Nene Leakes is spending a new year with an old love.

Nene got engaged to ex-husband Gregg Leakes just after the clock struck midnight on 2013, she revealed to Jimmy Fallon. Fallon pressed the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star about her new relationship with her ex when she appeared on his talk show Thursday.

"Well…a little after midnight," Nene said. "I was asked this beautiful question: Will you marry me—again?" And she said yes!

The newly engaged Nene might have tried to play it coy, but she hinted at a romantic reconciliation to fans in a series of tweets on New Year's Eve. Rose petals, champagne and a cryptic "My answer was" led fans to believe the two were back together.

Nene and Gregg, who met in 1996, got divorced in 2011 after 13 years of marriage. Around the time of the split, Gregg claimed he had invested $300,000 in Nene only for the relationship to fail.

In November, Nene kept hush on the mended relationship. "I'm single and not looking," she told Us Weekly. "Love is a beautiful thing and marriage is a beautiful thing. People will enjoy watching Gregg try to woo me back [during season 5]."

The most recent season of the Bravo show premiered in November. One of Nene's castmates was thrilled to finally be able to talk about the engaged couple. "Now I can officially congratulate my girl @NeNeLeakes & Greg on their engagement[.] Love u guys," Cynthia Bailey tweeted on Thursday.
