Jeannie Mai Jenkins Surprises Husband Jeezy with Trip to Vietnam for 2nd Anniversary

The rapper and his television personality wife are celebrating two years of wedded bliss.

Jeannie Mai Jenkins surprised her husband Jeezy with a trip to Vietnam that was over half a year in the making for their second wedding anniversary. The Real alum told People that the trip was important for them to celebrate their multi-cultural family.

"Taking my husband, Jeezy, to Vietnam was a long awaited adventure," the 44-year-old television personality told PEOPLE. "When Jeezy and I met, we bonded over the similarities and differences of our cultures. Now that we have a daughter blending our worlds, it gives even more meaning to explore Vietnam together as a multicultural family."

"I actually took a year and a half to plan this trip. Jeezy had no idea where we were going until we boarded the actual plane!" she shared. "Our trip was very specific in that I wanted to try our hand at everything the locals do, from cooking, fishing, to even farming. All I gave my husband was a list of what to pack, and the rest of the trip fell into place perfectly."

Jenkins shared that she utilized Your Travel Nation--a high-end travel agency to help plan the trip complete with "the most romantic dinner on the beach of Danang overlooking the horizon."

"It was a pivotal moment for me as I reflected on the fact that 40 years ago my mom made a courageous boat escape in pursuit of safety and freedom, and now I get to experience Vietnam in an entirely new perspective with my husband," she added.

Jenkins is currently the host of America's Test Kitchen: The Next Generation. She and Jeezy were married in an elegant outdoor ceremony in April 2021 at their home in Atlanta. Last year, the pair welcomed a baby girl named Monaco.

Jeannie shared photos and video clips from the trip to Vietnam on her popular blog, Hello Hunnay.
