Jeannie Mai Jenkins is pregnant!
“The Real” co-host has officially announced she is expecting her first child with her husband, Jeezy.
Jeannie Mai announced the exciting news on Monday’s show.
Watch the announcement below:
The clock was ticking on the announcement especially after Tamar Braxton publicly called it and Jeannie Mai’s strategic positioning in photos was sort of a dead giveaway.
The mommy-to-be told Women’s Health she and Jeezy are “relieved” to finally share the news.
Jeezy and I have been kind of saving this and hiding this for five months.
She also opened up about her and Jeezy’s struggle to conceive.
“It was not easy,” she said.
The couple underwent IVF to help them get pregnant.
We both needed a bit of assistance, especially with me being 41 at the time.
Just before tying the knot in March, Jeannie discovered she was pregnant.
Soon after she suffered a miscarriage and wondered if she was being punished because up until last year, she never wanted children.
I wondered if I was being punished. I wondered if I’d jinxed myself or cursed myself. My entire life, I never wanted children.
When I say never, I’m talking a hard-stop never.
Jeannie even got a tattoo on her stomach to symbolize it.
But, then she had a change of heart after suffering a miscarriage.
Falling in love with Jeezy made me see life differently for myself. Our love is honest, pure, and safe…something I hadn’t felt as a child.
A week after her wedding, at an IVF appointment, the couple learned they were pregnant again.
It was the most beautiful sign that anything’s possible, that you’re not in control, and God has a plan.
Congratulations to the Mr. and Mrs. Jenkins on their forthcoming bundle of joy!
