NeNe Leakes recently broke the news that her husband of 24 years, Gregg Leakes, is “transitioning to the other side” – he was diagnosed with Stage III colon cancer in 2018, and it flared up earlier this year. Who are Gregg Leakes’ children, and how many does he share with wife NeNe?

Who are Gregg Leakes’ children?

Gregg Leakes married Linnethia Monique “NeNe” Leakes – formerly Johnson – in 1997. 

Gregg brought five children of his own to his marriage with NeNe. They are four sons and one daughter: Daryl, Damian, Dexter, Denton and Katrina.

He and NeNe have one child together, Brentt Leakes, born 1999. Bryson Bryant is NeNe’s son from a previous relationship.

Several of the above have spent time in the public eye, much like their parents. For example, All About The Tea wrote last year about Bryson’s relationship drama, while Brentt appeared in RHOA on and off for 11 years.

His other children – Daryl, Damian, Katrina, Dexter and Denton – were born 1976, 1977, 1982, 1985 and 1990 respectively. That makes them, at time of writing, 44, 43, 38, 36 and 31.

Born in December 1989, NeNe’s son Bryson will turn 32 later this year. For his 30th birthday, NeNe gifted him a house.

How many times have they been married?

Gregg and NeNe Leakes married for the first time in 1997. They filed for divorce in 2011 after 14 years together, but began to see each other again the following year.

“Well… A little after midnight,” Nene told Jimmy Fallon in 2013, “I was asked this beautiful question: Will you marry me—again?” She said yes.

Much of their relationship has played out in the public eye, owing to NeNe’s involvement with Real Housewives of Atlanta since 2008.
