Jeannie hasn't been shy about stating that a double wedding would be ideal — since a traditional Vietnamese wedding and another ceremony would allow the couple to celebrate their cultures. However, the couple was delayed like many engaged pairs due to COVID-19.

But, it turns out that love won and they didn’t allow the state of the world to get in the way of them tying the knot. According to Vogue, the couple tied the knot at their home on March 27, 2021, exactly one year after their engagement.

"We were really looking forward to having all of our friends and family there to celebrate,” Jeannie told the outlet. "But we had to change all of our wedding plans due to COVID. After Jeezy’s mother unexpectedly passed, we quickly learned that life is too short. And at the end of the day, Jeezy and I really just wanted to become husband and wife."

Jeezy pulled out all the stops for Jeannie’s engagement ring.

They don’t call Jeezy a baller for no reason. The “Soul Survivor” rapper has been completely smitten with Jeannie ever since the beginning. So, of course, it was only right that he went the extra mile with the engagement ring.

And boy did the rapper come correct. According to E! News, Jeezy spent at least $150,000 on the rock. In fact, jewelry experts claim that the ring is truly one of a kind.

“Her ring looks like a gorgeous 4-5ct marquise cut diamond set in a thicker pave diamond setting featuring a tiny emerald in her band," Olivia Landau CEO of The Clear Cut told the publication.

While the site reports that Jeezy had all intentions of proposing on their trip to Vietnam, their plans were stalled due to the pandemic. So, in true Jeezy fashion, he put his unique touch on their engagement.

The site revealed that he decided to propose on a surprise quarantine date night. 

And now, they are husband and wife — congrats to the happy couple!
