Jeannie had previously spoken about how she didn’t always plan on having children. But after she fell in love with Jeezy—who was already a father from previous relationships—she knew that she wanted to grow their family.
“Jeezy made me realize I’ve never really felt safe in my life, you know?” Jeannie said on a 2021 episode of The Real. “I never really, truly felt safe. And of course that has to do with things that happened when I was younger. But when you know what feeling unsafe is like, that becomes your world.”
She added, “And falling in love with Jeezy, meeting somebody who also didn’t feel safe in their life, we began to really create a place where our happiness spelled out what safe looked like around us. So as soon as you feel safe in a healthy relationship, all of a sudden you start having visions and dreams. And for both of us, at the same time, it would be becoming parents, having kids.”
