When asked by OK Magazine what the best and hardest aspects of being a mother are, R&B singer Monica said she enjoys the pure love that a mother and son share, but says she knows that her son needs space from her every now and then.
"The best part is the unconditional love we share, " she says, "He’s a child and nothing has ever happened to him to distort his image of what love is. The hardest part is having to leave him, even during the day when I drop him off at my mom’s house so I can take care of work stuff. But I recognize that he doesn’t need to be smothered by me. Mama’s boys are not cute."
Monica has one child, 15 month old son Rodney Ramone Hill III aka "Lil Rock", with her fiance, producer Rodney "Rock" Hill Jr.
