Jeannie Mai and Jeezy are expecting their first child together! Jeannie Mai shared her and Jeezy’s excitement about starting a family with Women’s Health.
“Jeezy and I have been kind of saving this and hiding this for five months,” Jeannie revealed. “So, we’re relieved to finally share the news,” the celebrity said.
Fans speculated that Jeannie Mai was pregnant a few days ago after The Real co-host shared a candid of herself that showed her baby bump. Tamar Braxton declared Jeannie was expecting, which led some fans to criticize Braxton for ousting the couple in the event that Jeannie and Jeezy were indeed preparing for baby number one. Others felt the possibility of Jeannie being pregnant was low seeing as how the television personality’s first marriage ended because she did not want to have children.
“My entire life, I never wanted children. When I say never, I’m talking a hard-stop never,” Jeannie Mai explained to Women’s Health. “Falling in love with Jeezy made me see life differently for myself,” the celebrity continued. “Our love is honest, pure, and safe … something I hadn’t felt as a child.”
This will be Jeannie Mai’s first child and Jeezy’s third. The Real co-host has relied on her spouse to help calm her anxieties about parenthood.
“Being a mom is hands down the hardest role in the entire world,” Jeannie shared with the press. “Now that we’re bringing another Jenkins into the picture, I have no idea what to expect,” the celebrity admitted. “[My husband is] an amazing dad,” Jeannie told Women’s Health. “[Knowing this] overwhelms me with even more love.”
Of course, Jeannie Mai plans to ask the devoted fans of The Real for advice on parenting as well. “[They’re] going to be really helpful in telling me tried, true, and tested stories that will help me relate.”
