"I asked God for a life of love and happiness. He sent me my family," Mai captioned her Instagram post.
Four months after revealing her baby bump and pregnancy to the world, Jeannie Mai is a mom. "The Real" co-host shared the big news to her Instagram on Tuesday with one major reveal -- and one missing reveal!
"I asked God for a life of love and happiness," Mai captioned her image. "He sent me my family."
Well, she must have been hanging on to that family pretty closely still -- or at least when the picture was taken -- because there was no baby in evidence. Instead, fans were treated to a baby blanket with feet on them and a card reading "Baby Jenkins," Jenkins being Jeezy's real last name.

We don't yet know how big the baby was, exactly when the baby was born -- there has been speculation that January 5 was the birth date -- or even if the baby is a boy or a girl.
The gender of the baby was actually a topic that Jeannie spoke about shortly after revealing her pregnancy. Talking to Women's Wear Daily, the host said that she didn't want to know the baby's gender beforehand as she had no intention of targeting a particular color or aesthetic.
Instead, she went all out in every direction. "I'm getting everything because I want the baby to have options," she explained. "It's very awakening to see how much you put your baby into very specific stereotypes, based on whether or not you know it's a boy or a girl."
Now that she does know, Jeannie and Jeezy can decide how to move forward with raising their child. It certainly sounds like they won't be leaning too hard into those gender stereotypes, letting "Baby Jenkins" help define their own life and identity from the start.
One thing that is for certain, though, is that Mai will probably have a lot to say about the newborn and motherhood real soon on "The Real." We wouldn't even be surprised if she checks in from maternity leave -- or they check in on her.
