The Glee star, who found fame on U.S. reality show The Real Housewives of Atlanta, sparked speculation about a reconciliation with her former partner Gregg by sharing pictures of their romantic New Year's Eve (31Dec12) celebrations on Twitter.com.

She followed the snaps up by declaring, "My answer was Yes".

Leakes has now confirmed she is planning to marry Gregg again, and she opened up about the proposal during an appearance on Jimmy Fallon's U.S. talk show on Thursday night (03Jan13).

Fallon asked, "You start tweeting out these photos. So, are you engaged?" Leakes explained, "Well, a little after midnight, I was asked this beautiful question 'Will you marry me - again?' He went for it".

The couple wed in 1996 but divorced in 2011 after 13 years of marriage.

They share a son, Brentt, 13, and Leakes is also mother to another son, Bryson, from a previous relationship.
