Proud mom Jill Scott covers EBONY Magazine’s May Issue with her 3-year-old son Jett Hamilton. Inside the publication, the singer talks of the challenges of being a single mom, raising a boy, and much more. See highlights from the interview below:

Jill on motherhood:

“Motherhood is getting your hands and your feet in the soil…When Jett puts my face in his hands and tells me, ‘Mommy you’re so pretty’ or smells me, it’s so wonderful.”

Jill on being a single-mom:

“That I-can-do-it-by-myself mentality is a lie. I’m sorry if I hurt anybody’s feelings, but you cannot do it all by yourself. You need a village: some aunties, grandmoms, friends. I couldn’t do this by myself and would be a fool to think I could.”

On Raising a Boy:

“It’s challenging being a single mom … No matter what I do, I’ll never be a man. Ever. I can show Jett how to be a thinker, how to enjoy music or how to feel, and to conquer. But I cannot show him how to be a man.”

The May issue of EBONY Magazine hits newsstands April 16th.

  4. He is a handsome boy! He seems like he just wants to run away & play lol

    Is his father not in his life? She shouldn’t have to worry about showing him to be a man, if his father is there to do it

  5. Jett is sooo handsome and Jill is beautiful. However, I must disagree. My mom raised my siblings and I by herself! No villages, grandparents or aunties just her! She did an amazing job if I must say.

  6. “When Jett puts my face in his hands and tells me, ‘Mommy you’re so pretty’ or smells me, it’s so wonderful.”

    Jet is so handsome and I agree with him. His Mommy is beautiful. I hope that as Jett ages he remembers that his mother and women who look like her are beautiful externally and internally.
