The Real host Jeannie Mai is divorcing her husband Freddy Harteis after 10 years of marriage, a rep for the TV host confirmed to People Magazine.

An emotional Jeannie addressed speculation around her relationship during a segment on the show where her co-hosts revealed what yes or no question they would ask God. Jeannie opened up about the crossroad she faced when she realized her husband wanted to have children despite her not ever feeling that way.

“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 explained.

She added, “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.”

Ladies, would you divorce your man if he wanted children, but you didn’t?

    Not for debate, but a relative of mine along with her husband decided they would not have any children. Fast forward 12 years later, her husband an only male in the family with 4 sisters asked his wife if she would have just one child so that he would have an heir. She resisted but later realized this is something he really wanted. She had their baby, a son and my relative was thrilled to be a mother. Yes, she was scared at first but they went on to have another child (girl). The children are now 17 & 14 and my relative is so happy she changed her mind. She just loves, loves, loves their children and she’s very happy that she changed her mind. She sometimes cries because she realizes she almost denied herself and her husband these beautiful children. People in general can be adamant about certain situations but not getting into Jeannie’s marriage she’s probably afraid she won’t be a good Mom, but sometimes you’ve just got to take those chances. When you truly adore and love your spouse, you can attain the imaginable. I (In my opinion only) she relent and have a child. Who knows Jeannie probably would be a great mother if she took the chance!

    Wow! Women are so mean & viscous to each other. Every woman was not put on earth to reproduce. Why is it a crime when a woman says she does want a child? Every woman is not maternal. Then there is the flip side, women having children to satisfy others and they become depressed and harm themselves and the child. They can’t cope! Making that wanting mother a grand mom just to satisfy her! Omg! Stop bashing this woman who knew years ago what she did not want. He knew it too! He’s wrong for doing what he’s putting her through. Stick to your guns. Don’t give in to pressure..and for all of you saying she should have a baby, be there if she goes through depression and the fallout!! Bet u will be the first ones saying “she never should have had a baby” FICKLE PEOPLE..excuse my typos…

  3. My goodness people are so vicious! She told him in the beginning that probably wasn’t in the cards for her. He chose to still be married to her. The best thing she can do for him because she loves him, is to set him free if his heart’s desire really is to have a child. There are plenty of people in the world who do not want to have children. She didn’t hide the fact that she was one of those people. Why does it have to be more to it than that?

  4. Commenting cause I watch that show on said:

    You are 38 years old. Time is ticking. If you are hesitant regardless of what you told him from the beginning, it is because HE CHEATED IN THE PAST AND YOU ARE SO DAMN WORRIED THAT IF HE GIVES YOU A CHILD YOU IT WILL BE HARDER FOR YOU TO GET A DIVORCE. I will put my money on this. But on the Real Jeannie Mae, go ahead and give him a child otherwise you can’t blame him if he cheats and gets a child somewhere else. Shoot, you don’t look like Beyoncé so im sure he realizes that lol.

  5. Doesn’t matter. You want to leave a legacy. Give that man a damn child. He’s been with you 10 years. You have enough money where you can support and care for the child so WHY NOT? What are you scared of, grey hairs, boob sag, butt sag, not looking attractive afterwards? It happens to everyone. If he loves you, he will continue to love you after all that superficial stuff happens. It’s not the end of the world. Your parents had you otherwise YOU WOULDNT BE HERE. If you are worried about your money, get a post nup if you can do that.

    If their love was so strong and she told him in the beginning that she probaly would not have children, then what’s the big deal? It has to be more to it than that. Maybe he got a side chick and they had a baby. Hey y’all know how these Hollywood people do. what is in the dark will come out in the light.!
