MARIETTA — Atlanta-based rapper Jeezy is stepping in to help one Marietta family have Thanksgiving after they lost their home to a fire.
Sixteen members of the Natt family were displaced after a fire tore through their home in Marietta on Nov. 19. The fire broke out just days after parents Victoria and Tavares brought home a baby girl, their 14th child.
Channel 2's Rikki Klaus first brought you this story over the weekend.
On Thursday, Jeezy treated the Natt family to Thanksgiving dinner at another family member's home. He plans to cater food for the entire family and present them with gifts as they work to rebuild.

Victoria Natt, the mother, felt overwhelmed when the rapper showed up to her mother-in-law’s Marietta home.
“I didn’t believe it. I still can’t believe it," Natt said.
Natt and her family woke up to an inferno around 3:30 Wednesday morning. She had just left the hospital, days after delivering her youngest child. Her husband ran back in the burning house to rescue the days-old girl.
“I’m very grateful to have all my kids with me. Because I don’t know what I’d do without them," she said.
Jeezy served dinner to the young children. He had it catered and he also had an announcement to their mom.
“We’re going to take care of your hotel bill to the top of the year," he told Natt, who was in disbelief.
He told Klaus in an interview that it’s all about giving back.
“Being a part of the community. We’re all we got. So we’re consistently looking out for each other. That’s what Atlanta’s all about," he said.
Natt said they’re still in a hotel until they can find a new place to rent.
“We're going day-by-day until we find something," she said.
This story has touched so many in the community. A GoFundMe has been set up to help the family. You can donate here.
