Jeannie Mai Says ‘Fourth Trimester’ Is ‘Hardest’: ‘I Can’t Control My Crying’

Jeannie Mai is getting candid about motherhood! As previously reported, Jeannie, 43, and rapper Jeezy, (born Jay Jenkins) 44, shared earlier this month that they welcomed their first child together into the world. Now, the 43-year-old talk show host is opening up about her first few weeks as a new mom. In a candid Instagram post shared on Monday (Jan.24), Jeannie Mai Jenkins admits that the “fourth trimester” has been the hardest trimester yet. She wrote,

“While being a new mom is the most exhilarating moment I have ever experienced in my life— nothing prepared me 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….The 4th trimester has been the hardest trimester yet, but I’m a happy, healing mom over here. #postpartum”

She opened up even more when she responded to a social media user, revealing that her hormones have been all over the place and she can’t stop crying. She said,

“hormones….girl I can’t control my crying. Good news or bad news has me bawling. Then you see the dark hole you COULD crawl into, but you fight it by all means to avoid depression–it’s CRAZY.”

The Real co host recently revealed the name of her baby and showed off it’s brand new nursery during a video on her YouTube page, titled ‘Hello Hunnay’ where she confirmed that her newborn’s name is Monaco Mai Jenkins. 


Jeannie reflected on a previous trip to Monaco, France she took with her husband Jeezy and shared why they decided to name their child after the city. She said that during that trip they “established what was going on for” them.

She 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.”

Even though the Jenkins have shared their child’s name and the inspiration behind it, the couple has yet to reveal Monaco’s gender.
