NeNe Leakes from The Real Housewives of Atlanta shared today on her twitter that the rumors are in fact true, she is a grandma! Her oldest son Bryson Bryant (who we’ve seen on the show “finding himself” and who NeNe left in jail for several days) and his girlfriend Ashley gave birth, making the housewives star a grandma!
NeNe told In Touch that Bryson hid his girlfriend’s pregnancy from her for a long time, that is why she kept denying reports. “I only found out about everything because I ran into Ashley when she was more than six months along,” NeNe explains. “I said, ‘You look pregnant.’ And she said, ‘Hasn’tBryson told you?’ But he hadn’t because he knew that I wouldn’t approve of him having a child so young.” I didn’t feel like he was ready for such a big responsibility,” she says. “I was his age when I had him, so I know how tough it is. I didn’t want him to make the same mistakes that I did. I needed to let it sink in.” NeNe confesses she wasn’t exactly ready to be called grandma at the age of 44, however now she embraces it! “Forty is the new 30. I’m a sassy, fashion-forward grandma!” BLOOP!
Bryson and Ashley welcomed their daughter Bri’Asia Bryant into this world in June. “I always wanted to have a girl,” NeNe gushes “and now I have one! She’s just adorable.” “I paid for everything in the nursery: the clothing, the diapers. I don’t want her to feel strapped,” NeNe reveals, adding that she’s gone “crazy” spoiling her granddaughter, buying “little dresses, sparkly headbands, and Gucci shoes … We just love her.” Well duh, NeNe is “Rich, Bitch,” we remember!
Congrats to the parents and happy grandmother!
How do you think NeNe will be as a grandmother?
