One year after they started trying to conceive, Jeannie Mai and Jezzy are expecting their first child together.
The news was revealed with Women’s Health magazine by The Real co-host.
“Jeezy and I have been saving and hiding this for five months,” she explained.
As a result, we’re relieved to finally be able to share the news.
Nearly a year ago, Jeannie and Jeezy decided they wanted to raise a kid, but they were unable to conceive.
The former Dancing with the Stars participant admits it wasn’t easy.
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.
