Rolling out has previously reported that “The Real” co-host Jeannie Mai and rapper Jeezy made their relationship “Instagram official” after dating quietly for nearly a year.

On the opening of the new season of “The Real,” Mai finally conveys how Jeezy has blown her mind and that their romance has been “one of most beautiful experiences of my life.”

She added that she finally found “my equal.”

The couple began dating incognito in November of 2018. Speculation began swirling that the two were together back in the spring of 2019, but they finally went public on Aug. 22 at Atlanta’s inaugural SnoBall Gala.

Mai, 41, calls Jeezy, whom she lovingly refers to as “J,” a very cerebral person and deep thinker who is very much a giver. “I have to tell you getting to know J — you guys know him as Jeezy, he’s J to me — has been one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. He’s introspective. He’s passionate. He’s incredibly deep. He’s a visionary. He’s a great leader. He’s an amazing servant to his community,” Mai said as she smiled and blushed to her audience on the show.

“What’s crazy is that the things that I’ve been criticized for my whole life and in my past relationships — ‘Jeannie, you’re too deep; you think about things too much — like why’s everything gotta have a purpose?’” she said. “And I’m not one for small talk or small conversations. I wanna know, ‘Why do you think the way you do? What brought you to look at things the way you do? Who are you? Who’s important to you?’ And I found my equal,” she said as the audience cheered.
