Jill Scott confirmed she is pregnant by her fiancee:

Jill Scott is pregnant with her first child, the R&B singer and actress revealed to reporters at the Television Critics Association conference in Los Angeles on Friday.

Promoting her new HBO series The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, based on the popular novels by Alexander McCall Smith, Scott said she discovered that she was pregnant just before leaving for Botswana where she filmed the show. “The first trimester I spent in Botswana,” said the star, who is due April 25. “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.” Still, the actress, who is engaged to drummer Lil’ John Roberts, says she’s glad she went through with the plans to film. “My doctors gave me a clean bill of health and said you can do this, so I did it.”

Scott, 36, is a three-time Grammy Award winner and star of the 2007 Tyler Perry film Why Did I Get Married?

We wish them the best, they look happy and like a nice “wholesome” couple.

    uh…i guess congratulations is in order. well it is anytime a baby might be born. but i sure wish the women and the men would marry before making the baby, before announcing the baby, before having the baby. dont be getting all mad with me because im talking about your favorite girl Jill…its not about her. just how i feel on the subject. what the heck is wrong with marrying the people you make babies with?

    sweetie it’s 2009 who really is getting married before having a baby anymore. well in America at least I think 2009 will be the year where people will start re thinking the whole marriage thing
    If they are in love Whats the problem???

  • scooby dubious

    Akeys, I think the answer to your rhetorical question is people who know how to live orderly lives. We’re not really those people, so black people need to get married before having kids, just to get in the habit.

  • DJ's Mom

    Congrats to Jill. While I agree with scooby dubious, I also believe two involved, committed and loving parents who happen to not be married can offer just as much as a married couple.

    @ scooby dubious

    Okay Maybe people don’t want to get married in case you heard Marriage really doesn’t work and not everybody believes in marriage why can’t people do what they want and not conform to what society thinks

    According to enrichment journal on the divorce rate in America:
    The divorce rate in America for first marriage is 41%
    The divorce rate in America for second marriage is 60%
    The divorce rate in America for third marriage is 73%

  • liquidmanforever

    …..pun intended…..it’s ironic that i don’t buy Jill Scott’s musik and the only correlation that i have for her is the Tyler Perry movie where she plays an overweight wife, who can’t fit into a plane seat…..and here she is pictured in a plane seat!!…..
