Jeannie Mai, the wife to Atlanta rapper Jeezy and ‘The Real’ co-host, is expected her first child with her husband.
In a recent statement on the television show, she shared this:
It feels surreal because this is the same home that I said so many defiant things. You know, I was like, I know exactly what I want, I know exactly what kind of woman I want to be, and I always said, I’d never be a mom. And there’s so many reasons now that are coming to fruition as to why I would have said that then, but I do know that you never say never, and that love can really change you.
On March 27, the couple wed in Atlanta at their home, and she found out she was pregnant (again) a week after they exchanged vows. Mai miscarried their first pregnancy.
She told Women’s Health magazine, “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.”
