NeNe Leakes gives a positive update on son Brentt’s health as she shares he’s walking and talking again

NeNe Leakes took to Instagram on Wednesday night to share a health update about her son Brentt Leakes, two months after he suffered from congestive heart failure and a stroke.

The 54-year-old Real Housewives Of Atlanta alum shared videos of the 23-year-old exiting a rehabilitation facility fully recovered.

She wrote: “God be the glory. He walks and talks.’

Leakes, who Brentt shared with late husband Gregg Leakes, posted before and after photos of their second-born child’s journey of recovery.

She started the series of posts with a statement that read: “Mine [son’s] life changed on September 26th.”

Wearing a pink tracksuit with black and white sneakers, Brentt looked slightly embarrassed as his mother encouraged him as he rounded a corner at a hospital.

He wore a black hat over his braided hair as on-site staff excitedly cheered him on after a two-month stint in physical therapy.

NeNe expressed her gratitude to the medical professionals who took care of her beloved son during his recovery.

Standing alongside his caretakers, Brentt emphasized, “Nurses are the best,” adding a red heart emoji.

The young adult posed with a group of women while holding a certificate confirming he had completed rehabilitation.

In a throwback picture taken shortly after his health complications, the reality TV star wrote, “Nothing but God.”

In another slide, the Linnethia Lounge founder noted that her son was “home just in time for the holidays.”

NeNe confirmed her son’s health issues on her Instagram Stories two weeks after the incident.

In the Post, she revealed that Brentt had shown improvement since the ordeal began but was “struggling” with his speech.

She added that it is not known what caused his health to deteriorate in the first place.

“Two weeks ago today, Brentt had heart failure and a stroke. He’s only 23 so he’s really young to have this happen to him,” NeNe said in a video captured in her car.

“The first thing a lot of doctors think of when someone that age comes to us with a condition like this is that they might have been on drugs or they might have a serious infection, maybe HIV,” NeNe said.

“Brentt doesn’t drink or do drugs…they also tested him for HIV. They thought maybe he had gotten COVID and he didn’t know he had COVID. You’ve seen things like this happen when you’ve caught the Delta variant. He never knew he had COVID. I never knew he had COVID. So they ran a series of tests on him to see what might have caused this to happen to him,” she explained.

“We’re still trying to figure it out because if we knew the cause, obviously they could treat the cause. It was very scary. I don’t even want to go into detail about what happened… how I found out and what condition he was in. Obviously, a stroke is a very serious matter. He has trouble speaking. I do not know. All I know is that…keep us in your prayers,” the star added.

“Brentt FaceTimed me this morning. He’s in good spirits. We’re just… shocked. Just shocked….All of this is so new to me. We’re not revealing where Brentt is right now.

“Maybe Brentt was born with some disease… something with his heart since he was a kid. And it just never showed up until now. We do not know it. That’s a lot for us right now. Everything is still very new. I’ve been asked a million questions… could his weight have been the problem? The doctors said they didn’t believe it.’

“He’s shown some improvement. We are really happy and blessed for that.”

“Brentt was very stressed in the month of September because it was the one year anniversary of his father’s death. He was very close to his father and was very stressed about it. I don’t even know if that has anything to do with it. I’ve asked the doctors questions like this and they seem to think that Brentt isn’t.

Insiders told TMZ that Leakes suffered the medical emergency in Atlanta and was quickly rushed to a hospital for treatment.
