BRANDY WANTS TO KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE MOM TO A BOY
Brandy Norwood is aiming to have another child one day, preferably a boy. The singer and songwriter recently told Essence that she’d love to have a son to hold and cherish. “I want to know what it’s like to be a mom to a boy,” said the singer. “I hear boys love their mom. My daughter is crazy about me. If it can get any better than this, I just want to see!”
Brandy’s newest album Two Eleven hit stores earlier this week with the cool song ‘No Such Thing as Too Late’ on its lineup. Although written for a general audience, Norwood had Sy’rai,10, in mind when recording it because the tween is growing up so quickly right in front of her eyes. As Brandy explains, “They’re already on the human body at school. I’m like, ‘Girl, if you ask me one more question about the human body, we’re going to have to get you another place to stay’ because it’s hard for me to come up with analogies. I love that she can come to me and communicate with me about everything. I’ve told her, ‘Mommy [is] allowed a five-minute freak out. I promise it won’t last over five minutes.’ She says, ‘Mom, you’re overreacting,’ and I’ll be like, ‘I’ve got 30 more seconds and I’ll be back to normal.’”
Sy’rai is Brandy and ex-boyfriend Robert Smith’s only child together.
