Surpise!  Nene Leakes is a first time grandma!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star unveiled her new granddaughter on the cover of In Touch magazine this week! Nene’s son Bryson and his girlfriend Ashley Hill welcomed the adorable little girl, named Bry’asia, 2 months ago.

Nene shared how she first found out she was going to be a grandma (or Glam Ma as she calls it!), “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.”

The actress and reality star is sparing no expense when it comes to her grandchild. “I paid for everything in the nursery: the clothing, the diapers. I don’t want her to feel strapped”. She says she’s been splurging on “little dresses, sparkly headbands, and Gucci shoes … We just love her.”

Nene isn’t worried a big at being a grandmother at just 44 years old: “Forty is the new 30. I’m a sassy, fashion-forward grandma!”

Congrats to the family! Little Bri’asia is a doll!
