Jeannie Mai gave fans what they were waiting for on her YouTube channel, Hello Hunnay with Jeannie Mai, on Thursday (Jun. 9). The former talk show host brought her daughter, Monaco Jenkins, on a live broadcast for the first time.
More than 200,000 fans joined Jeannie and Monaco for the session. “Monaco and I wanted to jump on our Live today because we were blown away by the support of her first video,” Jeannie Mai said in reference to why she decided to go live on YouTube with her daughter. “I poured my heart out with you guys, and I’ve never held anything back,” the television personality continued. “But I have to say, that was the most touching video I’ve ever had such responses to,” Jeannie Mai said during her latest session with Monaco.
“I was just moved by people who cared so much about Monaco and her well-being, and her just being here,” Jeannie shared of the compassionate response she received. “So we wanted to say from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.”
Nearly two million social media fans took to YouTube in celebration of Jeannie Mai and Jeezy’s decision to share their daughter with the world. Jeannie introduced her daughter via a pre-recorded video that went viral. Olivia TuTram Mai, Jeannie’s mom, was also featured in the video and sang to her granddaughter during the segment.
“I smiled when Mommy started singing to Coco but when Mamma Mai started singing I fell out,” one YouTube fan said of the beautiful moment when Olivia sang to Monaco. “Priceless to see three generations,” the supporter added.
Another of Jeannie Mai’s fans said, “[Monaco] is seriously your ‘mini-me,’ Jeannie! She does have moments of looking like her daddy too, but this is so special seeing three generations together with you, Mama Mai, and Monaco. I can’t wait to continue watching you on your mommy journey!”
Monaco is Jeannie Mai and Jeezy’s first child.
