Well for once the rumors were true! Last year it was reported that NeNe Leakes‘ son Bryson Bryant (the one always finding himself in jail) was expecting a baby with his girlfriend Ashley. And today the Real Housewives of Atlanta star confirms that she is indeed a grandma!
NeNe tells In Touch Weekly that Bryson kept it a secret from her for months and that’s why she denied reports that he had fathered a child.
“I only found out about everything because I ran into Ashley when she was more than six months along,” NeNe insists. “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.”

“I didn’t feel like he was ready for such a big responsibility,” she adds. “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 tender age of 44, however now she embraces it! “Forty is the new 30. I’m a sassy, fashion-forward grandma!”
Bryson and Ashley welcomed their daughter Bri’asia Bryant to the world this June and NeNe is over-joyed. “I always wanted to have a girl,” she 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, NeNe is very, very, very rich in case you forgot!
I wonder what NeNe’s maybe ex-husband, sometimes boyfriend Gregg Leakes thinks!
Well, congratulations NeNe, Bryson, and Gregg on the new addition to their family! Hopefully we will be seeing Bri’asia on this season’s RHOA. And hopefully we will also be seeing Bryson get his act together!
