Jeannie Mai's womb spoke to her after seeing an adorable photo of Gabrielle Union with her daughter and husband. It made her think about maternity.
Jeannie Mai is thinking about motherhood, and it's all thanks to Gabrielle Union's cute and adorable family.
Following the birthday celebration of her daughter, Kaavia James, Union shared a snap of herself, her 1-year-old daughter, and husband, Dwayne Wade.
The snap showed Gabrielle dressed in a black and white stripe crop top, and a black and yellow patterned loose trouser. The actress extended her hands towards her daughter, who wore a white onesie and sneakers.
Wade, dressed in a dark T-shirt and shorts, held onto Kaavia, who leaned back with her hands stretched towards her mother. The couple and their daughter laughed heartily, and Union captioned it,
"We say a dramatic finish, and this is what @kaaviajames does."
The photo got to Mai, and she wrote in the comment section,
"Dear God, what are you doing to my uterus, dude."
The comment got a lot of attention as the "How Do I Look" host has always been vocal about her desire not to have children.
Mai's decision not to experience motherhood allegedly led to the demise of her 14-year relationship and marriage to Freddy Harteis.
If the man really desires to be a father, and you feel that you are the block between that happening, you just don't feel right about yourself
In 2018, the TV personality opened up to her co-hosts on "The Real" that although she never deceived her ex-husband, and he always knew that kids were not in the picture for her, she could not stand to see him give up on something that meant a lot to him.
"If you see how a man is physically with a child, and if the man really desires to be a father, and you feel that you are the block between that happening, you just don't feel right about yourself every single day."
That sense of guilt drove Mai and Harteis to end their marriage in 2017. Fast-forward to two years after, and the TV personality is reconsidering her decision about being a parent.
In March, after turning 40, the Los Angeles resident revealed on "The Real" that she froze her eggs for when she decides to have a baby.
Explaining the decision, she said,
"… Turning 40… your heart is full and healthy. All of a sudden, you're open to love in so many ways. So who knows, you might have a little Jeannie."
In the meantime, Mai's eggs are cooling off and will continue to do so for a few years, unless she embraces motherhood sooner than later.
