NeNe Leakes Introduces Her Secret Granddaughter to the World


Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is a grandma!

In the newest issue of In Touch the outspoken diva reveals that her 22-year-old son Bryson was secretly expecting a baby.

“I only found out about everything because I ran into Ashley when she was more than six months along,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star tells In Touch in an exclusive interview. “I said, ‘You look pregnant.’ And she said, ‘Hasn’t Bryson told you?’ But he hadn’t because he knew that I wouldn’t approve of him having a child so young.”

Why wasn’t her son ringing the alarm on the pregnancy? “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,” stated NeNe.

Now that her granddaughter Bri’asia Bryant has arrived, Nene is happier than ever and doesn’t see being a grandparent as a negative thing. “Forty is the new 30. I’m a sassy, fashion-forward grandma!” she boasts.

Congrats to NeNe for keeping the news under wraps and for the new addition to her family!
