She said, ‘So today, actually with my EP Rachel, I officially signed my name for the first time with Jenkins on it so we can put it on the show you see today.

“That was the first time I’ve ever signed it, in the official way, so I’m so proud to finally be Mrs. Jenkins!”

Jeannie, 42, also opened up on her special day, wearing a tailored nude Galia Lahav dress with a see-through bodice that flowed into a billowing chiffon skirt.

Speaking of her dress, she gushed, ‘I knew I wanted something really sparkly and nude.

‘I didn’t want to wear white because we all know that white symbolizes purity, and that ship has sailed! I knew I wanted naked because the color represents how deep I want to be with Jay. It is a color that indicates how transparent we are with each other. ‘

And the ceremony itself had special significance for the couple as well, as Jeannie said that every part of their marriage was ‘symbolic’.

She said to her co-hosts, ‘Even the wedding arch, you can tell they weren’t flowers.

‘We opted for palm leaves, which are very popular in Vietnam. They represent strength and eternal life.

And then the Italian ruscus, on the other side of it, stands for humility, which clearly stands for god. We wanted peace, eternal life and humility there.

‘Everything was symbolic. Even our rings. We haven’t done anything traditional until our wedding rings. I personally love the engagement ring that Jay designed for me. I couldn’t imagine stacking anything on that, so I made pinkie rings, one for him and one for me on my fingers. ‘

For Jeannie, the intimate ceremony came after she was forced to quit Dancing with the Stars in November when she was rushed to hospital with epiglottitis, a potentially life-threatening condition that can cause swelling and block airflow to the lungs.

The presenter underwent emergency surgery for the condition and later said that Jeezy had been a ‘rock’ to her throughout the process.
