Jill Scott Welcomes A Baby Boy!
Jett Hamilton Roberts was born at 4:20 p.m. on April 20. He weighed in at 7 lbs., 8 oz.
She first revealed her pregnancy to reporters at the Television Critics Association conference in Los Angeles in January. "The first trimester I spent in Botswana," said Scott, 37, a three-time Grammy Award winner. "That was one of the biggest challenges of my life. First trimester! You're sick every morning. It was seven hours time difference, the heat, the bugs, the 14 hour days."
But Scott continued filming through her pregnancy: "My doctors gave me a clean bill of health and said you can do this, so I did it."
The new parents, who reportedly began dating in 2007, announced their engagement at a concert in New York City on June 20. "I definitely had issues over the course of my life, reproduction issues," she explains. "I was married for five years and could never conceive a child. Until now ... It's the most amazing thing that's ever happened to me."
