“The Real” co-host Jeannie Mai Jenkins and her husband, rapper Jeezy (real name is Jay Wayne Jenkins), have welcomed their first child together. Jenkins, 43, wrote on Instagram: “I asked God for a life of love and happiness. He sent me my family. Baby Jenkins is here.” She also shared a photo of the newborn’s hospital bassinet containing a swaddle blanket and a name card that reads “Jenkins” but did not disclose the child’s name or sex.
Jenkins and Jeezy, 44, tied the knot in March of last year, and shortly after their wedding, Jenkins experienced a miscarriage. Said Mai Jenkins: “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.” Jenkins had a change of heart about having children of her own after she began dating Jeezy in 2018. He has three children from previous relationships.
