Jeannie Mai-Jenkins and Jeezy‘s marriage is still in the honeymoon phase, according to the ecstatic daytime television host.
The couple surprised fans by tying the knot in an intimate ceremony at their Atlanta area home on March 27.
The 42-year-old Capricorn said life is different as Mrs. Jay Jenkins.
“Oh my god. Married life feels 1,000 percent different than when we were dating, in the greatest way,” Mai said on Tuesday in an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
“I loved our dating life because we really spent such concentrated quality time getting to know each other and making sure that we were right for each other,” she said.
“And now being married, it’s even more handled with such delicacy and such thoughtfulness, because we’re in our 40s and we both grew up in households that weren’t healthy marriages. We have never seen what that looks like.
“[Today] he looked at me before he took off again to another long day of work and he said, ‘Tomorrow, don’t book anything. I’ve got you.’ And I’m like, ‘Ooh,'” she said. “Immediately, I’m already thinking about what am I going to wear… I’m already planning it, as I’m here sitting in work with you.”
Jeannie appreciates the consistent level of attention she gets from her loving husband.
“Something like that from your spouse immediately sets something for you to look forward to because [it shows] the intention to date me, even though we live in the same home and we’re going to bed in the same room. And then it eggs me on to think, ‘Ooh, I can’t wait for my next date with him. I can’t wait to whisk him off his feet and surprise him.'”
