Jeezy and Jeannie Mai welcome their first child together

Jeannie Mai and Jeezy have welcomed their first child together. 

The Real co-host announced the news on Tuesday in an Instagram post. “I asked God for a life of love and happiness,” she wrote. “He sent me my family. Baby Jenkins is here.”

The couple didn’t share the name of the newborn.

Mai opened up about parenthood in an interview with Women’s Health last September. “Being a mom is hands down the hardest role in the entire world,” she said. “Now that we’re bringing another Jenkins into the picture, I have no idea what to expect.”

The news arrives less than a year after the couple exchanged vows, tying the knot at their Atlanta home last March. They subsequently revealed they were expecting a child together in September on The Real.

“Jeezy and I have been kind of saving this and hiding this for five months,” Jeannie said. “So, we’re relieved to finally share the news.”

Jeannie continued, “And falling in love with Jeezy, meeting someone who also didn’t feel safe in their life, we began to really create a place where our happiness spelled out what safe looked like around us,” she said. “So, as soon as you feel safe, in a healthy relationship, all of a sudden you start having visions and dreams and for both of us at the same time, it would be becoming parents, having kids.”

One of our favorite things about our girl Jeannie is her growth, incredible honesty, and transparency. We’re so excited to officially welcome our fifth co-host, Baby Jenkins! To see how Jeannie first revealed the news to Garcelle, Loni and Adrienne tune in TODAY!
