Jeannie Mai Jenkins is expecting First Baby with Husband Jeezy After Miscarriage


Jeannie Mai Jenkins is pregnant, and expecting her first baby with musician husband Jeezy (born Jay Wayne Jenkins).

The 42-year-old star revealed this on The Real talk show Monday, and in an interview with Women’s Health. Jeezy is already dad to two children.

“I can definitely say that our Real fam is growing, and it’s been really hard to keep all of these secrets for you guys because we’ve had so much to reveal here at the show, including the fact that I am pregnant!” the co-host said during the broadcast.


Mai Jenkins told Women’s Health, “Jeezy and I have been kind of saving this and hiding this for five months. So we’re relieved to finally share the news.”

“We both needed a bit of assistance, especially with me being 41 at the time,” Jeannie explains. But then, just a month before the couple’s March 2021 wedding at their Atlanta home, Jeannie discovered she was pregnant. Soon after, however, she had a miscarriage.

She also revealed that this news comes after a pregnancy loss: Mai Jenkins found out she was pregnant a month before her wedding to Jeezy, which was in March, and then suffered a miscarriage. They’d been trying for a baby since last year.


“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.”

Jeannie and Jeezy decided they wanted to start a family nearly a year ago, but they struggled to conceive. “It was not easy,” the former Dancing with the Stars contestant says. The couple opted to try in-vitro fertilization (IVF), which was a humbling experience.

Jeannie Mai Jenkins added that “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.”

“Being a mom is hands down the hardest role in the entire world. Now that we are bringing another Jenkins into the picture. I have no idea what to expect.”
