Jeannie Mai is settling in as a new mother and decided to share details and photos with her fans about the process of healing postpartum.
‘The Real’ host says the process of becoming a new most is “the most exhilarating moment” in her life, but nothing could have prepared her for the harsh reality of dealing with a new baby. Bravely, Mai included herself wearing a pair of ‘Fridamom’ boyshorts disposable briefs, showing the reality of raising a newborn while still healing from the birth.
“While being a new mom is the most exhilarating moment I have ever experienced in my life— nothing prepared me for postpartum. NOTHING. No book I’ve read, the advice I’ve gotten, that could have compiled ALL the things I’d need just to sit, lay down, walk, or even hold our baby,” Jeannie captioned the pictures.

InstagramShe continued, “This was me a few days postpartum and my God, I’ve been LIVING in these @fridamom briefs. They’re LEGIT the best damn thing! The 4th trimester has been the hardest trimester yet, but I’m a happy, healing mom over here 💁🏻♀️ .”
As we reported, Mai and husband rapper Jeezy, welcomed a bouncing baby boy about a week ago. The couple tied the knot in 2021. Jeannie recently revealed the name of her son and showed it off inside his stunning new nursery. The television host uploaded a video to her YouTube page, titled ‘Hello Hunnay’ where she confirmed that her newborn’s name is Monaco Mai Jenkins.
‘The Real’ Host Describes The Reason For Naming Their Baby Monaco
Interestingly, the famous couple said they tried to name their baby something that starts with the letter “J” — like its mother and father – but nothing came to them. Finally, their son’s name came to them after considering one of their first romantic getaways as a couple was to Monaco, France.
“That’s really the theme of the nursery: what Monaco is about. Family, moments, traveling, discussions, important key points in my life and Jeezy’s life that brought Monaco here,” she said in the clip.
The couple announced the birth of their baby boy, with a picture of a footprint pattern alongside a name tag saying, “Baby Jenkins.” She wrote, “I asked God for a life of love and happiness. He sent me my family. Baby Jenkins is here.”

As you can imagine, fans and friends are flooding her IG account including co-host Adrienne Bailon who wrote, “So beautiful.” A few other mothers commented on the disposable briefs, saying, “I loved those. Someone gifted me them at my baby shower and omgsh. The best gift.” Another added, “You look gorgeous to me and I wanna wear those briefs now! Lol.”
“Take your time. Everyone’s journey will be different. Ask for help when you’re feeling overwhelmed. You’ve got this,” a person reminded the TV host.
Several weeks ago, Jeannie and Jeezy hosted a luxury baby shower for family and friends, which was a winter wonderland theme. In a video from the event, Mai looked like she was ready to pop decked out in a floor-length white dress — with a sign that read “Welcome To Baby Sno’s Bash” as people entered the home.
