Atlanta power couple Jeezy and Jeannie Mai are expecting their first child in 2020, according to sources close to the couple.
A source on daytime talk show The Real claims Jeannie is pregnant with rapper Jeezy's baby.
The source claims Jeannie is "eating for two" and that camera crews are under strict orders to shoot her from an angle to hide her growing baby bump.
"We've been told to shoot Jeannie from the side to make her look slimmer," the source tells MTO News. "Jeannie is already a tiny girl, so there's really no need to make her slimmer."
The source added: "Then we were told that they expect her to gain weight, and they wanted to try and hide it from the cameras.
The 40-year-old television personality is desperate for a baby of her own now that she's approaching middle age.
Her unwillingness to have children led to the collapse of her 10-year marriage to Freddy Harteis.

"My own standards were low," she told co-hosts Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon Houghton and Tamera Mowry about her failed marriage.
"We can go into a whole counseling session on why I only gave myself the bare minimum."
But Jeannie is not putting all the blame on Freddy. "I am not blaming my ex for the things that he barely came through to do," she said. "When [Freddy] said things like 'good for you' or 'that's cool,' I'm like, 'That's great, he supports me!' That to me is my standard of support."
She broke down in tears as she recalled realizing she deserved more when she started dating Jeezy, and he was so attentive to her.
"I didn't even know until my new relationship that something as basic... I'm not crying to feel bad. It was just so touchy. But even something as basic as like at his birthday party, he left his own birthday to drive me to the airport. He was like, 'are you kidding? I want to see you off,'" she said.
