Today is Jeezy's birthday!!
From pioneer of trap music to soon to be new proud poppa, Jezzy has had a long successful life.
A former member of the Bad Boy group Boyz n da Hood, Jeezy signed to Def Jam in 2004, and his debut with, Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101, which reached #2 on the Billboard 200, selling 172,000 copies in its first week and receiving platinum certification.
Jeannie Mai Jenkins and Jeezy are also expecting their first child.
"Jeezy and I have been kind of saving this and hiding this for five months. So, we’re relieved to finally share the news," Jeannie Mai said.
A year ago, she and Jeezy decided that they wanted to try and start a family, after getting married, opting to try in-vitro fertilization.
"We both needed a bit of assistance, especially with me being 41 at the time," she said.
"My entire life, I never wanted children. When I say never, I’m talking a hard-stop never," she said. "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."
Congrats Jeannie and Jeezy!
