Ending months of speculation, NeNe Leakes has confirmed she's officially patched things up with ex-husband Gregg Leakes.

A little after midnight on New Year's Eve, "I was asked this beautiful question: will you marry me -- again?" the star of Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta and NBC's The New Normal said Thursday on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

Her response? "YES!"

The 44-year-old had dropped hints of a reconciliation on Twitter, posting NYE photos of a rose petal-strewn hallway and a table decked out with strawberries and champagne.

The two divorced in 2011 following 13 years of marriage and a son, Brentt, who's 13. (Among other things, Gregg Leakes complained in a conversation secretly recorded by a radio host that fame had gone to his wife's head.)

But on the latest season of Real Housewives, they are shown cuddling and clinking wine glasses on a cast vacation in Anguilla, looking seemingly happy and in love.

The reunited Leakes's will appear together on Monday's installment of The Wendy Williams Show, NeNe Leakes tweeted Friday.
