According to PEOPLE Jeezy proposed to The Real co-host on March 27 after his original plan fell through. The 42-year old rapper reportedly planned to propose to Mai sometime this month during a previously planned trip to Vietnam, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, he 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,” a representative for Mai told 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 reportedly met on the set of her daytime talk show and quietly started dating around Nov. 2018. The two made their romance public the following August, when they walked the red carpet at a gala for his non-profit, Street Dreamz, arm-in-arm.
“We are very attracted to each other’s passions to serve,” Mai told the news outlet in November. “So because we have a mutual joy of having purpose, we’re going to find a way to do that together.”
