Cover Girls: Jill Scott Covers EBONY Magazine

Jill Scott (also know as my twin) covers the May issue of EBONY Magazine with her adorable son Jett in their motherhood-themed issue. BlogHer has the exclusive scoop on the cover story. Apparently Jill opens up about life as a single mother, finding personal time and her love for her 3-year old boy.

Here are a few snippets from the interview:

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."

Love how candid Jill is about her role as a mother - can't wait to uncover the new issue! For more quotes from the article, head to BlogHer for a sneak peek.

The May issue of EBONY Magazine will be available on newsstands April 16th.

  1. Beautiful, I love Jill she is such an inspiration!

  2. First Jill looks gorgeous. I love her reply on being a single motherhood as an unwed mother I understand her completely. It definitely takes a village to help your raise your kid. You cannot do it all or by yourself.


    Love your spring look by the way!
