This is just too adorable!
Jill Scott just scored a cute cover with Ebony magazine's May issue, and to make her front that much more exciting, her son Jett joined her in the GAWRGEOUS photograph.
While the issue is focused on Black America, the 40-year-old songstress opens up about being a single mom, motherhood and what it takes to raise a young man.
Here are the HIGHlights:
On being a single mother:
"That I-can-do-it-by-myself mentality is a lie. I’m sorry if I hurt anybody’s feelings, but you cannot do it all by yourself. You need a village: some aunties, grandmoms, friends. I couldn’t do this by myself and would be a fool to think I could.”
"Motherhood is getting your hands and your feet in the soil…When Jett puts my face in his hands and tells me, ‘Mommy you’re so pretty’ or smells me, it’s so wonderful.”
On raising a growing boy:
"It’s challenging being a single mom…No matter what I do, I’ll never be a man. Ever. I can show Jett how to be a thinker, how to enjoy music or how to feel, and to conquer. But I cannot show him how to be a man.”
Jill may not be able to show her son how to become a man, but she can teach him how to grow up into a responsible individual, which at the end of the day is all that matters!
Ch-ch-check out Miz Scott's cover (above)!
