She said: ‘So today, actually with my EP Rachel, I officially signed my name for the first time with Jenkins to it, so that we can put it into the show credit that you see today. 

‘That was the first time I’ve ever signed it, in its official way, so I’m so proud to finally be Mrs. Jenkins!’

Jeannie, 42, also opened up on her special day, which saw her wear a custom nude Galia Lahav gown with a sheer bodice that flowed into a billowing chiffon skirt.

Speaking about her dress, she gushed: ‘I knew that I wanted something very effervescent and nude. 

‘I did not want to wear white, because we all know that white symbolizes purity, and that ship has sailed! I knew I wanted nude because the colour, it represents how skin deep I want to be with Jay. It’s a color that represents how transparent we are with each other.’

And the ceremony itself also held special meaning for the couple, as Jeannie said every part of their wedding was ‘symbolic’.

She told her co-hosts: ‘Even the wedding arch, you notice that they weren’t flowers. 

‘We chose palm leaves, which is very popular in Vietnam. They represent power and eternal life. 

‘And then the Italian ruscus, on the other side of it, represents humility, which is obviously before god. We wanted peace, eternal life and humility there.

‘Everything was symbolic. Even our rings. Down to our wedding rings, we didn’t do anything traditional. I personally love the engagement ring that Jay designed for me. I couldn’t imagine stacking something to that, so I did pinky rings, one for him and one for me on my fingers.’

Adhering to COVID-19 safety protocols, Jeannie and Jeezy made sure that all of their guests, who were asked to don off white, were tested for the virus twice before attending the ceremony.

To prevent the details of their wedding from being leaked to the public, the couple had their family and friends ‘leave their phones at the door.’

As for the ceremony, it was important for Jeannie to pay homage to her Vietnamese heritage by incorporating a traditional tea ceremony, which was hosted by her brother.

‘In this ceremony, we honored our parents by pouring tea as a gesture to welcome Jeezy into my family, and me into his. Then we paid our respects to our parents and ancestors by bowing four times, each one symbolizing a significant gift in the life that they have provided us with,’ she recalled.

She also noted that her husband’s emotional wedding vows ‘brought [her] to tears and joy,’ before promising the hitmaker that ‘every kiss would feel like this.’

Once they officially become husband and wife, the couple and their small wedding party enjoyed a jazz-filled reception, complete with a live band.

Prior to finding love with Jeezy in the fall of 2018, Jeannie was married to ex Freddy Harteis, whom she finalized her divorce from in 2018 after 10 years of marriage. 

Though Jeezy was never married prior, the Put On rapper is father to three children, son Jadarius with ex Tenesha Dykes, son Shyheim with unknown, and Amra Nor with musician ex Mahlet Gebregiorgis.

For Jeannie, the intimate ceremony came after she was forced to quit Dancing with the Stars in November when she was rushed to hospital with epiglottitis, a potentially life-threatening condition that can cause swelling and block airflow to the lungs.

The presenter underwent emergency surgery for the condition, and later said Jeezy had been a ‘rock’ for her throughout the process.
