NeNe Leakes is spending the holiday season with her new love.

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum shared snippets of a pre-Christmas date night with her fashion designer boyfriend Nyonisela Sioh on her Instagram Story on Thursday.
“Almost Christmas Eve. Having dinner with….’ Leakes, 54, said in the video before panning the camera to Sioh.
Other clips included the pair enjoying lobster and cocktails and Leakes playfully poking her tongue out.
Their holiday date comes one week after confirming their relationship.
The couple was first spotted together when he accompanied Leakes to her surprise 54th birthday party earlier this month.
This is Leakes’ first relationship since losing her husband Gregg to colon cancer last September. He was 66.
Gregg was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2018, which went into remission after he did six months of chemotherapy. Unfortunately by June, his cancer had returned.
Leakes assured fans that her late husband gave his blessing and wanted her to date and be happy with her life.
“I will love Gregg forever & ever! Grieving is hard! Even harder & depressing alone,” she told The Shade Room. “Gregg and I had a very tearful conversation before his passing. His words to me were ‘be happy, keep smiling and he who finds you has found a good one.’”
Leakes and Gregg got married in 1997, divorced in 2011 and remarried in 2013. They shared one child together, a 22-year-old son named Brentt.
Shortly before his father’s death, Brentt shared an emotional message on Instagram, saying, “Spend time with your loved ones every chance you get. Time is so…valuable dog. I can’t express it. I’m learning the hard way watching my dad fight every day. Please go create memories with ya people.”
Leakes also has a son, Bryson, 31, with former boyfriend Calvin Bryant, whom Leakes helped raise.
We wonder how he feels about that young man NeNe’s been rolling around with.
