NeNe Leakes gives health update on son Brentt after stroke

NeNe Leakes shared a happy update on her son Brentt Leakes’ health just in time for the holidays.

The former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, 54, shared on her Instagram Stories on Wednesday that the 23-year-old club owner is learning to walk again after suffering a stroke on Sept. 26.

In one of the clips, Brentt appears dressed in a hot pink track suit, while taking a few steps in the hallway of a hospital.

Nurses and NeNe can be heard cheering from him as he walks around.

“I’m so happy for you,” the proud mom adds. “This is so good.”

She then noted in a text post, “To God be the Glory.”

It appears that Brentt had just been discharged from the hospital as NeNe pointed out that he was “walking out” after being admitted just two months ago.

“Home just in time for The holidays,” the reality star also posted, before adding, “Nurses are the best.”

NeNe also gave a glimpse of what Brentt’s recovery actually looked like by sharing a video of him “learning to walk again” on a treadmill with a contraption that helped keep him up.

In a separate video, he was seen taking steps backwards while again hooked up to a device that helped him walk as he threw a basketball and worked on his hand-eye coordination.

In early October, NeNe confirmed the news that her son had been rushed to the hospital after suffering “congested heart failure and a stroke.”

At the time, she said doctors were still working to find answers as to why Brentt had experienced such health issues at such a young age.

However, the former Bravolebrity said experts had ruled out concerns about his weight.

“Just in time” for the holidays, NeNe said of her son being released from the hospital.

“They were thinking that maybe he had caught COVID and maybe he didn’t know that he had COVID,” NeNe said at the time, noting that doctors allegedly informed her that people who have had the Delta variant of the infection have experienced similar issues.

The “shocked” reality star added at the time, “We are still trying to figure it out, because if we knew the cause then obviously they could treat the cause.”

It is unclear if NeNe has finally learned what brought about Brentt’s condition.
