New York, Sep 21 (IANS) Rapper Jeezy's wife Jeannie Mai Jenkins is pregnant with their first baby together.

The TV host Mai showed off her baby bump during the season eight premiere of 'The Real' on Monday, reports Complex.com.

The co-host of 'The Real' shared the news both on the show and in an interview with Women's Health. The couple decided they wanted to start a family roughly a year ago.

"Jeezy and I have been kind of saving this and hiding this for five months," she said in the interview. "So, we're relieved to finally share the news."

On TV, Mai explained that "our Real fam is growing," and revealed she never intended to be a mom until later in life. As she said on the show, "love can really change you."

"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."

Mai, 42, and Jeezy, 43, have been married since March. The rapper has three children from former relationships: Jadarius, Shyheim, and Amra.

Mai told the magazine it "was not easy" to conceive, sharing that she discovered she was pregnant a month before the wedding, then had a miscarriage.

"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 never," she said, adding that Jeezy made her "see life differently for myself."

"Our love is honest, pure and safe?something I hadn't felt as a child," she confided.
