Atlanta "Housewife" and "The New Normal" star NeNe Leakes kicked of 2013 by getting engaged to an old flame: her ex-husband.

Leakes had been dropping hints of a possible New Year's Eve engagement by tweeting romantic photos of herself and ex-husband Gregg Leakes, and on Thursday's episode of "Late Night," host Jimmy Fallon intended to set the record straight.

"You start tweeting out these photos," Jimmy said, holding up the series of images Leakes tweeted on New Year's Eve. "So, are you engaged?"

The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star's photos included shots of a hallway strewn with rose petals, and a nightcap of strawberries and chilled champagne.

After some gentle prodding from Fallon, Leakes put the engagement musings to rest.

"Well, a little after midnight, I was asked this beautiful question: 'Will you marry me - again?'" Leakes said coyly.

Her answer?

An exuberant "Yes!"
