    @arlyssa u should be banned completely …. I don’t call people names but you are the epitome of an idiot. This pictures were not payed for like MANY celebrities do. She tweeted that they are the joy of her life. She is one of the best celeb moms because she LEFT the industry completely for 4 years to have them. Now she has no shame in loving them, the lord, her husband and family. May God have mercy on you. Good job to her For keeping them as well groomed young men, and allowing them to see the world and share in her job . Not to mention the oldest was in 2nd grade at age 5. She has dOne more than a little right. But hey negativity Is the way of the world. So not much more is exspected of some. Great job raising your boys Monica

    She is one of the best moms in showbiz! Love the way she dresses and spends time with her kids. I should have voted for her. I totally forgot about Monica as BCK mother.

  • Surprise May 25, 2011 at 5:16 pm

    Beautiful family as always. But the boys don’t look anything a like. JMO

    • Fashionedbygod33 May 25, 2011 at 5:25 pm

      I agree, I think they are very beautiful family and the boys look nothing a like to me either. If I didn’t know they were brothers, I would never guessed it. They are so diverse looking and cuties in their own way.

  • mel May 25, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    Monica has some handsome boyz.

  • taylr_womn81 May 25, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    Love this family beautiful…to the people that said something about the picture looking like she favors one son over the next R U FREAK’N SERIOUS and then there is one person that said they were coming from a photographer point of you if you were then you can clearly see her lean which means that she is obviously holdiing the other son by the waste as well and considering the age differance in the two it fits to have the younger son on her lap. GEEZ!

    • RUSERIOUS?? May 26, 2011 at 11:36 am

      I was seeing/saying the same thing! People read too much into NEGATIVE stuff…that is just crazy to me!! You can CLEARLY see that she has one on her lap and holding the other….GROW UP! Yall always looking for something negative….GHEEESH!!

  • LondonBaby May 25, 2011 at 3:37 pm

    they look nothing a like but one thing they have in common, they are both gorgeous!

  • EVELINA RAE May 25, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    Thumbs up! Beautiful. All three impeccably coiffed and groomed. This is what I come to BCK to see. Something inspirational.

  • theyknow May 25, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    I love this pic and Monica never seems to age any at all. Handsome sons!!

  • bck reader May 25, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    if it’s a family pic and she’s married to that guy Shannon now, shouldn’t he now be included in her “family”? i just noticed that they seem to still do some things separate even though they’re together and she’s moved out to the west coast for that reason. just an observation i’ve had for a while now. even though the courtship seemed very fast, i certainly hope things work out a lot better for her this time around.

    anywho, handsome boys Monica :-)

    • theyknow May 25, 2011 at 12:18 pm

      It says pictures so I’m sure this was not the only one taken, maybe this is just the one she liked the most!!

  • Teek May 25, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    Romelo is going to be such a Mama’s boy. Love the picture. Is Monica pregnant? Her face is looking a little full here.

  • gtsa May 25, 2011 at 11:29 am

    That is one gorgeous family pic.

  • Seriously May 25, 2011 at 11:00 am

    Cute picture…Rodney rarely smiles. :)

  • CaramelKiss May 25, 2011 at 10:52 am

    I think the whole family is very photogenic HOWEVER, I wish that the photographer would have been a little more mindful of what Monica was wearing as it looks like she favors one son over the other by having her wear that yellow and having her arm around him and not Rocko. Just a little observation.

    • RUSERIOUS?? May 25, 2011 at 11:07 am

      ARE YOU SERIOUS?? What if YELLOW is just her favorite color and she just wanted to wear that color. Your statement was about as STUPID as I have heard today….JUST STUPID!!

    • Amber May 25, 2011 at 1:02 pm

      you know i observed the same thing when i saw the picture; from a professional photographer/ visual POV it’s not the best pose/color choices, especially b/c rocko doesn’t always smile.

      so no,it doesn’t seem very well thought out imo either…

    • Misunderstood May 25, 2011 at 1:22 pm

      I semi agreed with u he should of been mindful but I bet it was just a coincidence. Monica loves her boys equally I watched her show keep up the good work their sweet boys.

    • EVELINA RAE May 26, 2011 at 8:21 am

      Rodney’s shirt has yellow on it, too. Take a look at his 6th birthday photos and you’ll see.
