Meet Nene Leakes’ Granddaughter

Meet Bri’Asia Bryant


Meet Bri’Asia Bryant the first grand-child for Nene Leakes and first child of her son, Brice Bryant. Nene introduced her to the world this morning via In Touch Magazine.

NeNe tells the new issue of In Touch about her shock when she discovered that her 22-year-old son, Bryson, was secretly expecting a baby with his girlfriend, Ashley Hill, 21.

“I only found out about everything because I ran into Ashley when she was more than six months along,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star tells In Touch in an exclusive interview. “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 says. “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.”

However, once little Bri’asia Bryant was born in mid-June, no-nonsense NeNe melted. “I always wanted to have a girl,” she says, “and now I have one! She’s just adorable.”

Not only has NeNe done everything she can to make sure that her son’s girlfriend won’t have to struggle financially — “I paid for everything in the nursery: the clothing, the diapers. I don’t want her to feel strapped,” she says — she’s gone completely “crazy” buying gifts for the baby, including “little dresses, sparkly headbands, and Gucci shoes … We just love her,” NeNe gushes to In Touch.

And while at first she was reserved about being called “Grandma,” the 44-year-old outspoken star now embraces the name! “Forty is the new 30. I’m a sassy, fashion-forward grandma!”

    Yet another reason for NeNe Leakes to act her age and act responsibly.  Oh, that’ right, she doesn’t care about anyone else but herself.

      What a left handed compliment!Looks don’t guarantee happiness in life- look around and observe your own situation.Does that work for all so called ‘pretty people’?

    Nene it’s about time you bring yourself back to reality, your son is a grown damn man, you can’t get him to man up living at home, maybe this baby will do the trick. Just ecause you had a baby at 22yrs of age doesn’t mean he shouldn’t. He didn’t have a problem lying down making this baby, let him deal with the situation and let him grow the f*** up. It’s okay for you to want to buy and brag about what all you did for the baby, but thats the problem, you do every thing for him and enabling him to grow up and be a man. By the way she is adorable, what is she going to call you?

      What’s wrong with her not wantIng her son to make the same mistake she made when she was 22 yrs. old and her buying for her grandchild is what she want to do. I’m pretty sure she is teaching him to be a responsible father to his child. Don’t be so harsh.

    Ne Ne she is a beautiful child. Like all grandparents when they get their first grandchild they are going to spoil them to death. I just hope and pray that when she gets older she realizes that there is more to life than money and material things and she learns the true value of a dollar. Just because you’re buying everything for the baby that should not be a pass for Brice and Ashley. They still need to get a job or go to school ( or both ) and get an education. Again, congrats on the new addition to your family. How does Greg feel about the baby?

    Nene is using this baby for publicity. She is a beauty. Bryson had a son by ashley a little over a year ago. The baby was born a few months early. He passed shortly after he was born. Nene did not give a rat’s ass about it. She didn’t even come to the baby’s funeral.
