"Even though I have so much fun with my girls, I also love the rambunctiousness of a boy," Jeannie previously told Distractify. "I don't have a preference. I really, really just want a healthy baby."

"This baby, whether it's a boy or a girl, is going to bake, is going to be to doing facials, is also going to play softball because mommy was a pitcher in high school and killed it," she added. "There's going to be a little bit of everything, no matter who this baby is."

She announced her pregnancy on a September 2021 episode of The Real, divulging that her stances on motherhood have changed a great deal since she and Jeezy first started dating in November 2018.

"I am pregnant! It feels surreal. Because this is the same home where I said so many defiant things. I was like, 'I know exactly what I want, and I know exactly what kind of woman I want to be,' and I always said I'd never be a mom," the host said. "There are so many reasons now that are coming to fruition as to why I would have said that then, but I do know that you never say never and that love can really change you."

"So we walk out, and we close down the club, and he puts his hands on my shoulders, and I go, 'Please don't kiss me, don't kiss me. It's too regular-degular. Like, this is so good. Don't do the basic thing.'" she said. "I should have known he [is] anything but basic. He looks at me, and he goes, 'Can I give you a homework assignment?"

"'I want you to think about the last eight hours we just spent together and think about what you envision us doing together,'" she said. "'What do you picture me being in your life? If this matches my notes, I will pursue you. If not, we're cool to be friends.'"
