“I’m going to have my baby with Justin Bartha," NeNe joked with Celebuzz at Bravo's Upfront in New York City. "I love Justin... dearly. I mean, I miss him more than I miss anybody on the set. He’s so funny, he’s such a great guy. And we’re going to have a baby together."
NeNe and Justin, who co-star on the hit NBC comedy The New Normal clearly have a mutual love, because Justin recently joked that he’s down for a little child rearing.
"NeNe Leakes is perfection on 8-inch heels," he told USA Today. "She is my beautiful, black soul sister, soul mate, and we will make a baby one day and name it Crissy."
But according to NeNe, the duo was not BFFs at first sight.
"It’s so interesting [because] when we first met each other on set I didn’t feel a connection right away," she told Celebuzz. "And I guess Justin is like me — we had to watch each other and figure out, ‘Does this work? Does this work?’ [But now] I love him."
Luckily, NeNe’s No. 1 man, Gregg Leakes, has no problem with the duo being BFFs.
"Gregg is fine with it," Leakes said.
