Jeannie Mai Jenkins is expecting her first child!
The star, 42, is pregnant, expecting her first baby with musician husband Jeezy (born Jay Wayne Jenkins), she revealed on The Real talk show Monday, and in an interview with Women’s Health. Jeezy is already dad to two children.
“I can definitely say that our Real fam is growing, and it’s been really hard to keep all of these secrets for you guys because we’ve had so much to reveal here at the show, including the fact that I am pregnant!” the co-host said during the broadcast.
Mai Jenkins told Women’s Health, “Jeezy and I have been kind of saving this and hiding this for five months. So we’re relieved to finally share the news.”
She also revealed that this news comes after a pregnancy loss: Mai Jenkins found out she was pregnant a month before her wedding to Jeezy, which was in March, and then suffered a miscarriage. They’d been trying for a baby since last year.
“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,” she shared, adding, “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.”
