R&B singer and actress Jill Scott and her fiancé, drummer Lil John Roberts, have welcomed a boy, Jett Hamilton Roberts, born at 4:20 p.m. on April 20. He weighed in at 7 lbs., 8 oz.
Jill stars on HBO’s new series The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, based on the popular novels by Alexander McCall Smith. The 37-year-old three-time Grammy Award winner spent the first trimester in Botswana and said ‘that was one of the biggest challenges of my life. First trimester! You’re sick every morning. It was seven hours time difference, the heat, the bugs, the 14 hour days.”
Jill opened up about her previous struggles with fertility: “I definitely had issues over the course of my life, reproduction issues. I was married for five years and could never conceive a child. Until now … It’s the most amazing thing that’s ever happened to me.”
Congratulations to the Scott-Roberts family!
