Jeannie Mai and Jezzy are expecting their first child together, one year after they began trying to conceive.
The Real co-host shared the news with Women’s Health magazine.
She said: “Jeezy and I have been kind of saving this and hiding this for five months.
“So, we’re relieved to finally share the news.”
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).
“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.
A week after their wedding, at a doctor’s appointment for her IVF treatments, Jeannie discovered she was pregnant again.
Jeannie Mai was married to Freddy Harteis for 14 years but they divorced partly due to her not wanting kids.
Her ex-husband moved on to have two kids with his girlfriend.
This will be Jeannie’s first child but her husband, Jeezy, is already a father-of-two.
