Jeezy and Jeannie Mai are introducing the world to their baby, Monaco. In a video posted to her YouTube account, the new mom revealed that the couple’s first child together was named after the city in the French Riviera where they made their relationship official.
“It’s the first place that Jay and I traveled to when we were dating,” Jeannie said, while giving a tour of Monaco’s nursery. “And it’s the first place we ever established what was going on with us.”
On the wall is a framed photo of a bridge in Monaco where she and Jeezy had a three-hour talk about their vision for the future. Jeannie returned to that same bridge by herself and FaceTimed Jeezy, and they had the “best date night talk.”
In honor of the luxurious city, Monaco already has his own Bentley “just like daddy.” “The theme of the nursery is what Monaco is about–family, moments, traveling, discussions…key points in my life and Jeezy’s life that brought Monaco here,” she explained.
On Jan. 11, “The Real” co-host announced the arrival of their bundle of joy. “I asked God for a life of love and happiness. He sent me my family,” she captioned a photo from the delivery room. “Baby Jenkins is here.”
Mai previously said she would not be learning the sex of her child before birth.
“That makes things more exciting rather than defining the baby with pink skirts or blue corduroy shorts,” she told WWD. “I’m getting everything because I want the baby to have options. It’s very awakening to see how much you put your baby into very specific stereotypes, based on whether or not you know it’s a boy or a girl.”
