LaKisha Jones: It's Another Girl!

Soon-to-be big sister Brionne is quickly learning the meaning of long distance phone calls! With her mom LaKisha Jones — who is due in August with her second child — off promoting her new album So Glad I’m Me, the 6-year-old is not only missing her mama, but her unborn baby sister as well. Revealing to PopEater that baby-on-the-way is a girl, LaKisha says her daughter is simply thrilled with the news — so much so, that when it comes to their frequent phone calls, Brionne’s vote is to talk to baby!

“So our thing is … I put the phone on my stomach and she’s like, ‘Oh hi Avie,’ because the baby’s name is going to be Ava, and she’s like, ‘I’ll see you when … you come back with mommy.'”

Despite her rise to stardom after placing fourth on the hit show American Idol, the 29-year-old says she is no celebrity! “I’m just LaKisha, the young lady who had a dream of singing and who was presented the opportunity [to do so],” she says. That said, LaKisha admits the balancing act of raising her family, while maintaining her career is “definitely a juggle.” Her advice to fellow mamas? Take it slow!

“I just take it one day at a time and try to pace myself.”
