SINGER CHILLI OF TLC TALKS ABOUT SON TRON
On son Tron:
“Tron is funny; he has a lot of talents but he’s only 10, so the one thing I refuse to do is get him out there into doing television and stuff like that. I want him to be a kid and enjoy being a teenager. Once he graduates from high school, if that’s something he really wants to pursue, then he can do that. But right now, after high school is college. I’ll support whatever he wants to do…[I hope] he continues to grow up and be the smart boy.He’s so funny. He is just so hilarious and extremely smart. He’s just a great person. He loves the Lord.

On Raising Tron:
I’m sure Tron will grow up one day and say that I did something that he didn’t like or whatever. But basically what I’ve been doing is remembering things with my mom, how she was a parent to me. I have very good examples around me and the main thing is that I’ve always wanted to be a mommy. I love it so much and so I’m always trying to be the best mom for Tron–and even if I had other kids. People don’t realize that they don’t ask to be here; you choose to have them and God blesses you with these wonderful babies and you should just love them to no end. So I just don’t understand people having kids and not being great parents to their babies…..
It’s hard to balance [career and being a mom] but it’s not a struggle because Tron is first. I put him before I put myself. I’ve never had a nanny. I’m not saying people don’t need help but I don’t do that because I want to do everything for him myself. But he’s just first. It’s a lot of things that I’ve turned down because I chose to put my baby first.”
