There’s a fifth co-host of “The Real” on the way! Jeannie Mai, 42, revealed during Monday’s episode of the daytime talk show that she and her husband, rapper Jeezy, 43, are expecting their first child together.
I can definitely say that our real fam is growing,” Mai told her co-hosts, Garcelle Beauvais, Loni Love and Adrienne Houghton. It’s been really hard to keep all of these secrets from you guys because we’ve had so much to reveal here at the show, including the fact that I am pregnant.
While debuting her baby bump, Mai recalled the years in which she didn’t plan on becoming a mother. However, she said things changed when she met Jeezy.
It feels surreal,” Mai said. “I do know that you never say never, and that love can really change you and I’m so thankful to be on a show that’s really helped me to grow and to evolve and to see myself differently than I would have ever imagined seeing myself. Mai, 42, and Jeezy, 43, have been married since March. The rapper has three children from former relationships: Jadarius, Shyheim, and Amra.
Mai told the magazine it “was not easy” to conceive, sharing that she discovered she was pregnant a month before the wedding, then had a miscarriage.
“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 said, adding that Jeezy made her “see life differently for myself. Our love is honest, pure and safe something I hadn’t felt as a child,” she confided.
