Mom-to-be awaits delivery of first child
Three-time Grammy-winning singer Jill Scott is counting down the days before she gets to lay eyes on what she calls her most precious “gift” yet. The soon-to-be-mom, whose due date is April 25, looks forward to her little one, since past doctors told her that she was unable to conceive. “He’s my little warrior,” Scott told Jet magazine. “So far, he’s been to Africa with me, he’s worked in extreme heat and during 14-15 hour days. He’s hung in there with me through this whole thing and I just cannot get over it. This is incredible.”
If things had gone as intended, Scott would have married Lil’ John Roberts, 37, her band’s drummer, last month. The pregnancy, however, has since altered their plans. “We are just people, of course, so we have to deal with one thing at a time. We may get married. We may not. Who knows? We don’t. We’re just taking it as slow as we can.” (p. 36)
