The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, NeNe Leakes is always full of surprises, but who knew she was preparing to become a grandmother! NeNe Leakes recently revealed the birth of her granddaughter, and why it was a secret!
NeNe Leakes is the proud grandmother to Bri’asia Bryant, her son Bryson’s 2-month-old daughter. So, why did NeNe hide it for so long? According to In Touch, Leakes told them: “I only found out about everything because I ran into Ashley when she was more than six months along. 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.”
And we all know that NeNe Leakes had a reason to be concerned: “I didn’t feel like he was ready for such a big responsibility. 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,” she continued.
But despite her initial reaction of not approving of a baby at such a young age, NeNe couldn’t help but melt when she saw the baby, gushing that she has always wanted a girl. And leave it to NeNe to make sure that her princess of a granddaughter is well taken care of so that her son’s girlfriend has no financial struggles. “I paid for everything in the nursery: the clothing, the diapers. I don’t want her to feel strapped,” Leakes gushed to the magazine.
While Grandma may not be a name that NeNe Leakes is used to, or wanted so early in life, she has chosen to embrace it: “Forty is the new 30. I’m a sassy, fashion-forward grandma!”
