Scott Finds Parenthood 'Tough' After Broken Engagement

Singer/actress JILL SCOTT is struggling to juggle her career with her new responsibilities as a single mother after calling off her engagement to fiance LIL' JOHN ROBERTS.
The triple Grammy winner and drummer Roberts welcomed son Jett Hamilton Roberts into the world in April (09).
But Scott reveals the couple has since parted ways, although Roberts continues to play an active role in the boy's upbringing.
She tells Essence magazine, "He (Roberts) was there (for the birth) and for a couple of days afterwards while I stayed in the hospital, but John and I are no longer together.
"When you have a baby you're dealing with a lot of emotions and I don't know how much of it had to do with us breaking up, but it happens.
"We definitely love our son and we are co-parenting and working on being friends. I have hopes for (Jett) and I'm sure his father will do his part as well."
However, Scott admits she sympathises with other single mothers, especially youngsters who find themselves bringing up kids on their own.
She adds, "My heart and prayers go out to all single mums because it's tough, and I can't imagine any teenager dealing with a baby and all those hormones raging. I can afford to have this child at 37 because I have a support system... but I don't understand how any mother does it alone."
