and she's very nurturing."
