"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 had so much to reveal at the show, including the fact that I am pregnant!" Mai said.

Mai said in an interview with Women's Health that she had a miscarriage prior to to her March wedding to Jeezy. She said the miscarriage made her wonder if she "was being punished" because she had never wanted to be a parent until last year.

"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," Mai said of her change of heart about kids.

Mai and Jeezy learned a week after their wedding that they had conceived again via in vitro fertilization (IVF).

"It was the most beautiful sign that anything's possible, that you're not in control, and God has a plan," Mai said.

Jeezy already has three children, Jadarius, Shyheim and Amra, from previous relationships.

Mai and Jeezy met in 2018 when Jeezy was a guest on The Real. Mai has hosted the show since its premiere in 2013.
