NEW YORK, NEW YORK - FEBRUARY 08: Rapper Jeezy (L) and Jeannie Mai attend the Badgley Mischka front row during New York Fashion Week: The Shows at Gallery I at Spring Studios on February 08, 2020 in New York City.

Jeezy and Jeannie Mai are now engaged! The rapper popped the question to the television host on March 27, as People reports.

Jeezy, 42, had originally planned to propose to Mai, 41, in April sometime during a previously planned trip to Vietnam. However, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, which has globally restricted travel, the rapper decided to surprise Mai with a proposal during a quarantine date night at his home in Los Angeles.

“Jeannie and Jay were set for a trip to Vietnam this April. What Jeannie didn’t know is that Jay was planning to propose,” Mai’s rep told People. “Instead, Jay decided to bring Vietnam to Jeannie with a surprise quarantine date night in his home filled with Vietnamese food and decor.”

Back in November, Mai told People, “We both went through enough in our life to connect on the understanding that love should feel safe, honest, and pure… Immediately that was a magnetic attraction. We are very attracted to each other’s passions to serve. So because we have a mutual joy of having purpose, we’re going to find a way to do that together.”
