Mo'Nique on staying grounded and raising twins
Her success as a comedienne, actress and reality show host has allowedMo’Nique to afford the best for her family, which includes husbandSidney Hicks, sons Shalon, 17, and twins Jonathan and David, 21 months.However, she was brought back down to earth recently when Shalon, her son from her first marriage to Mark Jackson,reminded her of their humble beginnings.
We were doing the nursery and Shalon said, ‘Mommy, remember when mycrib was in the dining room of the one-bedroom apartment and now they’ve gotflat screens?’ He made me take a step back and think. I was tripping.
Mo’Nique, 39,also adds that it can get tough trying to balance everything around thehouse, especially with the twins’ different personalities.
David can play by himself, but Jonathan is the fire and needs the attention.
