Newlyweds Jeezy & Jeannie Mai are PREGNANT! Here's Everything She Shared About Expecting After Previously Saying She Never Wanted Kids

​ ​ ​ ​

Baby on board! Rapper Jeezy and his wife Jeannie Mai are PREGNANT! She revealed her growing baby bump on the season premiere of "The Real" fresh off her honeymoon with her man. See the maternity shots, her pregnancy announcement, and get the deets on her changing her mind about motherhood inside...

Well, here's a surprise!

Grammy winning artist Jeezy and EMMY award winning TV host Jeannie Mai are EXPECTING! Yep, they're pregnant five months after tying the knot. It's Jeannie's first baby and Jeezy's third.

Despite previously saying she didn’t want children, the 42-year-old "The Real" co-host had a change of heart after falling madly in love with Jeezy.

"Jeezy and I have been kind of saving this and hiding this for five months," she told Women’s Health. "So, we’re relieved to finally share the news."

In the past, Jeannie was adamant that she never wanted to have children. After 10 years of marriage, Jeannie and Freddy Harteis called it quits and got a divorce. She revealed the fact she didn't want kids was a major factor in their divorce. Freddy then went on to start a relationship and get pregnant with someone else months later.

Jeannie and Jeezy confirmed the dating rumors in August 2019 and he popped the question in April 2020. About a year ago, Jeannie and Jeezy decided they wanted to start a family together, but they struggled to conceive. So, they decided to try in-vitro fertilization (IVF). Just a month before they tied the knot in March 2021, she suffered a miscarriage.

"It was not easy," the former Dancing with the Stars contestant shared. "We both needed a bit of assistance, especially with me being 41 at the time."

After the miscarriage, she started having thoughts that she was being punished for previously saying she never wanted to be a mother.

"I wondered if I was being punished. I wondered if I’d jinxed myself or cursed myself," she shared. "My entire life, I never wanted children. When I say never, I’m talking a hard-stop never. 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," she said.

 

A week after their wedding ceremony, Jeannie was pregnant again.

"It was the most beautiful sign that anything’s possible, that you’re not in control, and God has a plan," she said.

 

 

Being in this safe space with Jeezy allowed her to feel like she could be a good mother to a child and raise their child in a happy environment. She reflected on how her parents raised her and how they had difficulty handling her trauma as a sexual assault survivor:

"It still affects me to this day as an adult. So now, when I think about my child, the one thing I can tell you is how much I plan to protect this child," said Jeannie. "I’ve got that down on lock. Being a mom is hands down the hardest role in the entire world. Now that we’re bringing another Jenkins into the picture. I have no idea what to expect."

A new season of "The Real" premieres today and Jeannie kicked things off by telling her co-hosts she's with child. Watch it below:

Former "The Real" co-host Tamar Braxton almost ruined the pregnancy surprise by posting a comment on Jeannie's IG about her possibly being pregnant during New York Fashion Week last week:

Oh Tay Tay!

Back in July, a mini baby bump was pretty visible at her Jeannie Mai x Owls Brew Boozy Tea Party in L.A. when she posed it up with Jordin Sparks and husband Dana Isaiah:

Hmph.

Congrats to the couple!
