Talk show host, Jeannie Mai and her husband, Freddy Harteis are divorcing after 10 years of marriage.
Although no reason was given for their split which was described as “amicable” by Jeannie’s rep, it is generally believed that it might have something to do with The Real co-host’s insistence to not have a child.
Jeannie had revealed to her co-hosts on the show back in 2014 that Freddy was beginning to rethink their earlier agreement that she wouldn’t have babies.
“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,” she said. “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. 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.”
