Jill Scott and Baby Talk

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

With a bun in the oven baking away, Jill Scott sat down to rap a taste about all things baby:

What was your gut reaction when you learned you were pregnant?
JILL SCOTT:
Shock. I didn’t think it was possible for me to have kids because I was told I couldn’t conceive. I had given up hope of becoming a mother one day.

What a blessinga miracle baby! After you got over the shock where did you stand emotionally?
SCOTT:
I had to slow down because after I found out, I was supposed to leave for Africa the next day. I called my doctor and talked about what I needed to do, what I couldn’t do and what I could do. I was just trying to take as many precautions and be as knowledgeable as I possibly could. Quite frankly, I was freaked out and everyone was asking me, “What are you going to do?” My agent was distraught, but it wasn’t about anybody else other than me finding out if the baby was going to be okay, so that’s what I did first—slow down.

Is that the sole reason that you chose to prolong the news?
SCOTT:
Well, yes, that was a large part of it. Because I’m 36 and considered a high risk for pregnancy, I wanted to make sure that everything was okay. My closest friends and family knew and that was enough for me. Oddly enough, as pregnant as I am, I didn’t have time to enjoy my pregnancy because I was working in Botswana for four and a half months playing someone else. It was a lot of hard work, and I’m not tripping about it because it was a wonderful opportunity and experience. So right now I’m chillin’— enjoying looking at cribs, mobiles, growing and finding maternity clothes and sleeping (laughs).

Aren’t y’all just so happy for Jill?  She’s a fantastic young lady and we can’t wait to see her little man.  He’s sure to have a very healthy set of pipes to keep mom and dad up all night.

    My people, my people. smh Call me old fashioned, but what’s wrong with getting married FIRST and then having a baby? I guess folks think just because a woman can provide financially, that takes the place of a stable home. Yeah…m’kay. *rollz eyez* Our Black celebrities need to recognize that having babies OOW is NOT cute. smmfh

    Ummmm bossip is late, she had her baby already…i think, lol

  • c from stl

    normally i would have something to say about her not being married first…but, the article clearly states that she was told she couldn’t conceive. Therefore, she felt it wasn’t possible in the first place so it had to have been a miracle and definitely unexpected.

    Awww, but I think her fiance is a little sweet. But I hope I am wrong.

    Good for her for being able to conceive and have a pretty hassle free pregnancy.

    If she were a true bird she would have been like Erykah, on her THIRD baby daddy.

    Go Jilly from Philly.

    Poor thang. You can’t piss me off, I don’t own Bossip. You might be able to read at a college level, but did you actually attend and/or graduate? LOL. You go ahead and get it in, however you like, and I’ll be doing my job. Be cool.

  • Dina

    grillfixer, you may be able to read at a college level but you sure can’t write at even the 3rd grade level, so you’re suspect.

    Anyway, Jill is a queen, and congratulations to her!

  • Liza M.

    jill jill poor jill – YOUR MAN IS HELLA GAY!! why oh why! her and kim fields, why are they insisting on procreating with DL men? you’re getting old, sure, so are many other women, no need to just go ahead and have a baby w/out the luxury of a legal paper!! anyway, i’ll assume they are both a bit bisexual themselves [kim and jill] smh

  • Moreaces

    Nice pic of her

  • Film

    We’ve had Little Brother, Common, Vivian, and Jill threads all in one day. I love it Bossip.

    Congrats, again, to you Jill Scott.

  • Ocean

    umm—– whyyy must someone be married 1st to get kids? marriage dont mean anything nowadays- marriage does not equal love- once the love is there- who cares! its between man and woman- not man, woman, pastor, choir, friends and haters, etc- it isnt about all of that. i am happy for her. we need to stop limiting love in boxes like religion and stuff- love is a beautiful thing- marriages are ugly!!
