“I love her so much, she’s so opinionated. And I think the best thing is learning how to really teach her how to own who she is,” Jennie Mai Jenkins, 44, said. “She’s a beautiful blend of being Black and Vietnamese and I want her to really understand what that means as a powerful woman today.”

Jennie Mai is married to the popular hip hop star Jeezy.

“We try to have her spend time with her Southern grandparents in Atlanta, in Georgia, and then she goes down to the Bay and she spends time with my Vietnamese grandparents all the time. So she understands both sides and I only speak Vietnamese to her. And then dad only speaks the South to her,” she joked.

Jenkins shares daughter Monaco with her husband Jeezy, 45. The two have been married since April 2021.
