There was also an epic three-layer cake designed to look like a globe sitting on top of a suitcase with a cake topper that read, “Oh the places Baby Jenkins will go.”

The star-studded bash brought together many of Mai Jenkins’ famous friends, including her co-host from The Real, Adrienne Houghton, former The Talk co-host and expecting mom Elaine Welteroth and cosmetic gurus Jerrod Blandino and Jeremy Johnson.

Speaking with Women’s Health in September, Mai Jenkins said finding out about the pregnancy was “the most beautiful sign that anything’s possible, that you’re not in control, and God has a plan.”

“Being a mom is hands down the hardest role in the entire world. Now that we’re bringing another Jenkins into the picture. I have no idea what to expect,” she said, adding of Jeezy, who is father to two kids, “He’s an amazing dad, [and it] overwhelms me with even more love.”

Sharing her pregnancy news on Instagram on Sept. 20, Mai Jenkins wrote, “When the heart sees what has been invisible to the eye … I have never been this thankful to feel so alive. Here come the Jenkins.”
