Once the coronavirus hit and placed travel restrictions around the world, Jeezy decided to grab the bull by the horns and proposed to her with a romantic date night at home at his house in Los Angeles. According to Mai's rep,

Jeannie and Jay were set for a trip to Vietnam this April. What Jeannie didn’t know is that Jay was planning to propose. Instead, Jay decided to bring Vietnam to Jeannie with a surprise quarantine date night in his home filled with Vietnamese food and decor.

This will be the first marriage for Jeezy and the second for Mai, who divorced her first husband, Freddy Harteis, in 2017.
