On Wednesday’s episode of The Real, Jeannie shared the heartwarming announcement with her co-hosts, along with her thoughts about becoming a girl mom.

“That’s the part that I’m still just so overwhelmed with,” the talk show co-host shared about her excitement of having a daughter. “I can’t explain to you how many visions jumped into my head the moment I put that little girl into my hands. I thought about my relationship with Mama Mai. I can’t wait to have that bond with Monaco.”

She added, “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. There’s just so many reasons why raising a little girl is such an honor to me. I would have been happy with anything, but to have Monaco, I feel chosen.

“Three years ago, Jeezy and Jeannie were talking on a bridge in France, talking about what it meant to do life together,” co-host Adrienne Bailon explained on the couple’s behalf. “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.”
