Jeannie Mai's estranged husband shares Thanksgiving photo of baby daughter and new girlfriend
Jeannie Mai’s ex-husband has completely moved on and is enjoying flaunting his new family.
In a Thanksgiving photo on Instagram, Freddy Harteis put an arm around his girlfriend, Linsey Toole, and their one-month-old daughter, Emersyn Rose.
“Beyond Thankful!” the “Hollywood Hunter” host wrote. “Hope you all had a blessed and extra special Thanksgiving.”
Harteis and Toole welcomed their daughter on October 25, nearly a year after he and “The Real” co-host announced they were going their separate ways.
Harteis shared a cute snap of the infant on social media, along with a heartwarming caption that showed just how smitten he was:
“Life just took on a whole new meaning. Would never believe a little girl could melt my heart like this. I love you, Emersyn Rose. Thank you God for trusting me with this little life.”
Toole also took to Instagram with a photo from the delivery to reveal that Emersyn came into the world at 9:15 PM in Saint Thomas Midtown Hospital, Nashville. Since then, the new parents have been sharing adorable photos of their little one, and are obviously in baby heaven.
Some days before Emersyn’s birth, Mai broke down on the set of her daytime show, confessing to her co-hosts and the audience that she regrets marrying Harteis. The 39-year-old said: “Knowing what I know now about who I married, I wouldn’t have married him.”
Mai continued in tears:
“It’s just crazy. You hear all the time that money can change people. Well, divorce can really change people. It’s just so weird because the one thing that he would always say back then is like, ‘You really, truly don’t know a person until they don’t get what they want.’ But I never thought he would be the one to prove that to me.”
The admission was a clear departure from the early stages of their divorce when Mai said she still loved her ex and was happy for him. In an episode of “The Breakfast Club,” Mai said the switch came “when money got involved, and ego.”
While Harteis is flaunting his new family, Mai is also having the best time of her life with family and friends. The TV personality, who previously credited her unwillingness to have kids as the reason for the divorce, spent Thanksgiving with her friend and co-host, Adrienne Houghton. She’s also been flaunting the results of her decision to maintain a healthy weight and lose the obsession to remain thin.
Mai just signed off on her marriage of ten years, but she sure is living life to the fullest.
