Jeezy popped the question to the television host on March 27, as People reported. 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.”
