Hannah Joy was my favorite baby name when I was a freshman in highschool… 13 years ago.

This is actually Baby #4 for him. He and singer Brandy Norwood have a daughter, Serai (his 1st child).

uum @ jasmine..check your facts sweetie..brandy’s daughter sy’rai is by another music producer by the name of robert smith u kno…the guy she claimed she was married to..bran & rodney are or i should say were friends :-(

halle on

wow, I remember way back when they got married and people were um…a bit unkind. So glad to see they’re not only still together, but have a beautiful family on top of it. I remember reading an interview and being really touched by Joy’s faith in Christ. I wonder how that works with Rodney producing hip hop/secular music. (if he still does).

Anyway, congrats to them both!
