AceShowbiz - Jeannie Mai has revealed the sex of her first child, whom she shares with her husband Jeezy (Young Jeezy). The co-host of "The Real" unveiled baby Monaco Mai Jenkins' gender in the latest episode of the talk show.
In a preview clip for the Wednesday, January 26 episode of "The Real", the first-time mom shared that her newborn baby is a girl. The 43-year-old also told the audience and her co-hosts how she felt about becoming a mom to a daughter.
"That's the part that I'm still just so overwhelmed with," Jeannie said. She added, "I can't explain to you how many visions jumped into my head this moment I put that little girl into my hands. I thought about my relationship with Mama Mai. That already, I can't wait to have that bond with Monaco."
Jeannie went on saying, "I also thought about all the things that I didn't learn as a little girl, that I can't wait to teach my daughter now. There's just so many reasons why raising a little girl is such an honor to me." She then explained that she "would have been happy with anything, but to have Monaco, I can't tell you, I feel chosen." She added that becoming a mom is "emotional" and that she "can't wait to raise a really strong, loving, empathetic, humorous, fashionable, fly, little girl."
Just days earlier, Jeannie, who announced her first child's arrival on January 11, divulged her newborn baby's name. In the January 20 episode of her YouTube series, the TV personality gave her fans an extensive tour of her firstborn's nursery. Then at one point, she revealed her baby's name while showing the wall decoration.
"I thought Baby J's name should be a J name because obviously Jeannie and Jeezy make sense, but that wasn't the name that came to us," Jeannie explained in the 13-minute video. "What really came to us was how baby J came to fruition for us when we were dating."
Jeannie further recalled a meaningful trip to Monaco, where they discussed their goals for the future and "established what was going on for us." The TV hostess added, "That's really the theme of the nursery, what Monaco is about. Family, moments, traveling, discussions, important key points in my life and Jeezy's life, that brought Monaco here."
More recently, Jeannie has candidly shared her motherhood journey after welcoming baby Monaco. In her latest Instagram post, she showed off her postpartum body as she opened up about her tough recovery.
In it, Jeannie admitted that the "fourth trimester" has been the "hardest" yet. She further elaborated that "being a new mom is the most exhilarating moment [she has] ever experienced in [her] life- nothing prepared [her] for postpartum."
"NOTHING. No book I've read, advice I've gotten, that could have compiled ALL the things I'd need just to sit, lay down, walk, or even hold our baby," Jeannie confessed. The new mom further explained a photo that saw her rocking a pair of gray high-waisted briefs and black bra while holding a baby bottle and sitting on a couch, "This was me a few days postpartum and my God, I've been LIVING in these @fridamom briefs."
