Jeannie Mai is expecting her first child.
Despite earlier stating that she did not want children, the “The Real” co-host revealed on Monday that she is expecting her and husband Jeezy’s first child together.
“It’s strange since here is the same house where I made so many bold statements. I was like, ‘I know exactly what I want, I know exactly what sort of lady I want to be,’ and I always thought, ‘I’d never be a mother,'” Mai stated on the talk program.
“And there are so many reasons now that are coming to light as to why I would have said that back then, but I do know that you never say never, and that love can really transform you.”
Mai, 42, praised the chat show for assisting her in “growing and evolving” into a position she “never dreamed of seeing” for herself. She claimed she couldn’t wait to “return home and inform the ladies who have always embraced me at every stage of my life,” as she told Jeezy.
“…I feel like you’ve all told me that if I wanted to be a parent, I’d be an amazing mom,” she said.
On March 27, the 43-year-old rapper and Mai married in a private ceremony at their home in Atlanta. The talk show presenter found out she was pregnant a month before their wedding, but she miscarried.
She told “Women’s Health” that she questioned whether she was being punished. “I worried whether I’d cursed or jinxed myself. I’ve never desired children in my life.
When I say never, I mean never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never,
Due to COVID, the couple’s plans for a large wedding were thwarted, but they eventually chose to exchange vows in front of their closest relatives and a few close friends in an intimate ceremony.
A week after they exchanged vows, Mai found out she was pregnant again.
She told the magazine, “It was the most beautiful sign that anything is possible, that you’re not in control, and God has a plan.”
In 2018, Mai and Jeezy started dating. It’s Mai’s second marriage (she divorce her ex-husband Freddy Harteis in 2017 after ten years of marriage) and Jeezy’s first, as the father of three children.
