Reality star turned actress, NeNe Leakes (real name Linnethia Monique Johnson) has an announcement to make. She’s a proud grandmother! She gave an exclusive interview to In Touch, debuting an adorable photo of her granddaughter, Bri’ Asia. NeNe shares that her son (21-year-old Bryson) didn’t come clean that he and his girlfriend (Ashley) were expecting.
“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. 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.”
And in true NeNe fashion, this little girl is spoiled already.
“I paid for everything in the nursery: the clothing, the diapers. I don’t want her to feel strapped…little dresses, sparkly headbands, and Gucci shoes … We just love her.”
Nene also shared the news on twitter:

Congrats Gramma, we mean Glam Ma, NeNe!
