It is a great moment for Jay Wayne Jenkins, aka Jeezy, and Jeannie Mai, as they are expecting their first child together. Mai showed off her baby bump at the premiere of The Real Season 8 on September 20.
The TV host is pregnant for the first time while her husband is the father of three children, Jadarius, Shyheim, and Amra, from his previous relationships.
The news was a shock for Mai's fans as everyone knew that she did not want to have kids.
The couple tied the knot in March 2020. The rapper planned to propose to Jeannie during a trip to Vietnam in April 2020. However, that could not happen because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The duo reportedly started dating in 2018 and made their first public appearance on the red carpet of the Street Dreamz gala for the rapper's nonprofit.
Children of Jeezy
Jeezy is becoming a father for the fourth time. His oldest child is Jadarius Jenkins, and his mother is Tenesha Dykes. Jadarius is a rapper and is also known as Lil’ Jezzy.
Jadarius is currently pursuing his Bachelor’s degree, and Jeezy also gifted him a Wrangler Jeep on his birthday.
Details about the rapper’s second child, Shyheim Jenkins, are currently not available. Although it is still a mystery who his mother is, sources say that Tenesha Dykes is also his mother.
Born in February 2014, Amra Nor Jenkins is Jeezy’s third child. Musician Mahlet Gebregiorgis is her mother. However, Mahlet reportedly does not have a good relationship with Jeezy.
