Mai On Having A Kid:
American Hostess with her outspoken nature, Jeannie Mai, always surprised with her plain view on various topics. When it comes to a very subject of kids, she had a jaw-dropping opinion.
After a decade of marriage, fashion expert Jeannie Mai mentioned, what she and her then-husband, Freddy Harteis thought about having children.
On The Real Show, which got aired on October 2014, Jeannie talked about the unspoken things which many women might feel but, never came out openly. She said that she doesn’t want to have a kid, as with big decision, one should make more significant responsibilities, and sacrifices.

She added how her ex-husband, Freddy Harteis, and she decided not having a kid, at the very beginning of their married life. But after seven years, Freddy wished to have a kid but could not be expressive to Mai as she didn't want to have children.
Well! In everyone’s married life, there’s a phase when they want to have a kid. What might be the reason that Mai does not wish to have a kid? Later, in May 2016 in an episode of ‘The Real Show,' this bold lady expressed her backup plan for children.
On that episode of 'The Real,' Jeannie clearly stated,
” I know I am not getting any younger and I know if I was going to have kids, I should decide now, today, 5 minutes ago.”
” I have decided I am going to start thinking about freezing my eggs.”
This Fashion diva was in her late 30s and might have considered having children so that she doesn’t regret her decision later in her life. That might be the reason; she made plans so that she would at least have an option if she wants to get pregnant.
Shamed For Not Wanting To Have Kids
When Mai announced her plans of not having kids anytime soon, a lot of the public media and fans spoke against her decision, but many believed these complaints would alleviate over time. Contrary to these beliefs, they got even worse and almost reached the levels of public shaming.
The hostess talked about how ashamed she was for not wanting to have kids, especially in Churches which she visits religiously. She explained her situation stating,
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. Let her know, let her feel that.'
She also defended her beliefs and how these prayers made her felt very uncomfortable saying,
"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. 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."
Jeannie takes inspiration from Oprah Winfrey, a fellow Christian who also didn't plan on having kids and thanked her personally dedicating these words to her,
"I thank you, Oprah, because you're speaking up for women like me who are doing as much as I can to care for other people, to nurture other people, to have organizations like I do. I want to save the world from human trafficking one survivor at a time. I'm doing that on my own and that's enough for me."
Props to her for sticking her beliefs, no person should be forced to bow down to other's ideas and opinions in these contemporary times, especially religious ones.
