The rumors have been confirmed. Jamecia Bennett, American Idol’s Paris Bennett’s mom, brags about how happy she is to become a grandmother.

“American Idol” 2006 contestant Princess P is becoming a mommy. Paris Bennett is expecting a baby girl in October and will be 20 when mommyhood arrives.”This makes five generations,” an overjoyed Jamecia Bennett [said]. Jamecia, who like her daughter and mother is a singer, is absolutely over the moon about being a first-time grandmother.

“I’m proud of how she did it. I was 16 when I got pregnant,” said Jamecia.

Who’s the daddy? “He chooses not to be in the public eye,” said Jamecia. “I respect that.” What does he do for a living? “I can’t tell,” she said.

“She has a ring,” said Jamecia, who’s hopeful that she’ll be planning a wedding for Paris.

The planning for an August baby shower is already underway. A few celebrities may fly into town for the show, including Queen Latifah. Latifah has made it clear that she plans to spoil this baby with gifts and that she won’t be stopped. You’re the princess but I’m the queen, Jamecia said Latifah told Paris.

How sweet. We’re absolutely positive that Big ‘Tifah will make a wonderful Uncle Auntie to her child. Best of luck to ’em.

    Kompton’s Kutie….U ain’t the only one!

  • Thin and Fine

    This is crazy!!! Her mother should support her of course but not congratulate her. This shows what kind of family cycle they have. SMH

  • Lauren

    this should have been posted under “Jesus Take The Wheel”


    Truly, I mean making a mistake is one thing but BOASTING about it??? C’mon people, we as women have to do better than this for our children and their future. Just because you made a mistake does not mean its prefectly fine for your daughter to do the same thing….Damn shame.

  • Mimi

    I know. How ignorant and ghetto can you be by celebrating a teen age pregnancy? Why are the older women in this girl’s life so stupid and trifling. Did she even graduate from high school? Did they encourage her to go to college and have a career capable of raising a child before she had one. Pathetic. The father probably n uneducated, unemployed fool I bet.

  • Aunt Viv



    Thanks for the clarification. SMH.

  • Somer

    @Ldyk…..That is what we do, celebrate stupidy! You have ignorant folks who had children at very young ages who think just cause their children waited a little later to have out of wedlock kids, they have accomplished something.

    My parents have been married 42yrs. Over the years I have watched my mom do something that I started doing. My mom will NOT go a baby shower for an unwed mother no matter the age of the expecting mom. She would always tell me that you can give a gift without having a party to celebrate poverty & being a single parent. My job also have the same rules. It’s not writen in stone but coworkers have noticed that everytime they submit a request to have a shower for an unwed mother on company time, it’s always denied without explanation. Married moms are always given big blow out showers with all decorations & the cake being paid for by the company. Coworkers have said it’s racist. Can you figure out why?

  • msjlh

    If this was Sheneequa from around the way you wouldn’t see her mother on the red carpet looking all happy because her young daughter is pregnant.

    only the rich and famous get celebrated for their mistakes while the rest of us peions get chastised.

  • Lauren

    @ Somer, I agree and concur…..

    I had my first child at 17, I was ashamed and so were my parents, I learned my lesson though, they didn’t go around braging about me, if somebody asked them, they would tell them they wouldn’t deny it, but they just wouldn’t boast about it…..I however DID have a beautiful ababy shower, because no matter how the baby was concieved CHILDREN ARE BLESSINGS FROM GOD. you just have to know what to say, and I don’t think Jamecia said the right thing here. She sounded stupid and irresponsible. Now that I am older I look back at when I was 16 and think to myslef there was no excuse for me getting pregnant I love my 4 year old now but she could have waited a couple years, because they’re are too many forms of contraceptives to say “the condom broke”

  • GreenEyes

    Btw, its triflin that her mother is bragging about this. Im not saying if she wants to be happy.. do her.. but don’t go making a huge deal about it. 19 is extremely young to be a mother and to get married. Some people make it work..but Paris doesn’t seem to be the most mature person in the world with the best influences around.

    SMH at her saying she is happy she waited until age 20 to have a baby…

  • Lauren

    Why should they be discriminated against? Why should they be judged by people who are without sin in their own life?


    I also agree with this statement, they should not be discriminated against, but If I were at a company and was pregnant and not married I wouldn’t want to have a baby shower around a bunch of probably married and happy people, thats just something I wouldn’t want to put myself through….

  • GreenEyes


    Like I said, every situation is different. It should be the mothers choice to have a shower or not..not some executive sitting on his high horse. If its something she chooses to keep quiet and not make a big deal about…thats her choice.

    Btw where is MDaddy today?

  • Aunt Viv

    Let’s be honest-the music industry is fickle, and all these former Idols are getting dropped from labels and management. The likelihood that Paris will enjoy this long lasting career is slim to none-and a high school education is hardly anything to fall back on for huge financial security. And with a kid, it’s that much more difficult. The father’s occupation isn’t mentioned, but I really hope he has an education and stable employment. Our people need to stop perpetuating this cycle and thinking it’s OK.

  • GreenEyes

    Btw, I had just turned 25 when I had my first child… and I was STILL overwhelmed. More power to that girl…

  • Afiya

    OK…I’m confused…is mom glad that her daughter is having unprotected sex and isn’t married…or is mom glad that the daughter knows who the baby daddy is?
