The Real’s Jeannie Mai Splits from Husband After 10 Years
“The Real” co-host Jeannie Mai and husband Freddy Harteis are divorcing after 10 years of marriage.
I 2014, Mai, 38, revealed to her co-hosts of the daytime show that her and her husband disagreed about expanding their family.
“You know how much I love Freddy, my husband. He’s my life. And before we got married, I was very clear about the fact that I probably would not have kids, just because I’ve never felt that. And now, getting older, he definitely seems like he wants kids, and he actually came out and said that he wants children,” an emotional Mai said at the time, tearing up on-air.
“I guess it’s just really hard because I can’t just have a child for another person, and you don’t have a child to save your marriage, but we are in love, and we are enjoying life, and he’s my Freddy, and I’m his Jeannie, and we don’t have any other problems except that, which, you never know what could happen in the future,” she added. “So right now we are clinging to each other, and we’re waiting for God to kind of tell us what that means, and it’s kind of weird to go to sleep every single night holding on to that person you love so much, not knowing where it’s gonna go.”
The divorce is said to be amicable.
