Canadian singer and songwriter Tamia Hill talked motherhood and health with Deya of Black America earlier this week. Although she is often praised for her ability to balance motherhood and career life, Tamia told Deya that none of her juggling would be possible without a strong support system. “I have a lot of great people around me that help out when I need it. I have a wonderful husband, so it’s a support system. I think that so important and helpful when you’re trying to do everything.”

When not putting her creative juices to use in the studio, Tamia chauffeurs daughters Myla,10, and Lael,4. “I actually just feel like my kids’ driver,” explained the star. “When I’m not working, I’m pretty much chauffeuring them around to all of the various things that they do.  Of course, engaging in sports is on the girls long list of activities.”

So, who do the girls take after? “Myla is very much like Grant,” says Tamia. “She’s very calm, easy, laid back. Lael is kind of feisty. They do things that remind me of myself, and then they do things that remind me of Grant. It’s funny when your kids [mimic] you. Even things that I don’t really realize that I do they’ll do and I’m like, ‘that’s so me.”

Tamia and husband Grant Hill wed in 1999 . The couple have two children together.
