The Real co-host Jeannie Mai revealed to her co-hosts during Girl Chat, that sometimes church throws her off when the members pray for her to want babies, when the host has been vocal in the past about not wanting children.
The executive producer of How Do I Look Asia, who has been married to her husband, Freddy Harties for over 10 years, with tears in her eyes, asked folks to stop baby shaming people to make them feel like there’s something wrong with them if they don’t want children.
“I’ve even had people like at church, which is why sometimes it throws me off from church, but they lay hands and they’ll pray for me that I’ll want that. [They] lay hands like ‘God you’re going to put that moment in Jeannie where she will be an amazing mother,” she recalled. “‘Let her know, let her feel that.'”
“I’m the one that deserves to have that moment, not everybody else. Stop baby shaming people to make us feel like there’s something wrong with us if we don’t want children,” she said. “That is my time to decide, that is my conversation with God. I am not a wrong person or less of a woman because I haven’t yet had that feeling or may never have that feeling.”
