Baby J is here! Jeannie Mai and Jeezy welcomed their child last week and now the daytime TV host is dishing deets about the baby’s real name and the meaning behind it. Get it all inside…
“The Real” co-host announced Baby Jenkins was here in an Instagram post, sharing a picture of....the baby’s hospital blanket:
”I asked God for a life of love and happiness,” Jeannie wrote on January 11th. “He sent me my family. Baby Jenkins is here!”
Before Baby J made his/her arrival, Jeannie said she didn’t want to know the baby’s gender. While she knows the baby’s gender now, neither she nor Jeezy have shared if they welcomed a boy or a girl.
However, we DO know the baby’s name!
The new mom revealed Baby J’s real name, the meaning behind the name and Baby J’s nursery in a new YouTube episode of her series “Hello Hunnay with Jeannie Mai." If you thought it started with a J, guess again.
The happy couple named their new bundle of joy Monaco Mai Jenkins!
“I thought Baby J’s name should be a J name, because obviously Jeannie and Jeezy makes sense, but that wasn’t the name that came to us,” the 43-year-old first-time mom explained. “What really came to us was how baby J came to fruition for us when we were dating.”
After having an intimate conversation on a bridge in Monaco, France, they felt they should name their baby after where they lives changed forever.
“Three years ago, Jeezy and Jeannie were talking on a bridge in France, talking about what it meant to do life together. Here they decided to grow and raise a family together. Hence, they named their child after the city that changed their lives forever: Monaco Mai Jenkins.”
Baby J is Jeannie’s first child and Jeezy’s third.
Peep the clip above.
Jeezy & Jeannie tied the knot in March 2021 and then announced they were pregnant with their rainbow baby a few months later. Jeannie later revealed she had a miscarriage before she got pregnant with Monaco. Previously, Jeannie said she didn’t want to have children, but revealed she had a change of heart after falling madly in love with the Snowman.
Congrats again to the couple!
