ERYKAH BADU TELLS HER CHILDREN TO FOLLOW THEIR HEARTS

Singer Erykah Badu is a gifted artist and mother of three children. Badu is also a midwife in training who enjoys being a part of the birthing process. In a recent interview with BET Erykah discussed her experience as midwife trainee and her 7-year-old daughter’s fancy with the arts. Here are highlights from the interview.

On midwife training and teaching her children African American History.

“[As a training midwife] It’s my pleasure to be the welcoming committee. [I teach my children] very early on who they are, what their culture is about, and how we got to where we are right now as a race of people.”

Puma’s interest in entertainment.

“She’s always singing and wants to act and model but it has to be something you want to do. It’s a lot of commitment. [I tell my children to] Follow your heart. Don’t let anybody infiltrate your dream, especially you. And be fearless. Give your all every time and feel the success in that.”

Erykah is mother to son Seven,14, and daughters Puma,7, and Mars,3.

    Beautiful ghyrls. I hope they wont turn out like her.

  • Sherley March 1, 2012 at 1:23 pm

    Mars is given me Violet vibes.

    I’ve seen her son but I haven’t seen her daughters before. Cute girls. Puma reminds me of the Eryka Badu’s first video of her doing a young girl’s hair. I can’t think of the song but ya’ll know the video, right?

    • Trisha March 1, 2012 at 1:49 pm

      The video is On & On

      • Sherley March 2, 2012 at 8:57 am

        Yes! That’s the one. Thx!

    Mars looks nothing like her father! You sure that man is the daddy?

  • Ebony Starr March 1, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    Adorable girls. And I love the words of wisdom Erykah is giving her children.

  • trinitt March 1, 2012 at 11:07 am

    I never seen her kids before. The baby girl is cute. A.A. history is important so teach it to your kids and don’t rely in the schools to do it.

    • Nene December 10, 2012 at 9:57 pm

      I agree we as parents are our kids first teachers. It all starts at home.
