Congratulations are in order for Jeannie Mai and Jeezy.
For, the couple has announced that they are expecting their first child together.
Full story below…
Mai first made the reveal on today’s episode of The Real moments ago…
Speaking on the pregnancy, Mai told the publication:
“Jeezy and I have been kind of saving this and hiding this for five months. So, we’re relieved to finally share the news.”
The pair revealed that they decided they wanted to start a family in 2020. However, they were unable to conceive and, like millions, opted to embark on an in-vitro fertilization (IVF) journey.
Mai said of the experience:
“It was not easy. We both needed a bit of assistance, especially with me being 41 at the time.”
They managed to conceive just before their wedding but sadly miscarried shortly after.
Reflecting, Mai added:
“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.
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.”
A week after their wedding at an IVF appointment, the couple learned they were expecting again. Mai said:
“It was the most beautiful sign that anything’s possible, that you’re not in control, and God has a plan.”
Once again, huge congrats!
