Jeannie Mai is going the distance on the dance floor with Jeezy by her side. Disney night at Dancing With the Stars proved extra magical for The Real co-host, who performed a Viennese Waltz to "Married Life" from Up. During rehearsals with pro partner Brandon Armstrong, Jeannie admitted that her and the rapper's love story inspired her decision to dance to the title track from the beloved Pixar flick. "It's very symbolic to J and I," she shared. "My entire life took a turn when I met my fiancé J. We went on our first date and we got engaged a few months ago...
He adds to my dreams. He colors them in. I played Up for him while we were dating. This movie is how I would like to grow old together. Jeezy, who just so happened to be celebrating his 43rd birthday when the bride-to-be competed, added, "On our first date, I couldn't look through her or around her.
The television host entered the competition with not much knowledge of the dancing world, telling People that she had never ballroom danced before and her experiences dancing before were limited to "electric slides at wedding to dancing on top of a couple of speakers at bachelorette parties and raves." Despite the inexperience, it appears Mai has been a quick learner just three weeks into the competition. Here are some of the most notable reactions from viewers after watching Mai's outburst of emotions after netting her highest score to date. Jeezy is showing the love! The ATL-based rapper and music mogul, born Jay Wayne Jenkins, turned 43 years old on Monday, but before he could fully celebrate his own birthday he had to show love and support to his beloved Jeannie Mai!
