'Real Housewives of
Atlanta' Star NeNe
Leakes Engaged to Ex
Husband Gregg Leakes
Talk about the new normal! NeNe Leakes is engaged—yet again— to her ex-husband!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star confirmed on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night, Jan. 3, that she's giving marriage another shot with her ex-husband Gregg Leakes.
On New Year’s Eve, NeNe tweeted a series of romantic photos, which Jimmy held up while interviewing her.
“So, are you engaged? Can you say anything?” the host asked, to which The New Normal star replied, “Well, a little after midnight, I was asked this beautiful question: ‘Will you marry me – again?’” – and as you can imagine, her answer was yes!
After sharing the photos with her 964,000 followers on Dec. 31, NeNe cryptically tweeted “My answer was” and “Yes.”
In December, In Touch chatted with the 45-year-old, who had nothing but sweet things to say about Gregg.
“I never really wanted to divorce him. We just go everyday, one day at a time,” she told In Touch, adding, “There was a time where we weren’t friends, thank God that’s over. I really feel we’re soul mates.”
The pair, who met in 1996, divorced in 2011 after 13 years of marriage. They share one son, Brentt, 13. NeNe also has son, Bryson, from a previous relationship.
It’s been no secret that Gregg has been trying to woo his ex back.
In the first episode of the current season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe said, “We always had a great relationship, and it was very difficult during the time that we weren’t together. So I’m open to it. But Gregg’s got to prove himself.”
And Gregg felt the same way. “Fifteen years… We can’t just toss it. We still care about each other.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
