Jeannie Mai Jenkins is still on cloud 9 after tying the knot with rapper Jeezy, real name Jay Jenkins.
“The Real” co-host married Jeezy on March 27 at their mansion in Atlanta. She discussed the couple’s nuptials during Tuesday’s episode of the daytime talk show.
Jeannie revealed she officially signed her name with her new surname for the first time.
“So today, actually with my [executive producer] Rachel, I officially signed my name for the first time with Jenkins to it.
Jeannie said she signed her name “we can put it into the show credit that you see today. That was the first time I’ve ever signed it, in its official way, so I’m so proud to finally be Mrs. Jenkins!”
Jeannie, 42, also opened up about her wedding day to the raspy voice rapper. She wore a custom nude Galia Lahav gown with a sheer bodice over a billowing chiffon skirt.
“I knew that I wanted something very effervescent and nude. I did not want to wear white, because we all know that white symbolizes purity, and that ship has sailed! I knew I wanted nude because the color, it represents how skin deep I want to be with Jay. It’s a color that represents how transparent we are with each other.”
Jeannie was forced to quit “Dancing with the Stars” in November when she was rushed to hospital with epiglottitis, a potentially life-threatening inflammation in the throat that can block airflow.
She underwent emergency surgery, and later said Jeezy was her “rock” and stayed by her side throughout the procedure.
