Rumors about Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes’s son Bryson expecting a baby were true.
Bryson, 22, and his girlfriend Ashley Hill, 21, welcomed a baby girl in June. The couple named their bundle of joy Bri’asia Bryant. Although Leakes is happy with the new addition, she admits she was shocked when she found out her son was having a child.
“I only found out about everything because I ran into Ashley when she was more than six months along,” Leakes told In Touch. “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.”
Leakes was uncomfortable with being called ‘Grandma’ at first but the 44-year old has now embraced the name. “Forty is the new 30. I’m a sassy, fashion-forward grandma!,” Leakes said.
The New Normal star admits that she always wanted a girl, so she’s happy that Bri’asia is a part of the family. She said she made sure Hill had everything she needed during her pregnancy.
“I paid for everything in the nursery: the clothing, the diapers. “I don’t want her to feel strapped,” she said. “She’s gone completely “crazy” buying gifts for the baby, including “little dresses, sparkly headbands, and Gucci shoes … We just love her.”
