Love is in the air for the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” diva Nene Leakes and her husband, Gregg Leakes. 

The tumultuous couple’s marriage made it to 2020 as the two celebrated New Year’s Day, on Wednesday, Jan. 1, with family.

“HAPPY NEW YEAR,” Leakes wrote for their caption before hashtagging “#theleakes #familyforlife #2020goals.”

Dazzling with their “Happy New Year” hats, the couple had fans swooning in Leakes’ comments.

“Heyyyyyy, you all look Marvelous!! 🔥🔥 Come on 2020. Let’s do this!!”

“Beautiful couple! Nene is very classy.”

“Happy New Year to this pair I love so much, please stay together. May God bless you more abundantly ❤️.”

“Guuurrrrrllll you are & always be my favorite Housewife! Happy New Year to you & your walking miracle of a husband!!!!!”

“One solid relationship, regardless of all trials and tribulations this is forever relationship.”


Leakes has been there for husband Gregg throughout their on-again, off-again marriage. The couple wed in 1997 and divorced in 2011, but soon remarried in 2013 in a ceremony that was televised on “RHOA.” 

Later in the Bravo series, fans watched as Leakes took care of the 63-year-old real estate investor as he fought stage 3 colon cancer. 

Gregg was diagnosed with colon cancer on May 5, 2018, but after several months he underwent successful surgery and has been cancer-free since May 2019.  

However, while Gregg was battling cancer, Leakes mentioned that her husband was being “mean, grouchy, and evil” in a Twitter post. Gregg later apologized to his wife in an Instagram post on Jan.14, 2019. 

On June 16, 2019, Leakes took to Instagram to wish her husband a healthy “Happy Father’s Day.” 

“Happy Healthy Father’s Day, Gregg! It’s all about you today. You are blessed! We love you @greggleakes,” Leakes’ photo caption read of Gregg looking dashing in a navy blue and black suit. 

Fans flooded the comments to wish Gregg “Happy Father’s Day” and complimented him on looking healthy. 

“So glad he and you are doing well. Love you guys. 👑👑🙏🏾💖.”

“He is looking so healthy. This makes me happy! I love you both as a couple.”

“Looking good, Gregg🤗 Happy to seeing you look so healthy. Having a strong woman at your side will do that. Nene loves you ❤️.” 

“Gregg looks very good. So glad to see him in good spirits.”

“He’s never looked better‼️ and you, my dear… I love how you are there for your husband. I just love you! Congratulations Who are your success 🥂.” 

“You look great 👍🏾.” 

On May 9, 2019, Leakes received an honor from the Associates for Breast and Prostate Cancer Studies for her role as caretaker of Gregg while he battled cancer.

While some fans felt she didn’t deserve the honor, apparently the ABC’s and Gregg believed so.
