"Today I celebrate a remarkable milestone achieved by my husband, @jeezy, whose memoir Adversity For Sale has soared to the New York Times bestsellers list. Your story has always been an inspiration to me, but seeing it in print has left me even more in awe of your strength and wisdom. You invited us into the most intimate corners of your life, where pain and triumph coexist," she wrote in a sweet post.

In 2020, the brunette beauty gushed over their partnership despite being quarantined together.

"[We] looked at each other at this time of the quarantine like, 'Yup, if we can do this, we are gangster,'" she told Entertainment Tonight at the time. "We're [doing] amazing."

"I'm a super introvert, meaning I love quality conversations, I love intimacy. I love thoughtful presence for one another, so this is a dream for me and it allows me to focus on how to support people who need it out there," she added.
