They were linked to an intimate backyard wedding in March 2021 in Georgia.
After suffering a miscarriage, Jeannie recounted Women’s health magazine that she considered in vitro fertilization (IVF) but ended up being conceived naturally.
“It was the most beautiful sign that everything is possible, that you have no control, and God has a plan. Being a mother is without a doubt the most difficult role in the whole world. Now that we bring another Jenkins into the picture, I have no idea what to expect. “
Jeannie married high school boyfriend Freddy Harteis in 2007. They divorced in 2017 after she refused to give him a child.
In October 2018, Harteis and his girlfriend Linsey Toole welcomed a daughter by name Emersyn Rose.
