The Real's pregnant Jeannie Mai Jenkins breaks down in tears gushing about husband Jeezy & showing off baby bump on show

THE REAL'S Jeannie Mai Jenkins announced she's expecting with her husband Jeezy on the show and said that she finally feels "safe" in her life.

The 42-year-old revealed the news on Monday's episode of the talk show where she proudly stood up to show the audience her pregnant belly.

"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!," Jeannie shared as she sprang up from her seat caressing her baby bump.

The cast and audience cheered for joy for the star who wore a white belly band to support her growing belly.

Jeannie also talked about her husband in the clip, admitting through tears how her life has changed since connecting with the rapper.

"Jeezy made me realize that I never really felt safe in my life, ya know? I've never really truly felt safe.

"Falling in love with Jeezy, meeting someone who also didn't really feel safe in their life, we began to create a place where our happiness spelled out what safe looked like around us," she said.

Jeannie shared the clip on her Instagram as well as photos from a maternity shoot she took with Women's Health.

The talk show host wore a royal blue gown with a long train blowing in the wind as she posed with her husband on a rooftop overlooking the ocean.

In one photo, Jeezy got down on one knee bringing his lips to his wife's pregnant belly as she planted a kiss on the top of his head.

She captioned the post: "When the heart sees what has been invisible to the eye… I have never been this thankful to feel so alive. Here come the Jenkins"

Fellow The Real co-host Adrienne Bailon commented writing: "SO BEAUTIFUL," while her other castmate Loni Love wrote: "Congratulations !!!!! Baby Jenkins is coming!!!!! #auntieloni reporting for duty!!!!!!!!"


The television host spoke to Women's Health about the couple's process of getting pregnant, after trying for "over a year" and then resorting to IVF due to her age and health complications.

The former makeup artist told the outlet: "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 continued: "It was not easy. We both needed a bit of assistance, especially with me being 41 at the time."

Just one month before the Dancing With The Stars alum said "I do," the couple found out they were pregnant.

However, shortly after, the performer suffered a devastating miscarriage.

"I wondered if I was being punished," she recalled, explaining that prior to her new relationship she had never wanted to be a parent.

"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."

After her miscarriage, she reconsidered her viewpoint on expanding the family as she felt she found a "safe" environment with her now-hubby.

"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," she confessed.


A week after their wedding, Jeannie learned she was pregnant again, which she attributed to how "stress-free" and "happy" she was at that time.

"It was the most beautiful sign that anything’s possible, that you’re not in control, and God has a plan," she explained.

The makeover expert has reflected on her own childhood since the development, as she remembered the "trauma" she felt after being a "sexual assault survivor."

"I’m so aware of my own emotions growing up right now. It all comes back to you," she explained.

She added of her experience: "It still affects me to this day as an adult. So now, when I think about my child, the one thing I can tell you is how much I plan to protect this child.

"I’ve got that down on lock."

Jeezy, who already has three children from previous relationships, has been an "amazing dad" so far, Jeannie gushed, as she claimed that his support has "overwhelmed me with even more love."
