It’s official: Jeezy and girlfriend Jeannie Mai are engaged.
PEOPLE reports that the rapper (42) proposed to The Real co-host (41) on March 27 at his L.A. residence. The couple was originally supposed to travel to Vietnam this month where Jeezy was to pop the question but due to the travel restrictions because of coronavirus, Jeezy decided to surprise her with a proposal during a special date night at his home in Los Angeles.
“Jeannie and Jay were set for a trip to Vietnam this April. What Jeannie didn’t know is that Jay was planning to propose,” Mai’s rep tells PEOPLE. “Instead, Jay decided to bring Vietnam to Jeannie with a surprise quarantine date night in his home filled with Vietnamese food and decor.”
Jeezy and Mai have been dating since November 2018 but only made their relationship pubic in August 2019. “We both went through enough in our life to connect on the understanding that love should feel safe, honest, and pure,” Mai told PEOPLE in November. “Immediately that was a magnetic attraction. We are very attracted to each other’s passions to serve. So because we have a mutual joy of having purpose, we’re going to find a way to do that together.”
Jeezy recently released his new project Twenty/20 Pyrex Vision produced entirely by his longtime collaborator, Shawty Redd.
