WATCH: Jeannie Mai Gives Unexpected Reaction To Ex-Husband's New Relationship And Baby — Video

Disgruntled much or nah?

The Real host Jeannie Mai and Freddy Harteis are officially divorced after 10 years of marriage. 

Announcing their separation back in October 2017, their dynamic plunged into messy territory pretty quickly as the talk show host questioned the timing of Freddy’s then-pregnant girlfriend's conception.

(It, uh, does seem to be cutting it close if you crunch the official numbers, we guess.)

Now that the T's are crossed and the I's are dotted on the divorce decree, Mai broke from her usual peppy self to share how she actually feels about her ex's decision to move on so quickly and start a new family on the hit syndicated TV show.. 

Sitting around their infamous round table during their "Girl Chat Segment", Co-host Adrienne Bailon said people should be happy for the person they love no matter if they're both in a relationship or not.

Jeannie said she agreed and expressed that had no hard feelings towards Freddy. 

"Even today, when I look at my ex, I'm like, 'I'm so happy that he's a father and that he's found love,'" she said. "Those things are so amazing to me, and it sucks to me that just the divorce is what made it tacky and sticky and ugly — something man-made."

She takes the "bigger person" role as she said her love for "love" helped her come to terms with the fact that the new woman in his life provides something to him that she could not.

"To me, I have so much love in my heart for love, in general, that I can still say I wish you the best," she continued. "I want everything to be so bomb for you. I want you to live that life that I couldn't provide."

Watch her talk about it below:

What do you think of Jeannie's comments?

Working at The Real sounds kind of stressful, no?

Jeannie Mai and her estranged husband, Freddy Harteis, seem to have an odd dynamic at the moment. The talk show host has even questioned the timing of Freddy’s then-pregnant girlfriend's conception. (It, uh, does seem to be cutting it close if you crunch the official numbers, we guess.)

“Yeah, and interestingly with somebody before we divorced, they were already [expecting]. And you know what's funny, I was never really the type to really sit there and actually calculate and do math...,” she confessed. “But then, our Real fam comes in and goes, 'Wait, when you announce you met this person at this time and now you're together having the baby at this time, Jeannie just came out with you guys getting divorced at this time,' that's funny!"

Jeannie and Freddy split back in October 2017. It seems that the divorce plunged into messy territory pretty quickly.

“It turned when, I would say, when money got involved and ego,” Jeannie also shared on The Breakfast Club. “This is where you learn how things change. People say money changes people. So does ego and so does social media. And so does the press. I think that all of that mixed in between — you really gotta keep yourself grounded.”

"I think it sucks," she continued. "It's terrible. You wake up with a rock in your heart and you feel like you can't really make it through the day because it's just so heavy. Especially when finances get involved. Especially when people change."

Now, upon the birth of Freddy’s child with his new lady, Jeannie’s co-host and friend Loni Love has chimed in. And some people think that she is totally in the wrong by doing so.

Freddy popped onto Instagram on Friday to show off his new bundle of joy with Lindsey Toole.

Harteis shared a photo and captioned it: “Fathers: Be your daughters’ 1st love. Open doors for her, pull her seat out and talk to/treat her with the utmost respect…Set expectations on how a man should treat a lady, and she’ll never settle for anything less.”

Life just took on a whole new meaning. Would never believe a little girl could melt my heart like this. I love you Emersyn Rose. Thank you God for trusting me with this little life.

Per Page Six, the comedienne offered up her congrats to Jeannie’s ex.

"Everything works out for a reason," she reportedly wrote. "I wish you the best and welcome to the world Emersyn Rose."

Freddy then replied, saying, "Thank you so much."

In no time, the Internet lit up Love for appearing to switch up on her friend/co-host Mai.

One person reacted and stated: “@comiclonilove everything works out for a reason? Wasn’t @tameramowrytwo and @adriennebailon just on the Breakfast club talking bout how he was cheating during the marriage? His timeline didn’t add up🤔. I’m surprised any of y’all still follow him lol.”

Another commenter shared: “@comiclonilove this is why you have only 1m followers. Fake af. Loyalty is everything.”

A third woman wrote: “@comiclonilove Loni wow, you’re so shady and bitter on the show constantly talking down to the others. Where is your girl code?! This message of “congrats” could and should have been done in private.”

So, was Loni’s choice to pass along a positive message to her girl’s former partner questionable? Or was she just being kind?
