Meanwhile, Jeezy is already the father of two children, and he and Mai Jenkins have been trying for a kid since last year. She told Women's Health that she discovered she was pregnant a month before their wedding and subsequently miscarried. "I wondered if I was being punished. I wondered if I'd jinxed myself or cursed myself. My entire life, I never wanted children. When I say never, I'm talking a hard-stop never," she shared, adding, "Falling in love with Jeezy made me see life differently for myself. Our love is honest, pure and safe … something I hadn't felt as a child."
