NeNe Leakes' husband, Gregg Leakes, is staying strong during his cancer battle — with a little help from his friends. Some of The Real Housewives of Atlanta performer's closest pals came out to support her and her husband during this difficult time on Sunday.
NeNe hosted a special gathering on Father's Day in celebration of Gregg. "This Father’s Day will probably be one of the most memorable ones we’ve ever had together!" NeNe gushed on Instagram in a post that featured a lovely photo of her and Gregg. "We are usually doing something all fancy but today we chose to just enjoy each other, have some company over and take tons of pics right here in the kitchen no really, I love you more today than ever Gregg. Happy Father’s Day hunni."
Some of the company the RHOA couple welcomed to Casa Leakes on Sunday included Cynthia Bailey and Eva Marcille and they both came bearing "goodies" as they paid Gregg a visit. Eva confirmed that NeNe and Gregg were "all smiles" when she stopped by to see the couple. "Woke up grateful to see @greggleakes smiling & full of love & positivity," Cynthia shared on Instagram. "I came over to put a smile on your face, and it was you that ended up putting a big one on mine. Love always."
Both NeNe and Gregg seemed to be in good spirits as they posed for some pretty pics during the celebration. "[You're] gonna be just fine hunni!" NeNe shared on Instagram.
NeNe shared the news last week that Gregg had been diagnosed with cancer. "Our New Normal and the fight begins," NeNe captioned a photo of Gregg at the MD Anderson Cancer Center on June 13.
NeNe later confirmed on Instagram that the cancer had been removed and the couple was deciding whether or not Gregg should undergo chemotherapy. In the same post, she thanked all of her fans and friends who have shown their support to Gregg amid his cancer battle. "We have been so overwhelmed with the outpouring of love, support, thoughtfulness & prayers," NeNe shared on Instagram. "So far, Gregg is doing great! He feels good with the exception of not being able to eat a lot."
NeNe previously opened up to The Daily Dish about how Gregg was doing following some issues with his heart last season of RHOA, which you can view, below.
