Soul singer and actress Jill Scott and her drummer fiancé Lil John Roberts have welcomed their first baby together. Their son, Jett Hamilton Roberts, arrived at 4.20pm on April 20 weighing 7lbs 8oz.
The 37-year-old No 1 Ladies Detective Agency actress discovered she was pregnant just before leaving for Botswana to record the series.
When the triple Grammy winner announced in January she was expecting, she admitted combining work commitments with the pregnancy had initially been tough. "The first trimester I spent in Botswana. That was one of the biggest challenges of my life… It was seven hours time difference, the heat, the bugs, the 14-hour days."
Doctors gave her a clean bill of health, though, and said 'you can do this', she reveals
