Congrats are in order for Jeezy and wife Jeannie Mai Jenkins.

During the season 8 premiere of her show The Real, co-host Jeannie revealed that she and her rapper husband were expecting their first child together. The 42-year old star, who was often candid on the show about not wanting to be mother, held her burgeoning baby bumped as she gushed about how loving the right person changed her mind.

"You know, I was like, I know exactly what I want, I know exactly what kind of woman I want to be, and I always said, 'I'd never be a mom. And there's so many reasons now that are coming to fruition as to why I would have said that then, but I do know that you never say never, and that love can really change you."

The star, who is currently five months along, added:

"I think the reason why it’s such a big deal is because Jeezy made me realize that I've never really felt safe in my life. I've never really truly felt safe. Falling in love with Jeezy, meeting someone who also didn't feel safe in their life, we began to really create a place where our happiness spelled out what safe looked like around us. So, as soon as you feel safe, in a healthy relationship, all of a sudden you start having visions and dreams and for both of us at the same time, it would be becoming parents, having kids."

Jeezy has yet to speak out about the exciting news, but judging by the couple's recent photos from their trip to Greece, life is pretty good for the power couple.

The news of baby Jenkins comes just five months after Jeannie and Jeezy exchanged vows in a lavish backyard back in April. This marks the pair's first child together and fourth for Jeezy.

Congrats again to the happy couple.
