Jeezy and Jeannie Mai’s Daughter Monaco
The Real host gave birth to their daughter in January 2022 after almost one year of marriage to Jeezy. Fans were shocked when Jeannie announced her pregnancy as she previously stated she didn’t want kids on multiple occasions.
That being said, the pair appear to be good coparents to their little one and have taught her about her heritage early on.
“It really does take a village, and not just to help you but also to help your child just identify themselves with their family and who plays what roles. That’s big for me as a Vietnamese American — family is everything,” Jeannie told People in June 2023, while discussing how she and Jeezy raise their daughter. “Monaco is a beautiful Black Vietnamese American, and what that means is really understanding what being Black means from your grandfather, what being Black means from your cousin, what being Vietnamese means from your grandmother, because she has a totally different take than what I have as a Vietnamese American.”
Jeezy filed for divorce from Jeannie in the following September after more than two years of marriage. He also requested for split custody over Monaco, According to court documents obtained by Life & Style.
