JEANNIE Mai Jenkins has announced her first pregnancy with her husband Jeezy after “hiding” the news for “five months.”
The Real star and the rapper tied the knot in March of 2021 after a year and a half together.
Jeannie, 42, has announced her first pregnancy after previously suffering from a miscarriage.
The television host spoke to Women’s Health about their process of getting pregnant, after trying for “over a year” and then resorting to IVF due to her age and health complications.
The former makeup artist told the outlet: “Jeezy and I have been kind of saving this and hiding this for five months. So, we’re relieved to finally share the news.”
Jeannie continued: “It was not easy. We both needed a bit of assistance, especially with me being 41 at the time.”
Just one month before the Dancing With The Stars alum said “I do”, the couple found out they were pregnant.
However, shortly after, the performer suffered a devastating miscarriage.
“I wondered if I was being punished,” she recalled, explaining that prior to her new relationship she had never wanted to be a parent.
“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.”
After her miscarriage, she reconsidered her viewpoint on expanding the family as she felt she found a “safe” environment with her now-hubby.
“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 confessed.
