Jill Scott opened up about her experience of motherhood during an appearance on The Tamron Hall show — she says she prefers not to refer to herself as a “single mother.”
“I never really considered myself a single parent because I was blessed to have a village of family and friends who love us and assist in every way to help him become a really kind person and a genuine person…Uncle Scott and Uncle Lance are my brothers from another mother,” she told Hall.
“They teach him how to fight. They remind him of what manners are supposed to be. They remind him to take out the trash and celebrate him for doing these things. What I don’t want is to end up with somebody 40 years old living in my basement, you understand?”
Scott Jill welcomed son Jett Hamilton on April 20, 2009, with her ex-fiance and former drummer, Li’l John Roberts. Jett was something or a miracle baby as prior to her pregnancy, she was told by doctors that she would not be able to conceive a child.
Scott touched on a wide range of topics during her sitdown with Hall. She opened up about the launch of her brand new venture, the J.ill the Podcast.
“I’ve been having these conversations with my girlfriends for years. And I always thought, man, what if everybody else could hear these conversations too, you know, in the process of trying to learn and grow, which never ends. We’re always trying to get to the other side of the road. I thought maybe this is a good time to share because we’ve had so much contained existence recently, so much contained existence, that maybe we could spark conversation.”
