They tied the knot at an intimate backyard wedding in March 2021 in Georgia.

After suffering a miscarriage, Jeannie told Women’s Health magazine that she considered in-vitro fertilization (IVF) but ended up conceiving naturally.


“It was the most beautiful sign that anything’s possible, that you’re not in control and God has a plan. Being a mom is hands down the hardest role in the entire world. Now that we’re bringing another Jenkins into the picture, I have no idea what to expect.”

Jeannie married high school sweetheart Freddy Harteis in 2007. They divorce in 2017 after she refused to give him a child.

In October 2018, Harteis and his girlfriend Linsey Toole welcomed a daughter named Emersyn Rose.
