Not only we were surprised to find out that NeNe Leakes is a grandmother now. She, herself, was surprised as well, because she had no idea she would become a grandmother until she bumped into her son’s pregnant girlfriend. But now she can’t get enough of her little granddaughter.
Check out what she had to say in an interview with InTouch.
On finding out about her son’s expecting a baby:
“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.”
On liking being called grandma:
“Forty is the new 30. I’m a sassy, fashion-forward grandma!”
On adoring her granddaughter:
“I always wanted to have a girl 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..little dresses, sparkly headbands, and Gucci shoes … We just love her.”
